We have Cognos BI 8.4.1 FP2 and have a need where the business users see a list of report shortcuts in a portlet on dashboard where they would also like to see the report definisiton modification date.
Something like following headers should show in the portlet on the dashboard.
Report Name Modified Date Actions
xxxxxxxxxxx 11/18/2012 Icons (property sheet, run with option, etc).
This "Modified Date" is when the underlying report design/definition was modified last.
The Report Name item xxxxxxxxxxxx is actually a Shortcut pointing to a Saved Output of a schedule executed Report View based off a Cognos Report Studio Report.
Any ideas to either directly achieve this or best alternatives welcome!
