Ref. Analytics & Queues: Adjust a queue's Ref. Analytics settings

In this article

Each queue can be configured to have the Add to Ref. Analytics option turned on or off by default. When turned on, you can additionally choose the default dataset selection, with two options:

  • Configure the queue to show the user-level default dataset.
  • Alternatively, assign a specific dataset as the default for the whole queue, regardless of who is entering the transaction. This way, if the queue requires a certain dataset, the individual user will not need to update the dataset each time.

Note that when entering a transaction, a user can always change the specified dataset, so long as they have access to it. They are not locked into the default. But choosing the default for the queue can save your team time, plus help prevent the mistake of accidentally submitting transactions to the wrong dataset.
