Report Publish flag should be active by default

I am unsure about why the publish flag is inactivate by default when I think is more important to make visible a report rather than do not have it.

When you are processing big tables like Customer,Items etc and you press on Build Reports, DSP generate over a hundred reports. Then, you have go and click hundred times to active all the reports (or you do it in the background via SQL)

I understand you might need to review the report before publishing but for that, you still have flag a Source and Target level. What I suggest is to active it by default at report level (target and source) and keep it inactivate at Source, Target and Object levels.

    Thanks JP.

    But you do not immediately publish them. When you are in Transform, you either execute your target from Object, Target or Source level (and those 3 Publish check box are still inactive). Unless you press on the Publish button nothing would be published.

    In addition, those reports are automatically generated by DSP, for check table and missing values, so they should be mostly correct.

    Definitely, an activate/inactivate All button will not hurt.

    I see your concern here. I would have to think about it for a bit. I am not sure we want all reports to be published immediately for the reasons you mentioned.  Maybe there could be a button to activate all reports or something like that.
