We are using the information delivery portal with the report explorer portlet.
The reports are so designed that they are have multi-language support according to the users browser language (OLAP MLS) but the directory structure we build and put the reports in does not. we can build the whole directory X times for every language we need to support, ok but then we also need to duplicate the reports and thats not so good anymore. Is there a way to have a shortcut to a report so that we have one set of reports that are then individually categorized in X directory trees?
