Missing Functionality. The report rename function from the Report Center relies on the 'native' report builder functionalities and Ad Hoc is currently missing it.


The behaviour of the Report Center functionality is as designed.

Currently it is not possible to give localize names for Ad Hoc Reports hence not possible to use the Add Localization functionality for Ad Hoc Reports.

Such enhancement is not currently planned on road map due to unified reporting solution currently in development.

Note: It might be of interest to know that it is possible for User to give localize names for ORD and Dashboards.
