The Forecaster Aid Selection Panel can be used to show a list of reports. Since 2017.02 a explorer location document attribute can be configured. When an explorer location is selected containing the configured attribute, the document will be automatically selected. 

Example Configuration

In the DisplayConfigFiles, a forecasterAidSelectionPanel.xml should be added:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<forecasterAidSelectionPanel xmlns="" xmlns:xsi="" xsi:schemaLocation="">

In Explorer.xml the task should be configured using a <displayConfigFileName>:

Explorer Task
		<explorerTask name="List of Reports">
			<!-- old configuration:

Finally, the locations for which a report document is available should have the attribute named in forecasterAidSelectionPanel, which contains the name of the file which should be selected (case-sensitive, including the file extension). For example:

	<locationSet id="my_loc_set">
			<attribute id="document">

Additional configuration
