Web Authoring does not expose this functionality yet. Would you consider this critical for Essbase Cube functionality? What workflows are key to your users of web authoring there?
This is CRITICAL to Essbase functionality.
Without this ability web authoring is essentially useless to me.
Essentially every view I build shows a comparison of Actual vs either Budget or Forecast, and you can’t display those different scenarios on a single dashboard without using the Utility dimension.
n Well you can’t show them on the same dashboard and calculate the delta between the two measures.
That said, I haven’t pushed web authoring at all…
Okay, so that's very interesting and we'll take that into account in our feature planning.
One workaround is that as the publisher, you can set these things during the publish step, and Web Authoring will preserve that. Granted, that won't allow dynamic customization with all the combinations, but it might allow limited exploration.
That’s what I have done.
I’ve pre-determined those scenario settings and just don’t allow a user to change them.
