IBM Planning Analytics pages are defined as “books.” Each book can have multiple components on it (a view, an image, etc.) and the book can contain multiple sheets.
Most users create books by clicking on the “New” icon from the Welcome screen and selecting either a book from a list of templates or via a default format (freeform layout and tabbed workspace).
But did you know that you can save time by clicking on a single button on the Welcome screen? The top left corner contains an icon that looks like a diamond.
You will notice that this is an icon (and not just an image) since the image will change slightly as you hover over it. By clicking on this image, you can create a book that uses the default format.
This “hidden” approach in Planning Analytics will help you save time by creating a new PAW Book via a single click.
