In today’s IBM Planning Analytics Tips & Tricks video, our FP&A Technology Director, Lee Lazarow, demonstrates how to create multi-level dimensions in Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW). This new feature allows you to build brand-new dimensions by simply dragging a file onto your screen.
Watch the video and you’ll learn:
- How to take a multi-level file of cities and states in Notepad and drag it into PAW
- How the leaf-level elements will be the specific cities
- How the parent-level will be the states
- How that rolls up to a grand total called Tri-State
From there, you then learn:
- How to create a dimension
- Name your dimension
- How Planning Analytics has built-in logic to understand the levels of your file
This is just one of many new useful features in Planning Analytics.
