IBM Planning Analytics Workspace sheets allow users to add buttons. These buttons can be used to navigate to different sheets or books, or even run processes. But did you know you can “pass context” from one book to another?
Before beginning, ensure everything on your sheets is synchronized. This is as easy as going to the synchronization properties of any views, visualizations, etc. on your sheets and enabling “synchronize dimensions.”
To enable “pass context,” navigate to the properties of your button and select “Button target.”
Under “Other book” simply enable “Pass context.” Your button will now pass selections made from book to book.
This allows you make a selection in one book, such as a year, and then carry it over to another book.
