In today’s IBM Planning Analytics Tips & Tricks video, our FP&A Technology Director, Lee Lazarow, demonstrates how you can use words to input data in Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW) instead of numbers. In the old TM1-world, you had the ability to put numbers into your system as part of your normal planning approach. Now, you can use words. Let’s explain …
Watch our Planning Analytics video and you’ll learn how to:
- Enter words such as 2k to indicate 2,000
- Enter 2.5K for 2,500
- Use the “greater than” sign to spread values into other cells and reconsolidate them
- Have Planning Analytics Workspace do the math for you by typing in common phrases such as “add 100” or “increase by 10%”
This approach gives you a great deal of flexibility when using PAW. You can use your number keypad, your standard keyboard, or even voice commands to enter data into Planning Analytics.
