Cognos allow other members from PA cube to be used as members and enable multiple widget connections

I would like to be able to use all dimensions from OLAP source as measures in visualizations. Currently I can only compare members that are in measure dimension in KPI visualization. This makes it so that you cant compare Actual vs Budget or any members from other dimensions. This also makes it hard to use visualizations that have multiple slots for measures. The ability to use other dimension than the measure dimension as measure in visualization would need to be accompanied by the ability to use the measure dimension in other places in visualizations. This would allow us to then select in which member measure we would like to see the comparison in. When using Cognos Analytics with Planning Analytics cubes we can't select dimensions that will synchronize. Currently you can disconnect a visualization but you can't achieve the same level of dimensional synchronization as you can in Planning Analytics. Users of Planning Analytics will surely want to have the same functionality in Cognos Analytics.
