    This idea is not under consideration. The IBM Planning Analytics tema will continue to monitor the idea for votes and may reevaluate the idea at a later date. Please note that visualizations cannot simple be ported from Cognos Analytics to Planning Analytics. Although Cognos and Workspace use the same visualizations, the query engine to interact with TM1 data is specific to Workspace.

    While this is available for Cognos Analytics, we would also like this in Planning Analytics. We have a current request for using Sankey diagrams to visualize the profit and loss financial information for whichever area of the business is selected. Here is a link to the Cognos Analytics one. Could this be ported to Planning Analytics?
