Hold all leaves

It would be very useful to have the possibility to hold all leaves elements at all levels from a single consolidated cells. Actually we have this capability in architect but not in planning analytics workspace.

    This idea is not under consideration. You can hold a consolidated cell, which acts as a hold on all the leaves below the consolidation when trying to spread from a consolidation on top of the consolidation that was held. I'm not sure why you would need to block spreads from above and below the consolidation at the same time (which is the only thing Architect could really do that PAW cannot).

    Although this idea is not currently under consideration it can continue to receive votes and feedback. The IBM Planning Analytics team may reevaluate the idea based on feedback.
