Waterfall charts in PAW based on Element Weight

The recently added waterfall chart is a great addition to PAW. However, the values (increase/decrease) are based on the values associated with an element, rather than the element weight. We often store both revenue and expenses in TM1 as positive values and use element weights to subtract expenses. This makes a Net Income waterfall incorrectly display expenses as an increase.

    Hello,

    This is great idea. We could actually base the change direction on the weight sign (positive/negative) and not on the weight itself as there might be consolidations with weights less than 1 (e.g., 0.6, 0.75, etc).

    Or we could make it even more flexible by setting up a factor of 1/-1 to be applied to the bars so that the same chart could be flipped over, e.g. for different reporting requirements.
