Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

PAW - Format Row/Column by attribute

(See attached documents for detailed screenshots)

Idea Details: Use a real-life scenario to explain the problem statement/pain points,

PAW have wonderful self-service capabilities. However, when building a dashboard to present data, there’s very few options on the cubeviewer to format a view as a financial report.

One missing function is the ability to format rows by attribute (like level) in order to assign color by hierarchy level so that the report is easier to read.

State your current workaround

There’s none in PAW. The alternative is to make an excel extraction and format the report manually

State any proposed solution

Inside the view properties, we could activate the option to format the view by attribute. There would be a prompt to guide user into setting up color, text, styles, borders for each level. Each ‘style’ can be applied to several attribute values

State the benefits/value this idea has, state # of users impacted and how often are they impacted)

This enhancement would allow a user to automatically format a view as a financial report in very little time (without the need of a modeler)
