PAW - Add Spaces on Cubeview grid

(See attached document to view detailed screenshots)

Your Idea Short Name

Add Spaces on Cubeview grid

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 insert spaces between rows and columns to visually facilitate the comprehension of a financial report.

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

Right-click on any row or column and select “Insert space” And then select “Above” or “Bellow”

On this example we have inserted space to mark the delimitation between the major accounts parts (Revenue, COS, OP and Net income) as well the various versions

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

This enhancement would allow a user to format a view as a financial report in very little time.
