Front end PAW issues. Synchronization of dimensions in different workbook using applications in IBM Workspace

Front end issues on IBM PAW interface. Synchronization of dimensions in different workbook using applications in IBM PAW.

1) We would like to submit enhancement request. Synchronization of dimensions in all the BOOKS within one application cannot be done in PAW. We have raised the PMR for this point and we received response from IBM Product team that, this functionality is not available in current version of IBM Planning Analytics Workspace application. They have suggested us to raise enhancement request to add this option in future release

This concern is raised by customer.

Workaround - We have created a static navigation section using the "pass context" functionality from Navigation action buttons, which meets the business expectations for navigation and synchronization. But the customer is not happy with this workaround solution, as 20% of the work area of all the worksheet is consumed by this static navigation.

In a nutshell, the customer is looking for a dynamic plan sidebar which includes "pass context" or "Sync" of dimensions. We observed that, both IBM PAW applications and plans do not provide this functionality.

2) The synchronization between 2 dimensions in PAW. For example we have one dimension as Project and second as zone. both dimensions are 2 different dimensions. Customer requirement is once we select Project, related zone should be changed automatically with some kind of synchronization functionality.

IBM Support response: Synchronization with differently named dimensions is not currently supported. This will be in a future release of paw.

3) While using IBM PAW application, the plan slide bar takes a noticeable amount of time to load the content/tasks assigned in application/plan.

Workaround - We have implemented the same static button approach mentioned in point No. 1.

    This enhancement request is currently under review. The IBM Planning Analytics team is generally aligned with maintaining context when navigating between books in the same step of a plan or application.
