Chapter 1. What's new

This section contains a list of new, changed, and removed features for this release.

It will help you plan your upgrade and application deployment strategies and thetraining requirements for your users.

To locate the most current product documentation, go to the IBM Cognos TM1information center (http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ctm1/v10r1m0/index.jsp)

New features in version 10.1.0Listed below are new features in IBM Cognos TM1 since the last release.

Enhancements to Cognos TM1 ApplicationsThere have been several enhancements to Cognos TM1 Application Web:

The Cognos TM1 Applications portal and workflow pages have a new look anduse new icons for the status and workflow states.

See Chapter 2, “Getting Started with Cognos TM1 Applications,” on page 5.

New types of application are availableIBM Cognos TM1 Application Web Application Web now offers three types ofapplications.

ApprovalA bottom-up, submission-based workflow with review, edit, and submitrights. Typically these applications use current data with a fixed time scaleto complete and offer the ability to lock the data after submission. Takingownership is required in an approval-based application.

ResponsibiltyAn ongoing, rolling type of workflow with review and edit rights that istypically used for sales planning. This type of application requires anapproval hierarchy but does not use submission or locking of data sincedata entry is ongoing, with no fixed deadline

CentralA workflow designed to manage central assumption data needed tomaintain the applications. In these types of applications the data istypically controlled by corporate level users instead of sales or contributorusers and often contains data such as price, cost, and merit increase.Central applications may be deployed to the Cognos TM1 Application Webclient, or to Cognos Insight in Connected mode. They cannot be deployedto Cognos Insight in Distributed mode.

See the IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler Guide for more information aboutdesigning these different types of applications.

Select which client to useYou can select which client to use from the application.

If the Modeler has deployed the Application to more than one client, you canright-click the application and select which client to use. Depending on the model,not all clients are always available.

See the IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler Guide for details.

Warning messages when taking ownership awayA warning message informs users who are about to take ownership away fromother users.

Warning messages are now available to indicate that taking ownership of a nodemay affect other users.

In previous releases, no message was given when a new owner "bounced"ownership of a node. Using a new pmpsvc_config.xml parameter, administratorscan indicate the scope of ownership that triggers a warning message. Settingsinclude:

All Triggers a warning message to a user about to take ownership if there areany other owners of that node whether they are currently active or not.

Active Triggers a warning message to the user about to take ownership only whenthere are other active users of the node. The warning is not triggered ifthere are other owners who are not currently active on that node.

None Does not trigger a warning message to the user about to take ownershipaway from any users, regardless of their active or ownership status.

See “Ownership, Bouncing, and Releasing” on page 8.

Releasing ownershipA new feature allows users to release ownership.

Previously the only way to relinquish ownership of a node was for another user totake ownership away. Now, after you have taken ownership of a node in IBMCognos TM1 Application Web , you can use the Release workflow action to allowother users to gain access to the node. In earlier releases a user was able to takeownership without a current owner being aware of that action (bouncing).

See the "Using the Toolbar" topic in the "Working with Data" chapter of the IBMCognos TM1 Applications Guide

Cognos TM1 Applications enhancements in Cognos TM1Performance Modeler

The following new IBM Cognos TM1 Applications features are described in theIBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler Guide but they can be seen when usingCognos TM1 Applications.v Activation or deactivation of an application is recognized by the Cognos TM1

Performance Modeler.Before you can edit data in cubes used in an Active Application which containsthe approval hierarchy (for Responsibility and Approval application types) inCognos TM1 Performance Modeler, first go to the Cognos TM1 Applications port

and deactivate the application. Alternatively, you can instead use one of theclients to edit the data, as a non-administrator user would.

v Administrators can add a new server without being an administrator on thecurrent Cognos TM1 server.

v When a user takes ownership of a node:For a Responsibility or Approval application, the user is given exclusive writeaccess to all the Views containing the approval hierarchy. For any Views in theapplication that don't contain the approval hierarchy, the ability to edit dependson usual Cognos TM1 object securityFor a Central application, the user is granted exclusive write access to all theViews in the application. There is no notion of Submit for a Central application,but the user may choose to Release ownership once their work is complete. Auser of a Central application type is not required to take ownership to be able toedit data.

v Warning messages are posted if certain Cognos TM1 configuration settings arenot set.

See the IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler Guide for more details.

Add comments to a cellYou can add comments to a cell to track changes or add information.

Comments can be added per approval hierarchy node and provide a way to trackchanges or provide more information about a cell's contents.

See “Add comments to TM1 Applications” on page 9.

Changed features in version 10.1.0Listed below are changes to features in IBM Cognos TM1 since the last release.

Websheets available in TM1 ApplicationsWebsheets are now available as an object in IBM Cognos TM1 Applications.

As an object in your application, websheets offer enhanced view formattingoptions, Action Buttons to run different views, and the ability to launchTurboIntegrator processes as part of the view. As with other objects, once you haveidentified which Websheets are needed by the application, you can drag theWebsheet into the Design pane.

See the "Working with Websheets" chapter of the IBM Cognos TM1 User Guide formore information.

Chapter 2. Getting Started with Cognos TM1 Applications

IBM Cognos TM1 Applications is the comprehensive infrastructure used to powerand manage Cognos TM1 planning applications.

Cognos TM1 Applications serves as the basis for organizing and managingapplications. Application modelers offer the choice of using Cognos TM1Application Web, Cognos Insight in distributed or Cognos Insight in connectedmode to contribute to their applications. In addition, Cognos TM1 PerformanceModeler can be launched from Cognos TM1 Applications and is used by modelersto plan and build the data structures on which applications are based.

Each of the clients available through Cognos TM1 Applications has advantages,and the modeler makes the determination of which to offer based on severalfactors.

Cognos Insight

v Cognos Insight offers a flexible and interactive experience with a choiceof distributed or connected modes.

v In its distributed mode, Cognos Insight uses an interactive canvas layoutfor planning and analysis applications that provides responsive, rapiddiscovery and navigation.

v Since calculation and query processing in a distributed architectureoccurs locally only after the slice of data downloads, administrators candeploy Cognos Insight applications to more distributed users from thesame central server hardware.

v Cognos Insight cannot be used on applications that contain websheets.

Cognos TM1 Application Web

v Cognos TM1 Application Web is a good choice when you need a highdegree of formatting or when you do not want to install the CognosInsight component on your local machine.

v Cognos TM1 Application Web offers the rich formatting provided bywebsheets, in addition to slices and other detailed navigation of cubedata.

v Applications that use a canvas layout show a simple multi-tabbed viewwhen used with Cognos TM1 Application Web.

Either Cognos Insight (in either distributed or connected mode) or Cognos TM1Application Web can be used interchangeably if the application uses cube viewsalone and has multiple sandboxes disabled. You can select which client you wantto use on these applications.

To choose a client, select the application and right-click to display the clientsavailable for that application.

Set PreferencesSpecify preferences for IBM Cognos TM1 Application Web, including the numberof entries in the list view, type of separator, and style.

2. Type in your user ID and password and click OK.

3. Click the My Preferences button and specify the settings you want tochange.

Open Cognos TM1 ApplicationsTo start reviewing or adding data, you must have an intranet or Internetconnection.

Procedure1. Open a Web browser. Type the Web address supplied by your administrator in

the address bar, typically http://<server_name>:<port_number>/pmpsvc

2. Type in your user ID and password and click OK.3. Click on the application to which you want to contribute.

On the workflow page, you see a graphical overview of all the areas for whichyou are responsible and the status of the data.

4. To start using Cognos TM1 Applications, in the tree on the left side of thescreen, expand the approval hierarchy tree to select a node or click on a nodein the table.Tip: To see the details panel for more information about a node, click the bluedown arrow.

WorkflowThe Workflow screen displays when you log on. It consists of a tree, a table, andapproval hierarchy.

The tree on the left side of the screen shows, in a hierarchical form, the areas thatyou are responsible for contributing to and reviewing. The exact items you see inthe tree depend on your specific rights in the application. When you click an itemin the tree, a table with the details for the item displays on the right side of thescreen.

An item in the tree or table is known as a node. Typical examples are SalesDivision, Marketing Division, Development Division, and Cost Center. The namesdepend on the design of your application.

The Tree

Each item in the tree has an icon that indicates the current state of the data.

Table 1. Workflow States

Icon State and description

Available

The node has not been opened and the data has notbeen changed or saved.

Reserved

The user has taken ownership of the node and data inthis state can be submitted for review.

Locked

The data was submitted and the item was locked. Datain this state is read-only. If an item is rejected, its statereturns to Reserved.

Incomplete

At least one item belonging to this item is Available,and at least one other item is in a state of Reserved,Locked, or Ready. Data in this state was aggregated.The Incomplete state applies only to review items.

Ready

All items belonging to the reviewer are locked. The datais ready to be submitted to the next level in thehierarchy.

Review DataYou are responsible for reviewing the nodes as identified on the Workflow screen.

When you have appropriate rights to nodes, you can view them in any state. Youcan view more than one node at a time, but each node that you open from theWorkflow page opens in a separate window. If you have the appropriate rights fora consolidated node, you can view, edit and submit data for all of the related leafnodes right in the same grid window by using the approval dimension drop-downlist to switch between the nodes in the hierarchy.

When a node has been submitted for review, it becomes Locked .

If you are not satisfied with the contents of a node, and you have appropriaterights, you can reject it, either from the workflow screen, or from the grid byclicking the Reject button . The state of a rejected node changes from Locked toReserved .

When you have submitted all contribution nodes in a review, it has a Ready state

. If you are satisfied with all the contents, submit the node .

Chapter 2. Getting Started with Cognos TM1 Applications 7

Page 14: IBM Cognos TM1 Version 10.1.0: TM1 Applications …public.dhe.ibm.com/software/data/cognos/documentation/...Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler, first go to the Cognos TM1 Applications

Submit DataYou submit a node to the next reviewer in the planning model hierarchy when youare satisfied with the data it contains.

After you submit the node, it is locked and you can make no further changes tothe data. The reviewer can either accept or reject the changes that you made to thenode.

To submit data, you must have submit rights. If your administrator has enabledmultiple sandboxes you cannot submit your node from the workflow page. If youare using multiple sandboxes you must select the sandbox you want to submit inCognos TM1 Application Web.

Depending on the current node you are working with and the rights you have forthat node, you can submit a single leaf node, multiple leaf nodes or a consolidatednode.

Submitting a consolidated node or a single leaf nodeUse the submit icon to submit a consolidated node or a single leaf node.

Procedure

From the toolbar click the Submit icon .

Submitting all leaf nodes under a consolidated nodeUse the Submit Leaf Children option to submit all leaf nodes under a consolidatednode.

Procedure

From the toolbar, click the Submit leaf children icon .

Note: This action submits only the leaf nodes to which you have the appropriaterights.

Submitting all leaf nodes and a consolidated nodeIf you are the owner of a consolidated node and related leaf nodes, and want tosubmit both the consolidated and leaf nodes at the same time, you must performthe steps separately.

Procedure

1. From the toolbar, click the Submit leaf children icon .

2. From the toolbar, click the Submit icon .

Ownership, Bouncing, and ReleasingOnce you have taken ownership of a node, other users cannot access its data.

Page 15: IBM Cognos TM1 Version 10.1.0: TM1 Applications …public.dhe.ibm.com/software/data/cognos/documentation/...Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler, first go to the Cognos TM1 Applications

After taking ownership, use Release ownership to release the data so other people

can use it . In TM1 Application Web , you must submit all nodes at the level atwhich you take ownership and you can only release ownership at the level youhave taken ownership. For example, if you have taken ownership of a parent node,then decided that you wanted to submit a child node individually, you would firsthave to Release your ownership of the parent node, then take ownership of thechild node in order to submit only the child node. You could then Releaseownership of the child node and re-take ownership of the parent node.

If you attempt to take ownership of a node that is currently owned by anotheruser, the system can provide a warning message and offer the opportunity tocancel out of taking ownership. Your administrator can configure thepmpsvc_config.xml to control whether a user who is about to "bounce" ownershipof a node receives a warning message and the chance to cancel out. The setting hasthree possible values:

Never Users are not informed if taking ownership would result in other userslosing ownership.

Active The user attempting to take ownership gets a warning message that thereare other users actively working in the TM1 Application Web client on thatnode. The user can decide to cancel the action of taking ownership orcontinue to take ownership regardless of active users on the node.

AlwaysThe user attempting to take ownership gets a warning message if there areactive or non-active owners of the node. The user can decide to cancel theaction of taking ownership or continue to take ownership regardless ofactive or non-active users on the node.

Add comments to TM1 ApplicationsIn applications with approval hierarchy you can add comments to the node or cell.

When an application is viewed in the portal, you can add comments to an entireapplication, to a node, or to a cell.

The comments that have been added to an application display in the Commentsstatus field.

You can click on a comment to open and edit it in the lower pane of the portal.The columns in this display can be used to sort the information displayed. Dateand time when the comment was added is displayed in addition to the title for thecomment and the comments themselves.

You can enter comments for a specific cell in either Cognos TM1 Application Webor in Cognos Insight. These cell comments may be applied from within the clientto any application type, whether it has an approval hierarchy or not. Cellcomments are not displayed in the list of comments in the workflow pages, asthese relate only to comments against approval hierarchy nodes.

Chapter 3. Working with Data

Adding or editing data in the web client allows you to submit information to yourdatastore. To modify data, your system administrator must grant you access.

Data that you can edit has a white background. Read-only data has a graybackground. If you are not the current owner, the data opens in a read-only view.

To start adding or editing data, click Take Ownership .

You can edit data only if it has a workflow state of Available or Reserved .The icons indicate the workflow state.

Ownership availability for a particular node can be changed depending on howthe parent node is opened. For example, contributors and reviewers who open theparent node in IBM Cognos Insight are not able to take ownership of the node. Seethe IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler Guide and IBM Cognos Insight Guides fordetails on ownership and nodes.

After taking ownership, use the Release icon to release the data so otherpeople can use it . In Cognos TM1 Application Web, you must submit all nodes atthe level at which you take ownership and you can only release ownership at thelevel you have taken ownership. For example, if you have taken ownership of aNew England node, then decided that you wanted to submit an child node such asMassachusetts individually, you would first have to Release your ownership of theNew England node, then take ownership of the Massachusetts node in order tosubmit only the Massachusetts node. You could then Release ownership of theMassachusetts node and re-take ownership of the New England node.

If you attempt to take ownership of a node that is currently owned by anotheruser, the system can provide a warning message and offer the opportunity for theuser to cancel out of taking ownership. Your administrator can configure thepmpsvc_config.xml in one of three ways to control whether a user who is about to"bounce" ownership of a node receives a warning message and the chance tocancel out:

Never Users are not informed if taking ownership would result in other userslosing ownership.

Active The user attempting to take ownership gets a warning message that thereare other users actively working in the Cognos TM1 Application Web clienton that node. The user can decide to cancel the action of taking ownershipor continue to take ownership regardless of active users on the node.

AlwaysThe user attempting to take ownership gets a warning message if there areactive or non-active owners of the node. The user can decide to cancel theaction of taking ownership or continue to take ownership regardless ofactive or non-active users on the node.

Parts of the WorkspaceThe workspace is comprised of multiple parts.

The following parts are found in the workspace:v Tabs

A separate tab represents each view in the application.v Dimension Bar

Toolbar area that shows the dimensions that are in the rows, columns, andcontext.

v DimensionsEach dimension displays as a collection of related data, such as products ordates.

v GridThe area where you add or edit data at the intersection of a column and row.

v Grab HandlesSpecific area where you can grab a dimension or tab to move it around the grid.

TabsA tab is a collection of dimensions and that represents a view. Each tab typicallycontains a specific dimension that is not common to other tabs.

Usually, this dimension defines the function of the tab. However, tabs also sharecommon dimensions, such as months, budget versions, and divisions that are oftenused to filter the grid.

DimensionsDimensions define the grid of the tab, forming the rows, columns, and context. Adimension is a list of related items that often include calculations.

Dimensions can include lists of departments, products, customers, months, andprofit and loss or balance sheet line items.

All dimensions within a tab determine the information shown in the grid. Whiledimensions in rows or columns display all of the items in their lists, contextdimensions filter the grid to display only information for the active item.

Row and Column DimensionsThe row and column dimensions are shown on the Dimension Bar.

Placing a dimension into a row or column displays each of its list items as aheading, and a cell is created for every intersecting row and column.

Basic Layout

The basic layout has one row and one column dimension on the dimension bar.

Page 19: IBM Cognos TM1 Version 10.1.0: TM1 Applications …public.dhe.ibm.com/software/data/cognos/documentation/...Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler, first go to the Cognos TM1 Applications

Nested Layout

Nesting dimensions on the rows or columns increases the amount of data visibleon the grid and lets you view more specific information. For example, thefollowing grid has two dimensions nested on the rows.

Note: Each parent dimension item of a nested row or column contains repeatedchild dimension items. Each dimension added to a row or column multiplies thenumber of rows or columns by the number of items in the nested dimension.

Context DimensionsContext dimensions do not appear on the rows or columns but filter the context ofthe grid. While row and column dimensions display all of their list items in thegrid, context dimensions limit the items in the grid by displaying only informationrelated to the active item in the dimension.

Multiple context dimensions may exist, and each context dimension filters theinformation in the grid cumulatively. You can change the context of the grid bychanging the context dimensions on the Dimension Bar.

Using rows and columns alone to find specific data may decrease readability.Using context dimensions alone to view general data may also limit readability. Bynesting dimensions and filtering context you can make data entry and gridnavigation easier.

Using the toolbarThe IBM Cognos TM1 Application Web toolbar buttons provide shortcuts tocommonly used commands.

The following table describes each button in the toolbar.

Icon Button Name Description

Editing and Replacing DataYou can edit data in leaf cells, providing you have Write access to those cells.

Leaf cells appear with a white background.

Procedure1. Edit a value in a white cell in one of the following two ways.

v Replace the value - Click a value in a white cell and the cell becomeshighlighted indicating that it is in Edit mode. You can then replace theexisting value in the cell by typing over it.

v Edit the value - Double-click a value in a white cell and the cell becomesbordered with white background and a blinking cursor. You can nowselectively edit the existing value by using the left and right arrow keys onyour keyboard to position the cursor within the value. You can also use theBackspace and Delete keys to remove single numbers from the value.

2. After entering a new number, press Enter. The grid refreshes to display thenew data, all new and unsaved data displays blue.If you enter or change data and click on another cell, the grid does not refreshand the changed data displays green.

Copying and Pasting DataCopy commands copy a value or operation to the left, right, above, or below rowsand columns on a single tab.

Copy commands only apply to cells of the same type as the original cell. Thesecommands only apply to the current grid. These commands apply to breakbackcells, but do not apply to nested, hidden, or collapsed dimensions.

v When a shortcut such as 10K is entered, the numbers are multiplied by 1000, or1000000 at the client end and then the shortcut is converted to the equivalentspreadcode.

v The Cognos TM1 spreadcodes cannot be used in combination with CognosBusiness Intelligence Planning Contributor shortcuts. For example. P%Add10 orRPAdd10 are not allowed. Also, Cognos Planning Contributor shortcuts cannot beused in combination with Cognos TM1 shortcuts. For example, Add10Sub20 is aninvalid entry.

v The Cognos Business Intelligence Planning Contributor shortcuts of Multiply,Divide, Power and Reset are not available in TM1 .

v All Grow commands whether Compound or Linear, are converted to the CognosTM1 GR spreadcode command. GR command can only do a Linear Growth

v The direction of spread can be entered at the start or the end of the shortcut.Shortcut strings with the direction in the middle are invalid. For example,Add10> or >Add10 are correct, but Add>10 or Add1>0 are invalid.

v All shortcut codes are not case sensitive. For example, add10, Add10, or aDD10produce the same result.

Using Data SpreadingYou can use data spreading to enter or edit numeric data using a predefineddistribution method, called a data spread method.

For example, you can evenly distribute a value across a range of cells, or incrementall values in a range of cells by a percentage. For details on data spread methods,see "Using Data Spreading" in the IBM Cognos TM1 User Guide.

Procedure1. To spread data, right-click a cell and click Data Spread.2. From the Spreading menu, select any data spread method.

Note: TM1 Web saves the spread values to the server. You do not need tosubmit the data after TM1 Web completes the spread.

Applying a Data Spread across Multiple Leaf Nodes from aConsolidated Node

When you are the owner of a consolidated node and related leaf nodes, you canuse data spreading from the consolidated node level to update the cell values inmultiple leaf nodes without having to separately open and edit each leaf node.

The new values are proportionately applied only to the underlying leaf nodes towhich you have rights. Cells in the leaf nodes to which you do not have rights arenot updated.

For example, if you have ownership rights to the hierarchy for the North America,US and Canada nodes, you can perform a data spread on a consolidated cell in theNorth America node and the new values will be applied to the related cells in theUS and Canada leaf nodes.

Procedure1. Open a consolidated node in the data grid.2. Right-click on a consolidated cell and click Data Spread.3. From the list, select a data spread method.

Using Cognos TM1 Application Web and other interfaces in a singleApplication

IBM Cognos TM1 Applications stores a user's data entry in a designated area oftheir Personal Workspace until it is either committed to the base model or reset(cleared).

Likewise, when using other TM1 interfaces while in Personal Workspace WritebackMode, data entry is stored in a designated area of the user's Personal Workspaceuntil it is committed to the base model or reset. Uncommitted data in any interfacecan present problems for users expecting a consistent view of data across CognosTM1 Application Web and other Cognos TM1 interfaces.

When using TM1 Application Web and another TM1 interface (Microsoft Excel,Cube Viewer, TM1 Web) on a single TM1 Application the following rules apply:

Websheets in Cognos TM1 ApplicationsYou can use Websheets as an object available to IBM Cognos TM1 Applications.

To make a websheet available to a Cognos TM1 Applications, add it to the list ofobjects in Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler. Websheets provide additionalformatting flexibility and offer Action buttons to run different views or launchTurboIntegrator processes.

Once the websheet is listed in the Objects pane, drag it into the Views node of theapplication shown in the design pane.

Once you have identified the websheet to use, validate and re-deploy theapplication so that it uses the websheet.

Cognos Insight cannot use websheets. If you try to validate or deploy to CognosInsight, the application will not deploy.

Once a websheet is added, it shows up in the application as a new tab with itsassigned name.

Until you take ownership, any action button from the websheet is grayed out asunavailable.

IBM Cognos TM1 TurboIntergrator processes can be run using actions buttons onwebsheets. Be sure you have considered the effects of running a TurboIntegratorprocess before including it as part of a websheet.

The security defined by the approval hierarchy is followed for a websheetdeployed as part of a Cognos TM1 Application.

Chapter 4. Managing Changes to the Grid

You have the flexibility to arrange the grid and data organization to suit yourneeds. You can work with many tabs at one time, or freeze columns or rows foreasier scrolling in a particular tab.

You can also modify tab placement, data sorting, and zero suppression. The nexttime you open any node in the same application, your settings are retained.

Working with TabsYou can move and reorder tabs.

If you have more tabs than can fit in the window, the hidden tabs appear in thehidden tab control area. This area is indicated by a chevron , and also displaysthe number of hidden tabs. When you click on the chevron you can select a tab toview.

If you have multiple tabs torn off that have the same context dimensions, you canonly view shared members of that dimension. Unique members of the contextdimensions cannot be shown until the tabs are returned.

Try It Yourself - Tear Off a TabYou want to see the impact of a planned business trip on the overall corporateexpenses.

To accomplish this, you will have to tear off the Corporate Expenses tab, alsoknown as the reporting cube, to see the Travel Cost and Corporate Expenses tabstogether.

Procedure1. Grab the Corporate Expenses tab and drag it to the bottom of the grid, the

curser will change to multiple folders, keep dragging the tab until you see thedrop area highlighted and an arrow indicating the placement of the tab.Now the tabs are displayed vertically.

desired grid layout. Note that a view persists in memory only as long as thebrowser view from which it originates remains unchanged. If the browser cache isemptied, the view does not persist.

Try It Yourself - Stack a DimensionYou want to see the differences in budget versions for the cost of supplies andcompare the budgets to costs for prior years. You will do this by stacking theversions dimension with the supply cost dimension on the rows.

Procedure1. On the Supply Costs tab, click and drag the 5 Versions dimension from the

context section of the dimension bar to the right edge of the row axis. Whenyou see the row axis become outlined to indicate the drop zone, release themouse button and the dimension is stacked on the rows.You can now see each supply type with the forecasts for budget version 1 and2, and the actuals for the prior 2 years.

2. You can move dimensions on the rows or columns back to the dimension barby selecting the dimension on the grab handle and dragging it onto the bar.

Replacing DimensionsYou can replace dimensions on an axis by dragging and dropping an alternatedimension on top of another dimension.

For example, you can drag a dimension from the column by clicking the grabhandle of the dimension and moving it on top of a dimension on the row. Whenyou see the replace drop zone, release the dimension.

Tip: You can swap the rows and columns to view your data differently. Forexample, if the months are on the rows, and marketing campaigns on the columns,you can swap the rows and columns to make it easier to view campaign costs overtime.

Try It Yourself - Replace DimensionsYou would like to see the individual types of marketing for each campaign. To dothis, you can swap the Marketing dimension with the Campaigns dimension onthe rows.

Procedure1. On the Marketing tab, select the grab handle of the Campaign 1 dimension

from the context.2. Drag the dimension on top of the 1 Marketing dimension on the rows. When

you see the rows outlined, release the Campaign 1 dimension. The sourcedimension now replaces the target dimension in the rows.

Editing SubsetsThe Subset Editor tool lets you define a subset for any dimension to limit thenumber of elements used in a row.

Page 39: IBM Cognos TM1 Version 10.1.0: TM1 Applications …public.dhe.ibm.com/software/data/cognos/documentation/...Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler, first go to the Cognos TM1 Applications

If you expand Revenue in the Available Elements pane, and select theconsolidation and its children, you can drag the consolidation to the Subset pane.The expanded consolidation is added to the Subset pane.

In both of the above examples, the Revenue consolidation and its children areadded to the Subset list. However, the state of the consolidation in the Subset listreflects the way the consolidation displays. In the first example, Revenue displaysas a collapsed consolidation. In the second example, Revenue displays as anexpanded consolidation and its children will be visible.

Keeping ElementsYou can reduce the list of elements in the Subset pane to only those elements youwant to keep in your subset.

In this case all other elements are removed from the subset.

Note: You can reduce the size of the Available Elements list to narrow your searchfor elements to add to your subset, but this has no effect on the elements in theSubset list.

Procedure1. Select the elements that you want to keep in the Subset list.

2. Click Keep Selected Element(s) .Only the elements that you selected to keep remain visible in the Subset list.

3. Click Save Subset to save the subset.

Results

The selected elements are removed from the Subset pane. The removed elementsstill exist in the dimension.

Note: To display all subset elements that you removed, click Subset All .

Filtering ElementsYou can filter elements in either the Available Elements pane or Subset pane.

Use these options:v Filter by Attribute - Displays only the elements that match an attribute that

you specify.v Filter by Level - Displays only the elements that match a level in the element

hierarchy.v Filter by Expression - Displays only the elements that match a pattern.

Filtering by Attribute:

The Subset Editor lets you filter elements by attribute value.

Procedure

1. Click Filter Subset, and click Filter by Attribute.2. In the Select Attribute list, select an attribute.3. In the Select value to match list, select a value.4. Click OK.

Results

All subset elements whose selected attribute matches this value remain in theelement list. All subset elements whose selected attribute does not match the valueare removed from the element list.

Filtering by Level:

The Subset Editor lets you filter elements so that only elements belonging to one ormore specified hierarchy levels remain.

Consider the following example of a three-level hierarchy.

In this example, you start with the subset shown in the figure, and then eliminateall elements from the subset except those at Level 1.

To isolate all elements whose names contain the string pattern cost, type theexpression ’cost’ in the dialog box that opens.

3. Click OK.

Results

The element list is trimmed to include only those elements that match the pattern.

Finding ElementsYou can search for elements in either the Available Elements pane or Subset paneby using the Find in Subset toolbar.

This feature performs a simple text search for elements that match a spellingpattern that you enter. This is especially useful when you want to find a specificelement within a large list of elements.

Note: The Find in Subset feature does not support wildcard characters, such as thequestion mark (?) or asterisk (*), in your search text. Instead, an asterisk (*)wildcard character is inserted at the beginning and end of the spelling pattern thatyou enter so that it searches for any occurrence of the pattern in the element list.

For example, if you enter the spelling pattern ost, this converts to *ost* andmatches such as Cost and Boston are found.

Procedure

1. Click Find in Subset or press CTRL+F.The Find in Subset toolbar opens in the Subset Editor.

2. Type a spelling pattern in the search box.A spelling pattern can include one or more alphanumeric characters, but shouldnot include wildcard characters as described above.The list of elements is searched as you type a spelling pattern.v If one or more matching elements are found, the first matching element is

located and highlighted in the list.v If a matching element is not found, the search box temporarily displays a red

background.You can also start your search at any location within the element list byclicking on an element in that section of the list. The search begins from thisnew start point when you continue your search.

3. Click Find Next or Find Previous to navigate through the element list whenmore than one matching element is found.You can also use the following keyboard commands to navigate:v Press F3 or press ENTER to find the next matching element.v Press SHIFT+F3 or press SHIFT+ENTER to find the previous element.If a next or previous matching element is not found, the search box temporarilydisplays a red background, and the search cycles through the list again.

Chapter 6. Exporting Data

You can export data to Microsoft Excel to create reports and charts, and tomanipulate data. You can also export data into a text file.

Note: If you export using either Slice to Excel or Snapshot to Excel and MicrosoftExcel is not on the server, any charts present in the grid are not exported to theresulting worksheet. If you use Export to PDF your chart will show first, followedby your values.

Procedure

1. Click Export .2. Select an export format for the report:

v Slice to Excel - Excel documents that retain a link to the server throughTM1 functions. When you open the slice and connect to the server withwhich the slice is associated, the slice displays the current cube values,provided you are running Excel with the Perspectives add-in enabled.

v Snapshot to Excel - Excel documents that contain numeric values reflectingthe cube values at the moment the export occurred. Because snapshots donot retain a link to the server, the values are static, representing a snapshotof cube values at the moment of export.

v Export to PDF - PDF documents that display cube values at the moment theexport occurred.

The Export dialog box opens.3. Select the number of rows to export:

v Export rows in current page - Exports all rows in the current page.v Export rows from beginning to current page - Exports the first row in the

first page through the last row in the current page.v Export all rows in the view - Exports all rows from all pages.

4. Select the title dimensions that you want to include in the report.5. Click OK to create the report.

The report sheets are generated and prompts you to either open or save thereport.

6. Do one of the following:v Click Open to open the report in a new browser window.v Click Save to save the report to disk.

Note: By default, exporting a slice or snapshot report to Excel displays thereport in a web browser window.For details on configuring your computer to open reports into the full,stand-alone version of Excel, see the Microsoft support web site.Additionally, if you want to use TM1 functionality with a slice that you exportto Excel, you must open the slice in the stand-alone version of Excel and have alocal version of Perspectives or Client installed on your computer.

Chapter 7. Managing IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modelerin the portal

To be able to work with the deployed IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modelerapplication, further steps are required in the portal.

All applications are visible to administrators in the applications portal. Theapplication must be activated before it can be used. After activation, theapplication is available for use. The application and properties can also be edited.

Activating an application in a portalThe IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler application must be activated beforeusers can use it from the Applications portal.

Procedure1. Open the portal. The applications are listed on the left side under the Name

column.2. To activate the application, under the Actions column, click the Activate

Application icon .

Exporting an application from the portalYou can export an IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler application for use as atemplate for a new application, or as a backup for an existing application.

About this task

An application should only be exported to a server that does not have thatapplication or uses a different dimension for the approval hierarchy of theexported application. An archive is created and contains the XML files thatdescribes the structure and security of your application.

Procedure1. Open the Cognos Applications portal.2. Click the Export Application icon under the Actions column.3. From the File Download dialog box, click Save.4. Navigate to the directory to where you want to save the export file.5. Click Save.

Importing an exported application to the portalYou can import an exported application back into the Applications Portal and useit as the basis for a new application.

Procedure1. Open the Applications portal.2. Click the Import Application button.3. Select the server onto which you want to import the application.

Page 56: IBM Cognos TM1 Version 10.1.0: TM1 Applications …public.dhe.ibm.com/software/data/cognos/documentation/...Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler, first go to the Cognos TM1 Applications

4. Next to the Application file field, click Browse .5. Navigate to the application (.zip) file, then click Open.6. Select the Import application security option if you want to import security

settings with the application.7. Select the Import application properties option if you want to import property

settings with the application.8. Click Import.

Resetting an application in the portalYou can reset all nodes in the approval hierarchy to their original state after theapplication is deployed to the Applications portal.

About this task

Resetting an application discards all progress made in the planning process so thatyou can restart the planning process. Resetting an application does not reset ordiscard any data changes.

Procedure1. Open the Applications portal.2. Next to your application name, select the check box.3. Click the Reset Application button.4. Click OK to confirm the reset.

Managing rights for the applicationAfter an application has been deployed, you must define rights for all user groupsthat you want to have access to the application.

For an application with an approval hierarchy, each node in your approvalhierarchy has rights assigned to the user groups that exist on the server that hostsyour application. The rights that you assign determine the actions that can beperformed by members of the user groups.

For applications without an approval hierarchy, you can assign a group to havefull access to the application.

Assigning rights for an approver

In a typical application, an approver is assigned either Review or Submit accessrights at consolidation nodes in the approval hierarchy. As an application designer,you need to consider the following additional questions:v Does the approver need to see all levels below the designated consolidation?

If yes, you can control how many hierarchy levels that the user sees by using theReview Depth and View Depth options in the Add Rights window.

v Does the approver need to edit leaf nodes or just submit or reject them?If yes, you can allow an approver to edit leaf nodes by enabling the AllowReviewer Edit option in the Rights window.

When you assign rights for a consolidated node, those rights are applied to all thedescendant nodes of that consolidated node. Descendant nodes include

50 IBM Cognos TM1 Version 10.1.0: TM1 Applications Guide

Page 57: IBM Cognos TM1 Version 10.1.0: TM1 Applications …public.dhe.ibm.com/software/data/cognos/documentation/...Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler, first go to the Cognos TM1 Applications

consolidated and leaf nodes under the consolidated node. Cascading rightsassignments have the following behavior depending on the which access right youapply to the initial consolidated node:v View rights assigned at a consolidated node are also assigned to all descendent

nodes.v Review rights assigned at a consolidated node will set View rights to that

consolidation and Submit rights to all descendants.v Submit rights assigned at a consolidated node will set Submit rights to that

consolidation and Submit rights to all descendants.

The Allow Reviewer Edit option and the Review Depth and View Depth optionsin the Add Rights window overrides the cascading of Review and Submit rightson a consolidated node as follows:v When the Allow Reviewer Edit checkbox is not selected, the application assigns

View access rights only where Submit or Edit rights would have existed.v When you set a number (n) for the Review Depth and View Depth options, the

application will not display nodes below n-levels down from the initial node.You can use these options to keep lower level nodes from appearing for higherlevel managers who need to focus on higher consolidation levels.

Assigning rights for a non-approver

To provide a non-approver user or contributor the ability to perform multi-nodeediting, you must assign at least View rights to the consolidated node. Thisminimum rights assignment makes the consolidated node the starting point fromwhich the user can access, edit, and submit all descendant nodes to which theyhave the rights. Users must take ownership at the consolidated node to use theMulti-Node Edit ability to gain access to all the related leaf nodes. As anapplication designer, you need to consider the following additional questions:1. Does the non-approver require the ability to update more than one node at a

time using the Multi-Node Edit?If yes, consider question 2.If no, you can either assign Edit or Submit rights to individual leaf nodes forthe non-approver.

2. Does the non-approving user need Submit rights to all nodes reporting to aparent consolidated node?If yes, consider question 3.If no, assign View rights to the consolidation, and follow up with assigningSubmit rights to the designated child nodes.

3. Is the non-approving user responsible for submitting the consolidated node?If yes, assign Submit rights to the non-approver at the consolidation node.If no, consider question 4.

4. Is a another user responsible for submitting the consolidated node?If yes, assign Review rights to the non-approver at the consolidation node.
