    Blog – What is new for Planning Analytics Workspace v65 (PAW65)

     

    Use the Modeling workbench to create and maintain your model (beta)

     

    The modeling workbench introduced in IBM Planning Analytics 2.0.64 remains available as a beta feature in 2.0.65. You can now open the modeling workbench from the user interface; you no longer need to enter a URL to the modeling perspective in your Planning Analytics Workspace environment. To create a new workbench, click the Home menu , then click New > Workbench

     

    See the updated view name when you save a view to the server

    When you save a view by using the Save to server option, the new view name is displayed in the view details box. In previous versions of the product, the old view name was displayed here when the view was saved to the server under a different name.

     

    Assign multiple data items per slot in a visualization

    You can assign multiple data items to a single slot in a visualization.

    For example, in the following screen capture, the Model and Region dimensions are mapped to the Bars field.

     

    Create calculations for named sets

    If a dimension includes named sets, you can create a calculation that is based on the set members.

     

    Minor changes to the procedures for creating applications and plans

    The user interface and procedures for creating plans and applications have been updated to simplify the creation and editing process. The capabilities of plans and applications remain unchanged.

     

    Install Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel with a new Excel add-in 

     

    You can now install and launch Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel by using the Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel add-in.


    In previous versions of Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel, the installation was performed with a bundled installer. Starting in Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel version 2.0.65, users can install and launch Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel with the Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel add-in.


    The new add-in installation method allows users to quickly upgrade multiple instances of Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel without having to run an installer for each instance or uninstall the previous version of Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel.

    Hi Paul,  Not sure if you are ahead of the game re 2.0.65 but those links don't work for (at least for me for this morning).
    The change to the install method of Pafe looks very interesting, is this going to be availble on Prem as well and do you have more detail on this?

    Cheers,

    Another question on the update on PAfE utility, will it require Admin access to the users machine ? Currently everytime we release updats we have to go through an external team to get it packaged up, as users have no admin access at all to their machine. Therefore I'm concerned it would not work for us any how.

     

    Kind regards
