User Authorization: Dimension Member In Entry And Approval

Dear Friends

I have created above template and User PIPADMIN is having authorization for Business Development(Intl.) member of dimension dept.

Is it possible to filter Business Development(Domestic) member records from the above template.

Once PIPADMIN is opened the template only 2 records or entries should appear in template(Measures of Dept=Business Development(Intl).

Pl. advise.

Note: I know alternate to create a template with only 2 entries and assign that template to PIPADMIN so that he can have only 2 entries.

Overall , Is there any provision in E & A to have Dimension member level authorization?

    You don't filter out, you decide which data elements to include in each metric set!

    For example you could allocate Metric set 1 to user 1 to provide the actuals for Business Development (Domestic), Metric set 2 for User 2 for the actuals for Business Development (International), Metric set 3 for user 3 for the Targets for Business Development (Domestic) and metric set 4 for user 4 for the targets for Business Development (International) etc

    When setting up your metric sets simply check the elements you require to be in that metric set. The Metric sets can contain any mix of data elements from any number of metrics provided they have the same dimensionality and periodicity.

    The only proviso is that you cannot have more than 500 selections in a metric set (and in this instance the actual and target for the same element count as 1 selection) ie 500 rows on your form. And if you are thinking of having more than 500 then you should think again and break them down into smaller sets as the likelihood of generating human error with that number of elements increases sharply! 😀

    • Sri,

      In IT anything is possible if you have no limits on time and money in customisation.

      But E&A was designed in the way it is to provide a simple to set up method to define separate sets of data elements to match the needs of different users.

      What you describe is a chargeable customisation that adds complexity to replace a simple system that provides the same function.
