data slice in Web for bps


Our planning process is focused on project elements.

Each user have to plan several project for 10 years (for each period).

Each user selects a closing period as he can generate himself a plan version (eg : 09/2004 which allows a copy of actual data from 01/2000 to 08/2004 and plan data from 09/2004 to 12/2010).

Unfortunately, this closing date is different for each user and we can't determine a data slice in the layout (users should not change data for the actual periods).

Selection in the layout (header = year with a variable, data column = period 1 to 12).

Do you know a way to lock data for the actual period knowing that it's different for each user ? I was told that it could be possible to desactivate some cells (only display) in the web interface thanks to a exit but I don't know how.

thanks for your help.

    Hello Boujema,

    You could use a data slice that contains a user defined variable for the period. Now when the user selects a closing period you can set this variable (e.g. using a planning function type Exit) in such a way that for the current user the data is locked.
