Smart View is the Microsoft Office interface to Planning, where users can perform their planning and forecasting activities. Smart View also enables users to work offline in disconnect mode. They can analyze Planning data in Microsoft Outlook, Excel, Word, and PowerPoint. Ad hoc grids in Smart View enable Planning users to personalize focused data slices that they frequently access and share them with others through Smart View or Planning. See the “Working with Ad Hoc Grids” chapter in the Oracle Hyperion Planning User's Guide and the Oracle Hyperion Smart View for Office User's Guide.
