Selecting the Add Mode within Planning Application Properties

There are two different modes for adding new members in the Smart View grid:

The Dimension Editor Mode requires that users perform a Refresh each time a member is added to a dimension but usually offers faster performance than the Submit without Refresh Mode. Also, if the Dimension Editor Mode is used, new members are marked with an asterisk or star (*) in the grid after you perform the Refresh. The Submit without Refresh Mode does not require a Refresh but is generally slower in performance and does not mark new members.

Note:

By default, new members are marked with an asterisk or star (*) in the grid after you perform the Refresh. You can use a different sign by adding SMART_VIEW_DIMENSION_EDITOR_NEW_MEMBER_SUFFIX in Planning Application Properties.

The specific mode employed is controlled by the Smart View administrator. The mode choice is determined in Planning Application Properties.

  To select the mode in Planning Application Properties by which members are added in the Smart View grid:

  1. Log on to EPM Workspace and access Planning.

    (See Logging On to EPM Workspace and Accessing Planning.)

  2. Access the Planning Web UI Application Properties page.

  3. Set the value of SMART_VIEW_DIMENSION_EDITOR_PARITY_MODE to “False”.

    False” is the default value of SMART_VIEW_DIMENSION_EDITOR_PARITY_MODE. If the value is changed to “True”, the mode is Submit without Refresh.

  4. Log out of Planning.

  5. Log back into Planning.

    Note:

    It is not necessary to restart the Planning server after changing the value of SMART_VIEW_DIMENSION_EDITOR_PARITY_MODE; however, you must log out and then log in again for the change to take effect.
