Alexander Peter already covered what is new this What’s new in Analysis 1.1, edition for Microsoft Office?. That motivated me to apply to be a ramp-up customer. First, I applied, and was approved. Then, next step, install the software. Later, I learned that I installed it wrong. Learn from my mistake below:
In Figure 1, I didn’t click the plus sign to enable 1.1 features. A few days later, I fixed that after reading the Administrator Guide:
In Figure 2, I learned that you need to click the plus sign to Enable 1.1 features.
So what is new via screen shots?
Figure 3 Ribbon Name change
First, the ribbon name has been changed from “Advanced Analysis” to “Analysis”
Figure 4 Insert Analysis View
Insert menu now has Insert Analysis View, part of the interoperability with other client tools coming with BI 4.0.
Figure 5 Edit Conditional Formatting
As Figure 5 shows, you can now edit your Conditional Formatting. In Analysis 1.0 you could only Create or Remove the conditional formatting.
Figure 6 User settings
Under the Settings option, you can click on the “Show Planning Group in Ribbon Toolbar”.
Figure 7 Planning
Figure 7 shows the planning in the toolbar:
- Save Data writes data back to the database
- Recalculate button checks against back end and calculate subtotals
- Back button takes you back to consistent state
The features in planning are enough for its own separate blog.
Figure 8 – Components Tab of Display Panel, Remove Data Before Saving
Figure 8 allows you to remove the data before saving, for security purposes.
Figure 9 Reopening a Workbook
In Figure 9, when you re-open the workbook you are prompted to refresh data to update. After clicking the Refresh All button the system will refresh from the back-end to ensure you have the right authorizations.
Figure 10 Default Workbook
You can also save a default workbook that may contain, for instance, your company’s logo. Under the Settings ribbon, user settings, you tell Analysis the default workbook location.
Then when you open the data sources the default workbook appears.
Figure 11 Default Workbook
Figure 11 is my example of a default workbook.
