      Hi Ayan Bishnu thank you very much for this instructive video. Tight-coupling will sure come in handy.

      At 2:05 you mentioned that this new 2208 feature can prevent some earlier workarounds such as copy operators, deletion of non-conforming planning objects; and what is the last workaround you mentioned please? Could you elaborate a bit?

      He talks about Attributes as Key Figure I think. Meaning an Attribute in a Master Data Type, which you fill via CPI with a "1" and which is linked to a Planning Level. This will automatically create a Planning Object when you load Data in the Master Data Type.

      Yes you are right. Thier are different ways like AAK, using CPI with value 1 and even using the advanced copy operator with option as generate planning objects.

      Hi Ayan Bishnu thanks for the video. Do you know if this function is only creating the Planning Object or also initializing the time periods? And for which horizon? Thank you!

      This is exclusively for creation of new planning object and deletion of obsolate planning object. It has nothing to time period initialization. The planning objects are generated for the entire planning horizon
