Did you know there’s an easy way to create buttons that allow your users to switch sheets in IBM Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW)? For example, you’ve created multiple sheets in a PAW book and want to give your users the ability to switch back and forth between the different sheets. One simple way to do this is to create buttons on each sheet that point to other sheets.

To do this, click on the ‘create new button’ option at the top of your PAW window. This creates a new button on the sheet.
