IBM Planning Analytics Tips: Hiding Dimensions in Planning Analytics Workspace

Did you know that you don’t have to show all of your dimensions during an ad-hoc query in IBM Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW)?

TM1 cube views and formulas require a reference to every dimension within the cube. While all of these dimensions have a use within your cube, they are not always needed for your reports, templates and ad-hoc querying. PAW books allow you to hide dimensions during ad-hoc browses. This is done by simply dragging the dimension off the screen.

The following view was originally created to show all dimensions:

However, if this view is going to be used as a planning template and will only utilize the scenario called “Plan” then the dimension can be hidden by simply dragging it onto the three dots at the top right corner of the screen.

The dimension no longer appears on the screen.
