  • 4. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Ever Wonder What Would Happen If… ● Changed the OrgByPeriod option? ● Added a dimension? ● Changed an account’s Line Item Detail option? ● Disabled Allow Adjs for an entity? ● Changed the alias of a custom dimension?
  • 5. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Changed the OrgByPeriod option? ● Organization By Period allows for changing entity hierarchy relationships ● Purpose is to preserve the consolidated parent results while allowing for varying methods per period ● Does not impact any other dimension ● Periodic consolidation is central to this ● Zero View settings for derived data must be Periodic ● [Active] account ● Ownership management
  • 6. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Enable Org By Period on Existing App ● Start with Comma4Dim ● App settings ● Default value for Active: “1” ● By default, all children are active for all of their parents for all time when they are added to the application ● Org By Period Application: Disabled ● Default consolidation rules ● Scenario settings ● Most common settings for Actual
  • 7. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Entity Structure ● Start with Ranzal under United States ● Typical attributes
  • 8. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Simple Data set ● Revenue ● Accounts Receivable
  • 9. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Q1 Ranzal Consolidates to United States
  • 10. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal March 1 Ranzal Moves to Europe ● Non-OrgByPeriod entity move ● Simple click and drag, re-load Fastest way from California to Spain
  • 11. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Consolidate All With Data ● … but wait! ● United States should reflect the amounts for periods during which Ranzal was a child ● …and Europe should not consolidate January and February
  • 12. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Ranzal Must Roll up to Both Parent Entities ● Metadata will show a superset of all entity relationships ● How do I control this?
  • 13. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Ownership Management ● Select the parent entity in the point of view ● Rows show its children ● Set Ranzal Active = Yes for United States in January and February ● Set Ranzal Active = No for United States in March ● And the reverse for Europe ● Value is balance recurring: it will stay Yes/No until it changes ● Does not carry from year to year
  • 14. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Information Can be Loaded ● System accounts are stored in the [None] value of parent entities
  • 15. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Anatomy of Data File ● “Active” for United States does not appear ● since the App Settings default is Active ● “0” indicates “No (not active)” ● “1’ re-establishes the Active status
  • 16. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Back to that Consolidation ● Must “Consolidate All With Data” after ownership changes ● HFM ignores the [Active] flag until you enable OrgByPeriod in the App Settings
  • 17. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Enable Org By Period ● And Consolidate All With Data ● Getting closer ● I don’t like YTD results: Periodic got reversed out?
  • 18. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Zero View Settings ● Can I change this? ● Really wanted “Periodic” ● Not without rebuilding the scenario – all data and journals ● Refer to “What would happen if I did…in HFM” from Kscope 2012 Zero emissions
  • 19. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal ● If I have an amount in February and then suppress a zero for March, what does that mean? ● Implies the zero was March periodic activity ● Need to load Periodic ● Or else load zeroes ● Don’t fill the database with zeros! Data Load Method ● Hmm. That changes the FDM integrations ● And the journals. ● I really need to think this through…
  • 20. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal If I Want Org By Period in the Future ● Configure the scenario like this: ● Configure the data integration process to load Periodic ● No effect on the balance sheet – only flows ● Then can enable the OrgByPeriod app setting later if needed Most companies won’t like this because we want to load Actuals YTD! … to capture prior period adjustments…
  • 21. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Added a dimension? ● When we last saw our hero in New Orleans, he showed us how to add a dimension to an HFM application ● But what would happen to: ● Calc Manager? ● Smart View?
  • 22. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Application currently has Custom1..4 ● Dimensions migrated from earlier release ● With no alias, they are: ● Dimension names if you had an alias prior to 11.1.2.2 ● Another topic entirely…
  • 23. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Smart View ● Ad Hoc ● Functions HsGetValue function has dimensions I put there Other dimensions defined in POV Manager Dimensions in Rows & Columns or in POV bar
  • 24. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Calc Manager Objects ● Only Data Range matters ● All other objects are dimension independent ● Custom dimensions are hard coded ● These will break if you rename a custom ● Or migrate to an app with different customs Dimension names are embedded in Data Range
  • 25. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Add a “Myths” dimension ● Fifth dimension Remember these folks from the Rock Opera?
  • 26. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Smart View ● I didn’t change any Functions ● POV manager added Myths dimensions ● Now in background POV for everyone ● Ad Hoc ● POV bar added Myths dimension as well ● Both default to [None]
  • 27. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Calc Manager? ● Existing rules don’t change ● I deployed again, no errors ● Extracted in classic mode, no changes ● What about functions that use the full POV? ● GetCell, GetCellNoData, GetCellRealData, SetDataWithPOV All use [None] when not specified ● Hs.EXP applies equally to all members of new dimension ● Add a new data range object ● Then the new dimension appears
  • 28. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Changed an account’s Line Item Detail option? ● Add two sample accounts: Enabled ● Enable for scenario too
  • 29. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Enter Line Items ● This is entered using the scenario’s Default View ● … ties in with the Org By Period discussion
  • 30. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Disable (and Enable) Line Item Detail ● Change Account settings ● Load in Replace mode ● Does not accept this change ● Skip integrity? ● … that worked ● Line items? Still there ● Summary aggregation? YEP ● I can overwrite these Do NOT try this at home!!!
  • 31. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal ● Load back original metadata ● Still can’t do this without disabling Check Integrity ● Yes, line item detail is still there ● Though I overwrote some while it was switched Can I get the line items back?
  • 32. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Disabled Allow Adjs for an entity? ● Post a journal ● Disable Allow Adjs for RanzalAdj entity ● Load this ● With “check integrity” enabled ● Can’t proceed
  • 33. Copyright ©2014 Chris Barbieri, Edgewater Ranzal Skip Integrity Check ● What if I skipped that check? ● Journal entry is still there! Confirmed: You can’t herd cats ● But then I tried to unpost it
