The Adaptive Suite 2018.1 release enables you and your teams to work faster and smarter with enhanced visual analytics, expanded consolidation features, and integration capabilities that enrich your Adaptive Suite data.
Adaptive Planning and Adaptive Reporting
New filtering options in Excel help you quickly find the data you’re looking for in modeled sheets and manage large modeled sheets that include multiple rows with ease.
Keep up to three Adaptive Office Connect workbooks open at once without having to save or close another one.
After you modify your view of sheets, return to your original view with one click.
Give your currencies unique names and descriptions, and define the associated exchange rate. This improves your ability to consolidate and plan across multiple currencies with more flexibility and greater precision. Use different rate sets for the same currency when required, for example.
Use Global Dashboard Time to apply the same time settings to all dashboards in a perspective with a couple of clicks. Pin and unpin a chart from a perspective-level time setting to see it with a different time setting. Compare your metrics and KPIs across different time periods. Time can be displayed in any increment that is defined in your planning calendar, whether that’s monthly, weekly, or daily.
View your top and bottom performers for any data set. Sort the data in ascending and descending order when either viewing or editing a chart. And quickly see your top or bottom performers by filtering the sorted data.
Immediately see any data that is outside the norm with conditional formatting on charts.
Create ad-hoc calculations on charts. For example, if your chart displays inventory data, create a metric for inventory turns or for employee turnover if your chart has HR data.
Enter initial balances in multiple currencies with currency-tagged splits. This eliminates the need to use multiple historical rates to compute initial balances in each currency.
You can now submit workflow for actuals data. This is useful for customers that use Adaptive Consolidation, but will also be available to all AdaptiveSuite customers.
Keep your dimensions always in sync with your underlying data sources. The new dimension bulk update API and dimension metadata loader in Adaptive Integration make it easy for automating updates to your dimension values and dimension hierarchy.
