What's New in SAS Strategy Management 5.6
SAS Strategy Management 5.6 provides the following features and other improvements:
- Improved integration with the SAS Visual Analytics home page. From the SAS Visual Analytics home page, you can now select a data-entry form and open its portlet in order to work with the form. You can also make mobile reports available on the home page.
- Improvements to the Import Option feature. This feature provides a new configuration option that imports elements, their non-metric attributes, and their period types. You can also specify the start and end dates for elements in a configuration, create relationships during an import by associating element types, and import element descriptions. When newly created elements meet certain criteria, you can create a link between them.
- New override option in the Manage Rules feature. This feature provides an option that enables users to enter a value that does not conform to the rule's restrictions. Although a warning appears in the affected data-entry form, users can save and submit the form even though the input fails.
- New way to create SAS Strategy Management reports for Microsoft Office. SAS Strategy Management provides a new way to create reports that you can view in Microsoft Office when SAS Add-in for Microsoft Office is installed. This feature replaces the Save As SAS ROM Report option in the SAS Strategy Management Builder.
- Improvements to the Create Mobile Reports feature. The Create Mobile Reports feature of the enhanced SAS Strategy Management portlet enables you to specify layout options that are optimized for the SAS Mobile BI app.
- New MIXPER formula function. SAS Strategy Management provides a new formula function that returns a list of values from a time period that is different from another time period.
