Additional Information
Details of the attributes, data types and parameters available for each report dimension;
  • X Axis – The attributes available for use on the X axis include categorical dimensions such as strategy alternate structures, SBS hierarchy parent values, strategy numerical fields and strategy date based fields, such as actual/Scheduled finish date. The values will be plotted based on the chronology, size or attribute place (position in the alternate structure definition). 
  • Y Axis – strategy numerical fields are available for selection in the Y-axis parameter. Typical data points to use are a prioritization or risk scoring attribute (field). Bubble Size – Financial Value; the z axis shows data from the financial plan.

    The following parameters are used to determine what is shown:
    • Currency; if Planview Enterprise is configured to support multi-currency then this parameter allows selection of the currency to display the financial values in. Standard currency conversions are used.
    • Working Version; a single active financial plan version can be selected. This defaults to the Version Marked as Forecast.
    • Financial Measure; financial planning can be used to store financial, effort and unit data. Only one measure type can be selected, to ensure that different data types are not aggregated.
    • Financial Category; selections are either “Cost” or “Revenue/Benefit”. These are determined by the financial management account configuration.
    • Account Types; Capital/Expense/Labor; based on the financial management account configuration, this parameter allows further filtering of the financial data that is aggregated for the Y Axis.
    • Accounts; this list is dynamically built based on the prior selections and shows the hierarchy of all accounts configured in the model that fit the Category and Account Type selections.
    • Max Line Attributes; this determines how the data is displayed in the table, specifically how many line attributes
Color Attribute; alternate structures that have been defined with Charting Colors are available for selection as the bubble color. Show Bubble Labels; this determines whether labels are shown for the bubbles for on-screen viewing of the report, export of the report or not at all. Note, when viewed on screen, each bubble has a mouse over hover tool tip that shows the values associated with each bubble.
