Keystroke Steps


Automatic ranking of investments is achieved by selecting the desired criteria based on the selected column set.

After you automatically rank investments, they are displayed on the Rank view according to the ranking defined by your set of criteria. That ranking is also reflected on other views as you change investment approval status or balance capacity with demand within the relevant scenario.

  1. From the Investment and Capacity Management, Planning Portfolio tile, select 1aaaaa.TEMP Pivot Icon.png: Rank.
  2. Confirm that you are viewing the correct portfolio, scenario, and column set.
  3. Select the 4aa. Icon Rank.png button on the top right portion of the screen (Figure 1) (1).
  4. Select Add Criteria (2). New investments or unranked investments are displayed at the top of this list with no rank numbers (3).
  5. Use the dropdown to select a value for the first box. These values will vary based on the column set you are viewing and include all columns that are numerically rankable. For example, Investment Approval is not included, because it is not a rankable column.
