Fall is here!

It’s time to cozy up and enjoy the season with warm drinks, sweaters and comfy socks. While the weather has been getting cooler, we’ve been turning up the heat with some exciting, new features in our Fall 2020 product release.

What’s New in the Fall 2020 Release?

Prophix Analyzer Enhancements

Prophix Analyzer is part of the Prophix for Microsoft® 365 bundle. Open your Prophix data in Excel® and can enjoy the flexibility spreadsheets provide, while also maintaining a secure and controlled environment for your data. Whether you want to improve the performance of your proprietary Excel financial models with a centralized data source, leverage advanced Excel features such as Solver or Analysis ToolPak, or you just prefer the comfort and familiarity of Excel, Prophix Analyzer has you covered.

Edit Layout

In this release, a new feature called Edit Layout makes it easy to change the structure of a Prophix Data View while using Microsoft Excel. This provides Excel users with flexibility previously found only in the Prophix Web Client to simplify the selection of page members and structures without having to start from scratch. This saves time and improves the usability of Excel when working with Prophix data.

Rounding out the enhancements to Prophix Analyzer is a new feature called Select Page Member Display Format. It makes working with Prophix data in Analyzer even more customizable. You can update a date semantic from a Key of “2020M11” to a more natural label name like “November”. This new feature, coupled our new Edit Layout functionality, lets you quickly and easily alter the display of dimension members without creating an entirely new data view.
