BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE July 2011 Enhancements
NEW RELEASE CYCLE PROCESS To better meet your needs, we have replaced our quarterly release cycle with a process called “agile development” which allows us to release enhancements as soon as they are developed and tested.
ENHANCEMENTS Thomson ONE Spreadsheet Link – functionality and content enhancementsPages 4 - 7 Deal Analytics enhancements – for Thomson ONE Corporate Development clients onlyPages 8 - 10 New forecast measuresPage 11
SPREADSHEET LINK: Enhancements to streamline your workflow Export from Microsoft Excel to PowerPoint or Word and then manage your links and refresh the content from either Excel or the target application. Leverage additional keyboard shortcuts (see slide 6 for the list) Input multiple expressions into a TF function call. If you know the codes for your function calls, you can now input multiple ones without needing to select them individually from Data Item Lookup. Separate multiple expressions and function calls with semi-colons. Example: If you send your Spreadsheet Link calls to a proxy server and you use the same user name and password for your proxy server as for your Windows login, synch the information for a seamless login by selecting “Use Windows credentials for proxy authentication “
SPREADSHEET LINK: Enhancements to streamline your workflow When you send a request to a web server, the header is typically sent first and then the server responds with a "100 Continue“ indicating it is ready for the body of the request. If your proxy does not allow “100 Continue” functionality, select the Allow 'HTTP 100: continue' responses options and Spreadsheet Link can send the entire request at once. Clear your selections in Identifier Lookup, Screen Builder, Constituent Lookup, Data Items, their categories, and parameters by clicking on the Clear Meta Data Cache button on the Options> Updates page If you encounter an error, easily send your log file to our consulting team for review. Select Mail Logs from the bottom left of the Options page, click the arrow and click Mail information Log to open an e-mail with your log files attached. Or click Open Logs Folder to view the log files yourself. Access Spreadsheet Link in Japanese:
