One of the great features in HFM is the ability to create web data forms in which users can enter data directly, without the need for account mappings, journals, or Smart View sheets. These web data forms can be designed in ways that provide very tight security and control over the data that users can enter into HFM. At the same time, the web data forms can be formatted to be very user-friendly and intuitive, so that users find the process simple and easy to follow.
On September 15, you will learn about the pros and cons of using HFM web data forms versus other methods of getting data into HFM, such as data loads, journals, Smart View, and data grids. We will talk about the considerations for each method and why web data forms may or may not be the right choice for various types of data. We will also discuss ways in which data entered via web data forms can be ‘protected’ during iterative trial balance data loads, so that the data entered via web data forms is not erased when loading a trial balance data file in ‘Replace’ mode.
During this webinar, you will also learn some of the more advanced design, formatting, and functions for web data forms, including:
- Dimension / member overrides
- Colors / fonts / general formatting
- Dynamic row expansion
- Exporting / importing from Excel
- Opening web data forms in Smart View
