Adding a new Dimension to your Cube couldn't be easier; navigate to your Cube Portal and select the Dimensions page to get started.
Before we dive in - let's make sure this is the right how-to for you:
- Looking to add a top-level dimension? Contact your CSM.
- Are you mapping new source data and need to add a dimension? There's a better way.
Now that you know you're in the right place, let's add a new dimension!
1. Click in the top-right section of the Dimensions page
2. Fill out the following details:
- Name: must be unique
- Parent: determines where the dimension member lives in the hierarchy
Optional fields include:
- Account Number: input the GL Account Number
- Time Rollup Type: determines how months are summarized (sum, balance, or average)
- Description: input a brief description of the associated dimension
- Tags: include this dimension in an existing tag
Or, under Sources, you can create a dimension using a Formula.
3. Once you've added the designated fields, select and you'll receive a confirmation message at the bottom right of the screen
And your dimension is now added! Some important things to note:
- As dimensions are added, team members who have access to their parent dimension will automatically have access to any new ones.
