How to add a new scenario as an import option?
You want to import your source data into a new scenario, but it does not appear as an alternative in the "scenario" import drawer? - this is due to the "write protection."
Indeed, only scenarios using "Actuals" Write Protection are allowed for imports, and they are indicated by a padlock icon in your scenario Dimension page.
Take the following example: only two scenarios: "Imported Actuals" and "Actual" appear as import options; however, we want to import to another scenario named "Allocated Actuals" highlighted in red above.
Therefore, to add a new scenario as an import option, follow the steps below:
- Navigate to the Dimension page under the "Scenario" tab.
- Click on the three dots on the right.
- Select “Edit Dimension”.
- Expand "Write Protection".
- Select "Actuals" and Save Dimension.
If the above steps aren't clear, you can watch this gif below!
