Login | Resources | Report Bug | Usability Feedback

Experience the new 2015.4 release in production! As a Beta or Early Adopter participant, you will receive the new enhancements to Adaptive Planning, Consolidation, Discovery and Integration ahead of schedule. For the upcoming release, this means you can access all the new features on December 4th, about 6 weeks earlier than most customers.

The goal of the Beta program is to provide Adaptive Insights customers and partners a sandbox environment for testing and feedback purposes on functionality. The goals of the Early Adopter program include customer/partner feedback as well as working within a production environment with the goal of going live with their implementation.

What’s New in Adaptive Suite 2015.4

ADAPTIVE PLANNING

Multiple Versions on Sheets Learn more here

In the first release of multiple versions on sheets, you can compare up to three versions directly on standard sheets. Users can view the current version, then select up to two additional versions to display for each month on the sheet. Versions can also be time shifted to compare prior year values. Future releases will add functionality like variance columns and YTD calculations.

Improved Workflow, Edit User Page, and General Ledger Account Administration

We redesigned the Workflow, Edit User, and general ledger account administration pages with a cleaner look that no longer requires the use of Java applets, improving page load times.

Calculation Performance Engine Enhancements

The responsiveness of calculations on sheets and reports is better. We now only compute calculations for time periods set in the sheet display options. Now we also provide version administrators an option to preserve formula values in a locked version. This means that locked versions are not recalculated, also saving calculation time.

API to Create and Update the Organization Structure and Adaptive Planning Dimensions

The new API allows developers to create a solution to automate adding and updating levels and dimensions in Adaptive Planning from other systems. For example, if a new department is added to the organization structure in your ERP system, developers can create a solution to automate adding that level or updating properties of that level in Adaptive. The same concept also applies to dimensions and dimension values.

ADAPTIVE DISCOVERY

Discovery further empowers the business analyst with self-service and dashboard development with the following enhancements including the following:

  • Expanded end user control of data and chart setting editor for Bar Charts
  • Online Help for Adaptive Discovery Enterprise

ADAPTIVE CONSOLIDATION

Journal Entry Usability Enhancements

Rather than returning to the Journal Entry List page to add multiple journal entries in a single session, a “New” button has been added to the edit page to expedite the creation of multiple entries. Sort is also now available from the Journal Entry List page to quickly and easily locate specific journal entry values, like sorting by entry date.

Rename Eliminations Matching Viewer

The Eliminations Matching Viewer from the Consolidation menu has been renamed Intercompany Eliminations to align with industry standard terminology and make the user experience more intuitive.
