In addition to adding meta-data comments to a widget, you can also comment on a specific data point in a table and in a comment widget. A comment on a data point is similar to commenting on a single cell in Microsoft Excel. Data point comments can be made only to planning models or a BPC live model.
In order to add data point comments, you first must enable the Allow Data Point Comments option in the Properties section of the builder panel for the table.
Once the table allows data point comments, you can add one as follows:
- Select the data cell to which you want to add a comment.
- Right-click and then select Add Data Point Comment.
- Enter your comment in the displayed dialog and select Add Comment to submit the comment. The comment is posted as part of a thread, and a colored wedge shape is displayed at the top right of the cell.
Comments in tables can either be in cells with the data or in separate columns. To add a column for comments, right click on a column header and choose Add calculation → Comment → Single/Repeating. As a result, existing comments will be displayed in the column and users can double click cells to add additional comments.
You can view data point comments either directly in the table either in the cell or in a comment column. You can also view the comments in the Comment Widget.
