Additional Details

  • In addition to Microsoft Excel Comma Separated Values File (.csv) format, you can now choose to download and upload planning data for product allocation in Microsoft Excel Workbook (.xlsx) format. You can use the Download button to download the characteristic value combinations, their descriptions and time periods for a product allocation object, as defined in the Selection Range. You can make changes and adjustments to the planning data directly in Microsoft Excel and then use the Upload button to upload the changed planning data.

  • You can now decide to transfer planned quantities and allocation assignments between characteristic value combinations and corresponding collective characteristic value combinations as follows:
    • From a characteristic value combination to an active, next level collective characteristic value combination, when the former is deactivated or deleted.

    • From the next level collective characteristic value combination to a characteristic value combination, when the latter is activated.

    • From collective characteristic value combinations when more specific, active characteristic value combinations are created.
