Greetings Forum Community,

We are looking for your feedback! The seven features below are requests you have raised with us. Please help us prioritize and choose the top 3 of features you would like to see addressed in a future release of Quantrix Modeler by voting in the poll at the top of this thread. [b:2h5gy025][i:2h5gy025]You need to be logged into your MyQuantrix account to vote in the poll.[/b:2h5gy025][/i:2h5gy025]

Thank you in advance for your participation in this poll which will help shape future releases of Quantrix Modeler. The poll will be open until March 3, 2007.

[b:2h5gy025]DataLink Source – Quantrix Model File [/b:2h5gy025]- Develop functionality to allow a Quantrix Model file to be used as a DataLink source. This would allow users to establish a DataLink with matrices residing in a separate model file.

[b:2h5gy025]Smart Time Dimension[/b:2h5gy025] – Develop functionality to support nested time dimensions in a model. For instance, the model could know 4 quarters belong to a year, and 3 months belong to a quarter, eliminating the need to write recurrence formulas between time dimensions.

[b:2h5gy025]Presentation Engine[/b:2h5gy025] – Develop functionality that allows users to link in pieces of Quantrix matrices, views and charts onto a single presentation canvas for using, printing, or exporting the model.

[b:2h5gy025]Develop User and Viewer Application[/b:2h5gy025] – Develop a Viewer version of the application that would allow the user to only view the model. Also develop a User version of the application that would allow the user to modify data and structure, but not the model formulas.

[b:2h5gy025]Solver[/b:2h5gy025] – Develop a solver / goalseek module for Quantrix to solve complex models with variable inputs.

[b:2h5gy025]Scripting[/b:2h5gy025] – Develop a scripting language for the application to allow users to customize Quantrix functionality to their needs.

[b:2h5gy025]XBRL Desktop Support[/b:2h5gy025] – Develop integrated support for the eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) ([url:2h5gy025][/url:2h5gy025]) to allow users to import and export XBRL documents.

Is there a feature you would like to see that is not on this list? Please feel free to post it on this thread.

Thank you for your vote and support of Quantrix!

[b:2h5gy025][i:2h5gy025]Please note:[/b:2h5gy025] This poll will be used to help the Quantrix development team prioritize and schedule features. It does not represent a commitment by Quantrix that it will develop any particular feature in any timeframe.[/i:2h5gy025]


I joined the community a bit late to vote on this, but, as a new user, I find the lack of smart time dimensions quite puzzling — it means that you have to delve into some quite advanced functionality even for quite simple models. The results lack some of the elegance and simplicity I hoped for.

One request, if you do choose to implement this: it would be important to allow for different definitions of the financial year — e.g. starting in April or July.

Cheers, Paul.
