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]http://www.xbrl.org[/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 would like to be able to “globally” set model variables to 0 (instead of default: empty). Also, some formulae relate to almost every matrix in my model.
For example I have a model with 14 matrices and 175 formula. Of these 175 formula, 4 get repeated in about 10 matrices:
– Diff = Actual – Budget
– Diff% = (Actual-Budget)/Budget
– Cumulative:Month = Period:Month
– Cumulative = Cumulative:Month[PREV]+Cumulative:Month[THIS]
Hence, the global formula feature would allow for deletion of (10-1)*4=36 formulas.
For the 4 matrices that the 4 formulae do not apply to one would need a possibility to exclude them. Maybe one could “drag” the “global formula container” onto a matrix if it applies to that matrix (similar to the way one can drag a categorie). Then the first line in the formula area of that matrix would read: “global formulas apply”.
Mind you, as I am new to Quantrix it maybe that something for global definitions is available allready and I haven’t discovered it.
