Cast your Vote for new Features
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]
One of the most common problems I find with financial modeling is trying to get realistic assumptions (of course if we could predict the future this would not be a problem!). The best program that I know that does this effectively is :Crystalball: (an excel overlay). This software allows the user to define upper and lower limits and the type of statistical distribution to each assumption. The model is then ‘run’ and the final average/median result (eg Profit) is determined – with it’s statistical distribution & sensitivity analysis. I know this is a huge ask, but I believe it would really be a major advantage to quantrix.
