RFE 85715 The TM1 Action buttons & ribbon buttons should not recalculate other sheets or books

Post by Steve Rowe » Tue Mar 22, 2016 2:40 pm

Action buttons in Perspectives recalculate All worksheets in All open workbooks rather than recalculating just the current sheet as documented in the on-line and PDF documents and the on-screen text.

After a long PMR trail (since the 1st week in Jan) with IBM they have come back and confirmed the issue but have said that the functionality is correct and the documentation & GUI are wrong. Obviously very frustrating when they pull the "documentation is wrong / illogical behaviour is correct" trick, this should be treated as a defect.

See the below URL for a direct link to the RFE:

Please vote if you can as the current set-up makes action buttons pretty inefficient.

Thank-you!

Voted (after getting through the usual Internal Server Error; are they ever going to fix that??). I've also added it to my watchlist, since that apparently seems to matter in the rankings of requests. Currently it stands at 5 votes and 2 watchlists.
