Actions/processes to be triggered by boolean line items in the model


This ideas comes from the need for many of my clients which use the classic engine to use concatenated/combination lists to overcome sparsity issues.

Whenever, a new combination of dimensions used either in actuals/budget/forecast is used an action can be triggered to run which automatically creates the combination list so the new data can be incorporated into any consolidation.

Currently, we create a warning that there is a discrepancy and the client runs the action via a button on the dashboard/page to reconcile the consolidation. Often clients forget to run the action and if a valid combination does not already exist the entry will not correctly flow through to the consolidation.

Allowing an auto run of actions based on some kind model event will reduce this risk.
