Version formula with valid Circular Reference error does not appear only until a new module with Version as a dimension is created
|Description of the enhancement required||It would be useful to have a preventive check that would prevent Version formula with valid Circular Reference to be saved during initial setup of the model prior to any new module creations.|
|An example of the enhancement:||When creating a new model from scratch, when the model builder edits Version Settings and tries to enter a circular formula (ie. "Actual - Forecast") in the Forecast Line Item, it should not allow any Circular formula to be saved.
Enhancement request is to throw a valid Circular Reference error immediately, rather than wait till the moment a new module is created with Versions as a dimension.
|A story for why they want the enhancement, (how would it help their business process)||The consequence of the mistake can only be felt afterwards. We’re basically allowing someone to make a mistake that would prevent the model from using Versions entirely.
It’s like if Excel had a button that, if pressed, stopped you from creating new tabs. Letting that button exist/be pressed is confusing from a product standpoint because creating additional tabs in Excel (creating modules using Versions) is basic functionality
