I have a customer who's trying to do this as well, but their user base and list of roles is large, changing often. Any creative ways on how user to role mapping can be automated? Only thing I can think of is an export of user role and an import to the mapping module.

Great suggestion! @bradley.sisson wrote: There is already an "Idea" out there called Relabel the time dimension; however, it's a little complex given Time doesn't contain properties, etc. Majority of our retail customers use different types of calendars so it's important to distinguish the calendar type by allowing aliases on time so it's customizable to their business. For example, when NIKE sees FY they think Fiscal Years and in Quarters. When they see BY they think Business Year and in Seasons. Two completely different meanings based on the calendars (see below for example) and their aliases / labels. Fiscal Year (FY19) - July - June = Financial Calendar Q1-19 - July August September Q2-19 - October November December Q3-19 - January February March Q4-19 - April May June Business Year (BY18) - January - December = Planning Calendar SP-18 - January February March SU-18 - April May June FA-18 - July August September HO-18 - October November December All we're asking for is an Alias Tab on Time that could be manually maintained to create the necessary aliases. The time-based calc functions and the YTD/YTG functionality would still work as intended because it would be reading the current time-based structure. Below is an example: Current Alias Jan 18 Jan 18 Feb 18 Feb 18 Mar 18 Mar 18 Q1 FY18 SP 18 Apr 18 Apr 18 May 18 May 18 Jun 18 Jun 18 Q2 FY18 SU 18 Jul 18 Jul 18 Aug 18 Aug 18 Sep 18 Sep 18 Q3 FY18 FA 18 Oct 18 Oct 18 Nov 18 Nov 18 Dec 18 Dec 18 Q4 FY18 HO 18 FY18 BY18
