The hierarchy in the planning viewpoint is updated using the subscription from the FSGL hierarchy viewpoint. Users want to input the numbers at the parent level in the planning application during the budget process. To facilitate this in the planning application, we created dummy members with the suffix "_Plan" under each parent member where a user wants to budget.

Now, when we
