We are trying to do salary planning, specifically new hire planning at an employee level. Is it possible to have an account of data type text that users could input into a form, and then build reports in Financial Reporting Studio that would display that text? I know there is an ADM driver that allows Financial Reporting Studio Data Sources to use Planning as a data source, but I wanted to survey for input on if and how well that works.
That's exactly what I did last year. Business wanted to see the Job description (they entered it on the form) of the new hires in a report.
In Workspace, create a Planning datasource and when you create your report, map your report to the Planning datasource.
You just need to login to Workspace > Explore > Tools > Database Connection Manager > New > Select Planning as the Type.
