If you’ve ever avoided using Info Explorer (the cube) because you didn’t want to break it, this video on cube fundamentals is for you.
This fun tutorial is for anyone who can identify with this client’s comment:
“I have a lot of tech savvy people in the office who avoided using the cube. I think they were afraid they would screw up the system somehow and were afraid to explore its boundaries. It wasn’t until we sat down and tried different actions and analyzed the results that they really started to understand.”
Cube fundamentals include:
- understanding facts and dimensions
- dragging dimensions to see data recalculate
- being aware of filters and pre-filters
- using the “refresh” button to pull fresh data from the database
There is so much you can do with these cubes. They are more than static reports- they offer a world of information that you can group and filter in powerful ways. Watch this video and give yourself the permission to explore.
