Executive View

We have enhanced the Executive View to facilitate easier sharing of reports with key decision-makers within our clients' organizations. Including new features aimed at enabling Analysts to manage these Views with greater efficiency.

View Management Enhancements

Analysts can now access a complete list of Published Views within a Study by navigating to the 'Views Tab' on the Overview page.

All listed Views are available to any Analyst with access to the Study within the Tenant

By clicking on a View name in the View management grid, Analysts can open that View in a new browser tab.

Editing and duplicating Views is straightforward, with options for both available directly within the View management grid.

Command Line Interface (CLI) Developments

Analysts now have the capability to publish Views alongside Solution reports using specific CLI commands.

Default User Settings

When an Analyst creates a new View, they are automatically included in the users list. This allows them to preview the View as it would appear in the Executive View, ensuring it meets the needs of the executives.

Excel Add-in

The Excel Add-in now features an improved Template Builder interface that enables users to interactively construct and modify templates for synchronizing input database properties from their PLEXOS Cloud studies directly within an Excel workbook.

Users can browse the Property Tree to access the System and Simulation classes, selecting the desired Attributes, Properties and Memberships to synchronize in the workbook.

Those who are already familiar with PLEXOS will recognize the Property Tree from the PLEXOS Desktop application and will intuitively know where to locate the classes and properties. The Template Builder simplifies the process of creating and editing Input Data synchronization templates, eliminating the need to remember property names. This user-friendly tool allows for quicker template creation, reduces the risk of input errors, and requires only a few clicks to operate.
