I am encountering a problem after I use the copy plan wizard in Forecaster with the status of the facility copied becoming “read only”. There are no input locks on the facility and I have run the recovery and validate database tools to no effect. The only thing that has worked to unlock the facilities is changing the column layout to eliminate any prior periods.
I have three input sets set up in Forecaster: 2015 Budget, 2015 Forecast, 2016 Budget.
The 2015 budget facilities are all “read only” due to their workflow status and use both HR and capital but not revenue . The 2016 Forecast currently consists of 6 months actual and 6 months of forecasted data and does not use the HR tab.
My problem is with the 2016 Budget input set. This input set uses both HR and capital and the original column setup included twelve 2016 budget months and twelve 2015 budget months. For the locked facilities I used the copy plan wizard to copy the 2015 Forecast periods into the 2016 Budget periods. Since many of the Forecaster users use detailed line items in budgeting this saves them a considerable amount of keying.
However after using the copy plan wizard the facilities become “read only” even though the work flow status is “In Progress.” I have had to delete the columns containing the 2015 Budget to unlock the facilities. The 2015 numbers are available in the single row page but my users like to be able to view the current budget year vs. prior budget year on the multi row tab.
Not sure what I am doing wrong.
I have included a copy of the original column setup
Thanks for any help on this.
