Saving the view

Once you have a view created and customized to your requirements, you can save that view to quickly access it in the future. This view can be saved as the default for the cube. That means that when you double-click on that cube within TM1 Server Explorer, this view would be the initially displayed data.

To save a view from Cube Viewer, you can click on File and then select Save. TM1 will prompt you with the TM1 Save View dialog. This dialog allows you to:

  • Set this view as the cube's default view (only one default view per cube is allowed)

  • Save the view as a private or public view

  • Provide a name for the view

TM1 Server Explorer displays view names beneath the cube with which they are associated. Icons will indicate whether a save view is a public view or a private view.
