While doing Data Entry it is important for the user to know what type of information the different cells holds. One area of making this self explanatory is to use color coding. For instance having all summation accounts in a specific color. By doing this there is no confusion about why a cell is locked and cannot be updated. Today all summation account are always grey.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||ALL users reporting vi Controller Web would benefit from this.|
How should it work?
The best solution would be to make use of the colors as defined in the Controller Classic Layout. If that is not possible there should be a way of defining the colors of these accounts directly in Controller Web.
|Priority Justification||Controller Web is about usability. This "small" change would make a big difference.|
|Client Name||All Customers using Controller Web|
