Currently, our company has started using special characters such for accounts as we have run out of numbers. These new accounts with numbers and special characters (like $) can not be entered into Controller.
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Everyone that uses Planning Analytics as the account codes are pushed over from FAP into Planning Analytics.|
How should it work?
1.) Allow special characters such as $ be allowed in the account code field
3.) Currently, we are replacing the $ with an '_' and having a lookup file so that our accountants can lookup the actual account name since the original account name can't be stored in Controller.
|Priority Justification||We are not able to store the original account name into the account code field because of special characters. We will continue to have more of these in the future.|
