Body of text—The text can be formatted to include, bold, italics, underline, color, left, right,
center and justify alignment, indent, and bullet lists with hanging indent.
The annotation creator can apply access control and permission options to groups or users.
Annotations can be added to a single value, a row or column, or a range of rows and columns.
A warning icon is displayed when a report containing an annotation is deleted.
A designer can add text cells or text objects to a report and apply an Annotation function that
will reference specific annotations or annotation elements in a grid. This is done through
Financial Reporting Studio. See the Oracle Hyperion Financial Reporting Studio User’s Guide.
In Annotation Manage, administrators can search and access annotations across the
environment, modify context associated with a context, modify properties, including metadata,
and remove annotations from the system. See the Oracle Enterprise Performance Management
Workspace Administrator’s Guide.
Showing and Hiding Annotations
Use the View menu to show or hide annotations. To view annotations, select a report, then select
View, and then Show Annotation. To hide annotations, select a report, then select View, and
then Hide Annotations.
Annotations can be attached to a report object, grid object (including formula cells), text object,
chart object, and image object, and can reference a full or partial POV. You create a new
annotation in the New Annotation dialog box. Three tabs in the New Annotation dialog box
allow you to define the annotation:
Annotation tab — capture the title, description and a predefined category. You can format
the Description text by specifying font and font size, bullets, numbering, indentation, color,
justification and undo and redo.
Context tab — capture Object and Dimension information. Object information can be a
data source or any object on the report. For example:
a data source — the annotation is attached to any Financial Reporting report using the
specified data source.
Grid: data source — the annotation is attached to the specified grid and data source.
Text, Chart, or Grid — the annotation is attached the specified object with no
dimensions on the object.
Attachments tab — Link attachments to an annotation. Attachments can be a file on your
local drive, any object in the repository, or a URL.
To create an annotation
Right–click on any report object and select New Annotation. The New Annotation dialog box is displayed.
