Response to Sorry, no easy solution

BTW, everywhere I've worked with the Add-In during the first 15 years of my Essbase career, power users came out of the woodwork, which is awesome.

I've worked with Smart View for the last 8 years (at my last three organizations), and have had a really hard time developing power users. I've been at this organization for five years, and I have three power users.. me, and two guys that sit in financial reporting (the application owners). That's it.

Everyone else struggles with the tool. Most can't even create adhocs from scratch, they can only refresh existing templates, and I don't think it's because they aren't smart people, or aren't receiving adequate training. I think it's because the tool is difficult to use.

So you have that to look forward to.
