Is there a batch functionality for journals?

Answer There is currently no batch functionality for journals. A workaround is to run a BR that loops through all the journals for a specific time period and post each one. Source: Office Hours 2020-04-09 Partner Enablement

Can you give an example of the best way to sum a row from a cube view? For example, if I add two rows to a cube view, one with a selection of members, how do I make the second row a custom sum of the first?

Question: Is there an option to clear non-calculated data in a “bulk” (as known from hs.clear) other than looping through the data buffer and use “SetDataCell” (which has a higher performance impact)? The “ClearCalculatedData“ is not impacting input/imported data – right?

Answer Non-calculated data can be cleared outside of rules From Workflow: From Data Management Jobs: However, there is no equivalent of hs.clear to clear non-calculated data within OneStream (by design…because it “breaks” the audit trail inherent in ...

Question: Is it possible to run an automated consolidation task every hour using only the task manager to set everything up (i.e., without business rules/windows scheduler/PowerShell)? And, if it is possible, what are the steps to get there?
