You have a number of options for inputting data into your Concerto models including;
- Manual Data Entry
- Datasource Integration
Which option is best for you will change depending on the structural requirements and context of a model. To start out, we recommend using Manual Data Entry.
You can prepare a metric/s for Manual Data Entry by ensuring the following configurations are enabled from within the Modeller;
- Mapping & Calculation tab > Data & Calculation section > Population > select Manual Data Entry
- Traffic Lighting & Simulation tab > Simulation section > Simulation Mode > select Allowed
You have the ability to determine the level at which you wish users to be able to manually enter in data for your model, down to a per metric per key figure basis.
- *Traffic Lighting & Simulation tab > Worksheet section > Worksheet Display > toggle Show in worksheet
This one is not an absolute necessity, although if you wish to enter in data from within the Worksheet, then you will want to toggle this config on for designated metrics.
Now you are ready to manually enter in data!
