Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel: login or server access may fail in new experience

This issue may occur only when authenticating against a local TM1 database in the Planning Analytics new experience. You will not encounter this issue when authenticating against a local database in Planning Analytics classic or any Planning Analytics on Cloud database.

When attempting to log in to a TM1 database from Planning Analytics for Microsoft Excel, you may receive the following error under certain configurations or conditions: Cannot load the requested view.

To work around this issue, you can dismiss the error and again select the desired TM1 database and continue to log in with a valid user name.

This issue will be corrected in an upcoming release.
