PeopleTools 8.54 Feature: ExcelToCI Errors and Warnings Worksheet

Some years ago, I wrote this post on ExcelToCI limitations. One of the limitations I've found annoying in the past was the need to move the mouse over each Warning or Error result cell. It was not just annoying, it actually didn't allow the users to easily work on the different error types and analyze useful information such as the most common error messages, how many rows would go through if they solved a particular issue, etc.

PeopleTools 8.54 has introduced a new worksheet showing all the warning and error messages. The following screenshot provides a clear view on how the information is presented:

From that point on, the users may analyze the messages using Excel dynamic tables, filters, etc. Yet, there is some room for improvement. The most obvious one is to put each particular error in a different Excel row. That would make error analysis much richer.

Let's see how this evolves with the next releases of PeopleTools.
