Hyperion Financial Reporting - PSU 704 and Desktop Client News

With Hyperion Financial Reporting PSU, which was released on December 20, 2016, came multiple updates for the web studio:

Financial Reporting Web Studio enhancements to achievemore parity with the Windows Studio functionality:
•   Conditional formatting and suppression 
•   Auto-Calculation
•   Ability to Save Objects
•   Related Content
•   Row/Column templates

Also, Oracle announced in the patch the planned date for parity with the Windows desktop client and its subsequent removal from the suite.

Oracle is committed to providing a simple and intuitive experience to the users of the service. To achieve this goal, Financial Reporting Web Studio, a component available since the release, will be established as the only tool for designing and building reports. As a result, Financial Reporting Studio desktop client support will be fully transitioned to Financial Reporting Web Studio, tentatively in mid-2017. With a planned mid-2017 update, Financial Reporting Studio desktop client is planned to no longer be distributed.
Starting with the release, Financial Reporting Web Studio will achieve functional parity with most of the capabilities provided with Financial Reporting Studio desktop client. You will be able to create new reports and modify existing reports using Financial Reporting Web Studio.
Oracle recommends that you transition to using Financial Reporting Web Studio at the earliest opportunity.

I've been using the web studio for a while now and for the most part it is familiar to those used to the desktop client. The key thing when working with it is to open the report, and then on the left panel click the object (grid, image, text, chart) on which you wish to work. The additions in the 704 PSU address some of the missing items. There are a few more to go.
