Dimension Maintenance Methods
There are four ways to maintain a dimension within TM1:
- Backend Editor
- Dimension Worksheets
- TI Process
- TM1 API (Possibly via 3rd Party tools)
Most consultants previously recommended using Dimension and Rule Worksheets prior to recent releases of TM1 (9.1 +) where the User Interface has been updated, presently there is no defined best practice and opinions are divided.

Please let me know if I’ve missed anything. I’ll likely be posting Individual Tutorials on each of the Methods tonight.
