Oracle Hyperion Smart View Cascade Feature

I recently delivered some training for a client who had been using HFM for many years and one of the key items that they thought would save them time was the Smart View Cascade feature.
 
Simply, the cascade feature copies the ad hoc tab and duplicates it with all the connection details etc. and enables you to change any dimension member which appears on the POV. i.e. changing the Scenario or even selecting a bunch of Entity members which makes duplication much faster.

Click OK and it will add a tab for each selected dimension member, and even name the tab accordingly:
