In this tutorial we will complete the Employee Management tab of the application which will allow the user to add an employee to the workforce list. This involves adding a new member to the employee dimension and updating the data for the newly created employee all in a single step perceived by the user. The application does not need force the user to create a new employee first, and then edit the details, as is frequently done.
Adding a new employee involves updating a dimension with a new member and then writing associated information to the cube that the dimension was used in. Performing this operation using a TI script can be problemmatic, especially when a large number of users are creating new dimension members at the same time. Timing is critical and you need to guarantee that the newly added member is also the same member the data being written back to, or you will have corrupt data.
