Goal

There is a case in which the business would like to see the APCC dashboards using different category set.

From the APCC user's guide for MSC: APCC Category Set 2 "This profile works in conjunction with MSC: APCC Category Set 1 and MSC:APCC Category Set 3. These profiles govern which category set the analytical layer when displaying the item-category hierarchy uses. It precomputes the data for all three hierarchies, but displays the data using only the MSC: APCC Category Set 1 value. Therefore, if the user wants to view using the value in MSC: APCC Category Set 2, the values in these two profiles must be switched. The user can then see the results using the new category set, which is now in the MSC: APCC Category Set 1 profile."

So does this mean if a user wants to see the data in dashboard with respect to Category set 2 or 3 they need to change the profile option value of MSC:APCC Category Set 1 with MSC:APCC Category Set 2? If so, how will this help the business if they need to see aggregation with respect to Planning Category and Purchasing Category?
