Using a HiveLink model
Step 1: Subscribe to a model
To get started you must first subscribe to a HiveLink model.
Make sure you are logged in with your HiveLink account. If you don’t have one you can click to create one from the page. Click Subscribe to this model.
Step 2: Download the user spreadsheet
Once you are subscribed to a model you will be able to download the model’s spreadsheet.
Step 3: Open the spreadsheet
After downloading the user spreadsheet open it in Excel. HiveLink user spreadsheets have our HiveLink Excel ribbon plugin embedded inside them. To allow the HiveLink plugin to load you must first enable macros to run in the spreadsheet. First, click to Enable Editing:
Then click Enable Content to allow macros to run:
Then the HiveLink ribbon should be loaded.
Warning: Only enable macros for spreadsheets given to you by people you trust, as there is the potential that harmful macros may exist inside the spreadsheet.
Step 4: Process your data
Edit the input data in the spreadsheet, and then click Get Projected Balances.
It will prompt you to log in with your HiveLink account. You can click to remember your password so it doesn’t ask you again.
It will then start processing your data and should only take a few seconds.
Then you should see the output results!
Step 5: View your job history
Each HiveLink model processes data at different speeds. If processing takes longer than 10 seconds then HiveLink will allow you to get the results of your processing job later. Click the Job Results button in the HiveLink ribbon:
Then you will see the Job History pane appear in Excel, showing a full history of your processing jobs.
Now you can start experimenting with HiveLink and processing different input data.
