PerformancePoint Planning Admin Console

The first thing I noticed about the PerformancePoint Planning console was the 'in your face' look and feel.  The menu items are big and clunky, headings oversized and the font is generally big and wiry.

So, I made a point of finding the theme and style sheet files responsible and pulled out my metaphorical scalpel and got to work.

I've not made a huge design impact.  In fact, some would probably not notice as I've gone for the subtle-yet-effective cosmetic surgery.  However, it makes a difference to me and stops me from rolling my eyes every time I see a 28pt sub title!

For those interested, the .skin and .css files can be found in the following location on a default installation:

c:\Program Files\Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server\2007\AdminConsole\App_Themes\BizAdmin

The two files in question are:

- bizadmin.skin and,
- BizAdmin.css

The updated files for my custom paint job can be downloaded from here

    Hi Shreyas,

    Just treat the cubes that are created by the planning server as a data source for your monitoring dashboards.

    The following blog also highlights some gotchas:
