Users are able to view the impacts an object has on others in a list form in the Details view of any object. It is a complement to the Impact Graph, and another way of visualizing impact data.
Visualizing the different associations within an organization allows users to better understand the complexity or certain business activities, as well as the true effect of changes to an object. Impacts can be used to educate business users, to analyze internal business processes and help management optimize activities effectively. Additionally, they help in the preparation of change management plans, allowing managers to map out the effect of any organizational change.
