Creating new line items for each year instead of using native time?
I recently took over a few models that make use of a month list and separate line items for each year instead of Anaplan's native time functionality. I was told the models were built this way because end users didn't find the dashboards to be intuitive and this was a means to improve the user experience.
Here's an example of the end result:
I've completed L3 model building and don't remember seeing any mention of this type of model design. I'm curious what Anaplan's stance is on this design? While I do agree that the above view provides a nice user experience, it seems to be at the cost of maintainability.
The Anaplan ecosystem at this organization is still in its early stages, but growing fast, and I'm worried if we don't move away from this type of model design the maintenance will become unmanageable.
