Any idea for getting current date that always up to date in Anaplan

I need an idea for getting current date in Anaplan.


  • Hi @Fide

    You can use the below step.

    1. Create a line item with current date, populate it manually for the first time.
    2. Create another line item with 'next date'.
    3. Create an import from 'next date' to 'current date'.
    4. Schedule this import to run once everyday using CloudWorks.

    However, you would need to make sure, you keep track of all the maintenance activities that happen at the backend, and check your current date randomly after maintenance activity.

    Hope that helps,

  • @aakash Thank you for your guidance. I will try to follow that step. Hopefully, it will work. Thank you so much.

  • @Sai_Bharadwaj_Venati Thank you for the advice, I will try it. Thank you so much.

  • With anaplan api and python script, It is feasible to write directly into line item cells. Some basic information are required such as workspace id, model id, module id and line item id.

  • Hi @skarki

    For scheduling this to update automatically, you would still need to host your script somewhere.
