Displaying your data as a Calendar view
Ever wonder how to display your data in a calendar format in Anaplan or simply just want to have a color-coded display based on a specific alert/indicator in a calendar form?
We just need 2 simple lists
Day of Week and
Week Number to start with.
Then we need 2 modules
Day of Week Mapping and
Calendar Map to turn it into a calendar display.
Day of Week Mapping module
, we just need
Time dimension at day level and
Line Items. I've included the screenshot of the Blueprint view for reference.
Calendar Map module, we just need to bring all the lists together (Time, Day of Week, Week Number) with a simple SUM formula.
Publish the calendar map module into a Page and add a bit of formatting, display options, comment display and you will get a pretty useful display of Calendar in Anaplan.
Hope this is useful. Would love to see how you apply this technique. Please share them in the comments below.
