The Excel Add-in for Anaplan is a key feature of the system, although all organisations would like to steer away from using this sometimes this is the easiest solution to a problem. I have used similar systems to Anaplan, Hyperion, Board, Cognos and TM1 and find this area very inflexible and lacking compared to its competitors.
I would like to see the ability to create dynamic custom built links to Anaplan via the spreadsheet add-in rather than being restricted by the current embedded process. The current version causes considerable rework when changes are made in the system and restricts possibilities of using the system in stages before build is complete. For reference, my preferred add-in by far was smart view :-).
