Hello Anaplan Community!

I’m excited to share my ‘How I Built It’ tutorial with you all. This video shows how you can cleverly use an index list and text list to combine two custom time schedules. Building a custom time schedule can be difficult if there are different cadences to account for. This video shows how you can take any two schedules, combine them, remove duplicates, and order it sequentially.

This solution could be helpful in developing a payment schedule, for example two different subscriptions, or an interest and amortization schedule. Additionally, you can layer in calculations that generate each schedule so that it is fully automated.

Check it out and let me know if you have questions!
