Hi All,

I've given access to myself as workflow owner but not able to see workflow tab .

Can anyone have idea about that?

  • Hello @Ashutosh please can you share if you find out something? How to enable the workflow owner? Do i need a special licenze, charged function?

  • Hii @FrankPau , I've just given to me the role as workflow owner from Admin Tab. But apart from that I am not able to see anything.

    So , I thought to ask community about that. If anyone has update what is the requirement or any other process we need to do. I am also unaware about that.



  • Did you try cookie cleaning? (all time)..

    Ensure proper permissions set for workflow visibility. Verify access settings to troubleshoot the missing workflow tab. Ehallpass

  • Would also check the cookie & cache cleanup first. If that doesn't help I would contact Anaplan support.

    My understanding is that there is a licensing fee (applied to all non-read-only users within a tenant) that has to be contracted and paid in order to open up the new Workflow functionality.

    I don't think this is fair, because how are we (as the Anaplan experts and model builders) to understand the technology to be able to recommend this to our leadership if we are not able to use it?? Why doesn't Anaplan at least offer a sandbox environment with this functionality that is separate from client production environments so that we can LEARN?

    I just don't understand. Do we seriously have to convince our leadership to pay to gain access to the functionality in order to understand if they would be willing to pay to deploy this to our end users? That's crazy.

  • @Stacey_Gibbens agree! Reminds me of the days I studied for the certified master anaplanner program and found myself downloading the technical documentation for Informatica and Docusign without actually having access to either of them. IMHO, there's really no way to implement a large scale application without some type of ETL solution, a broad understanding of RESTful APIs, and a productive relationship with IT as it relates to data storage. Wonder how much it costs per license because it will have to be enabled for everyone I guess that's a non-read only? Yikes! Hope this becomes part of the base functionality! Would be a game changer.

  • I'll put here what I put on your idea @Stacey_Gibbens … Having been on the Early Access program we're one step ahead and so have been able to get over that management buy-in - but even I think that we can do a reasonable enough job using notifications, etc without the need to resort to have a process layer over the top. Which is a real shame because the functionality is really good and would have made a couple of our models more manageable in terms of process wrapper especially as the product develops.
