changing dimension of a module once its created

Options

I'm trying to add a column to an existing module in Anaplan, but I can't seem to find the option to do so. The only modifications I can make are to the lists, time scale, and version of the module. How can I add a new column to a module once it's already created? Any guidance would be appreciated!

    Hi,

    To add a new line item, go to the blueprint mode and click on this button to add a new line item. If you still cannot add it, check that the model is not in deployed mode.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for the guidance. However, I am not looking to add a new line item. What I actually want to do is add a column. Could you please provide instructions on how to achieve that?

    Could you please share a screenshot of where you want to add a new column? A new column can be a new item in any of the dimensions or a new line item depending on how your module is pivoted.

    @shubhamrawat , For example, as shown above, I can add different items from the List and apply roll-ups to the columns while creating a new module. However, once the module has been created, how do I modify the columns? Specifically, if I currently view data by 'Country' in the columns, how can I change this to 'Location

  • @Sivadanush - To change the dimension of the existing module, you can click on the three dots which are shown in Applies to. Below is the screenshot

    Once you click here, Press Ctrl and select the new dimension you want to add. Once you are done selecting new dimension, simply click Ok at the bottom.

    In your case above, you mentioned you have to add location and remove country dimension, so while selecting the new dimension which is location just deselect the country dimension and click OK.

    Let me know if you need any more details.
