Ability to use retrieve data from Anaplan in Excel using a formula


A description of the enhancement required:
Would it be possible develop a "AnaplanRetrieveData" formula for the Excel Add-in, where you can specify all necessary input from excel and the formula then returns the data point.

An example of the enhancement:
Formula in Excel would be:

=AnaplanRetrieveData("Workspace Name","Model Name","Module Name","Line Item Member Name", "Dimension 1 Member Name", ""Dimension 2 Member Name",....)

See screenshots attached for how it would work.

A story for why the enhancement is required (specifically, how would it aid the business process):
It will make it easier for the business to adopt Anaplan at an earlier stage of the development phase. Because they can incorporate part of solution with exiting reporting and calculation templates (In Excel).
