Ability to Select Isolated Cells in Quick Sum Bar


When using the quick sum bar functionality (https://help.anaplan.com/anapedia/Content/Modeling/Navigate%20Anaplan/Quick%20Sum%20Bar.html?_ga=2.86794650.366156822.1550101511-1666663741.1546456255), you are currently only able to select "blocks" of cells (a series of cells in adjacent rows/columns). It would be useful to have the capability to select isolated cells using CTRL + click or some other shortcut. This would save time for end users doing ad-hoc analysis, as they currently have to manually sum values up if the cells are not adjacent to one another.

  • Our planners need the ability similar to control select option in excel which is very handy in day to day work. Currently we have to leverage calculators to do select sum for cells that are not next to each other. This is related to usability and adoption





  • It would be great to be able to select nonadjacent cells and get the same data in the quick sum bar similar to Excel.

  • Yes - the ability to select non-contiguous cells and get the quick stats calculated would be great and help stem the flow of users tempted by the evil fruits of exports to Excel.
