Branch & Merge in ALM
Our company has a dilemma situation recently. We have a PROD model (deployed mode) and a DEV model (standard mode). We are adopting ALM as the best practice. Recently the DEV model is under construction, multiple tasks are being performed and untested, so we cannot synchronize DEV to PROD in a near future.
However, an urgent new import button(with new action) needs to be added to PROD model ASAP. Is there a way to add this new feature only, without any other DEV changes. This is like making a branch in GITHUB/TFS/CVS and at a later time, merge the changes with other branches. Does Anaplan support this approach?
Another possible way is: we make this change directly in PROD (which needs the mode changed first), or make this change in a copy of PROD and then sync to PROD. But my tests proves that the PROD can never be synchronized with DEV any more if we did this, could anyone confirm this?
