Formula Access Driver


Sometimes we have a list in which some list items should be populated via a formula and some other list items via a manual input.

The way to model this at the moment is to create 2 line items enabling to input first and see the final amount that takes into account the formula.

Obviously, from an end-user perspective, this is hard to sell to anyone new to Anaplan.


I think it would be great to have a Formula Access Driver in the same way that there are Read/Write access drivers. The Formula Access Driver would be a field in the blueprint where you could reference a boolean like the R/W access drivers. It would then have the following effect: if true then the formula apply, if false, then it does not and a manual input is needed.


This would enable to have the functionality described above.
