User list used as a dimension, allow to create a subset to reduce module size


I would like to use the user list as a dimension so users are not overwriting each others settings, but the module with the data the settings select is big and so is my user list, so this adds a lot of unnecessary model size.


Can't there be the ability to create subsets of the user list when used as a dimension, like for other lists?

  • It would be very useful for saving space. Applying the full user list to large modules when only a few of them need it takes up a lot of space unnecessarily. A workaround is to use a custom user list and to map it to the system one, but it would be more convenient if it worked natively.

  • Hi Team! Do we have a solution for creating subset list for users list?

    A pity this feature is not planned. It would still make a great optimization if delivered.

  • really need this feature as well

  • Could you share the reason why the request was denied?


    I can imagine multiple uses where this could be very usefull.

    Just wondering if there is any update or related topic on this one. This is the same challenge we are encountering. Thanks 🙂

  • Hi @Marlon , we are actively investigating it. We don't have an exact date to release this enhancement yet, but it is considered for the roadmap! 

  • Just came here to add this idea.


    Using the entire Users list is very inefficient/sparse when only a small handful of users need a certain functionality, and creating and maintaining an additional "fake" users list to get around this is a lot of extra work.

  • Please make this happen

  • Any update? 

  • Meanwhile un update from Anaplan, we can create our subset:
