    Hi @prash248 


    The following works if the list you're working on is a numbered list:

    1. Num List 2 is the child of Num List 1. The method i'm suggesting works for any new Numbered List created under any parent, i.e. Num List 1.Screen Shot 2019-12-24 at 08.46.10.png


    2. I put in some dummy members in Num List 1, Num List 2. Note that Num List 2 have members starting with '#' because it's a numbered list.

    3. The module 'Num List 2 Details' is created. Set summary method of 'Number' to 'Max'.

    4. Blueprint of 'Num List 2 Details'.

    5. 'Lookup Module 4' is created to capture the largest number from 'Num List 2 Details'.Number, and turn that into 'Num List 2'.

    You can then publish 'Lookup Module 4'.'Latest Num List 2'.


    Note that the '4' in 'Lookup Module 4' is arbitrary, i have 3 other 'Lookup Module' in my test model.

  • HI @prash248,

    My recommendation is to create 2 line items 'Filter for New Items' and 'Snapshot' in the system module (Dimension by the list).

    Put 'Not Snapshot' as a formula for 'Filter for New Items'

    Create an import action to copy the information from 'Filter for New Items' to 'Not Snapshot'. Note: Saved view should have a filter on 'Filter for New Items' as true. Then include this action at the first in the process which updates the list.

    I hope this helps!



  • could you please explain in detail ?


  • @prash248 


    When you load data into anaplan you want to identify the new items as @kavinkumar mentions.

    If you have already loaded data into anaplan previously you will have data in place to compare to the new data. 

    This will then allow you to understand which new items have been created. 

    If the data is used to create the list items in the list you need to compare the existing data to the new data before it is used to create new items. 

    To do this you can use the finditem formula on existing items in the list and the finditem will not find the new items until they are added to the list.

    The you can use a boolean to determine the items which are not found in the finditem line item and this will then show the new items. 


    I hope this helps!

    Do see if the following works:

    1. I have a simple list, i.e. Cost Center. It has 3 existing members, i.e. CC 1, CC 2, CC3

    2. A System module, i.e. Cost Center Details is created.

    3. The blueprint of 'Cost Center Details' is shown below.

    4. A Saved View called 'New CC' is created with the following filter. This saved view will be published in the dashboard in step 6 below.

    5. A process with the 2 import actions below is created.

    5.1 'Load Cost Center Details' copy 'Cost Center Details.True Flag' --> 'Cost Center Details.Old?' This step marks existing Cost Center members with a TRUE flag.

    5.2 Create Cost Center is an import action that adds new Cost Center members. In my case, i'm using a Cost Center.csv with 3 members, i.e. CC X, CC Y, CC Z.

    6. The process and saved view are published in an Admin Page dashboard.

    7. Attached below shows the results of the newly created Cost Center.

  • Thanx @LipChea

    but I want to publish only the latest(sinlge) inserted list item to dashboard not entire list.
