Schedule "Copy & Archive" - Backup Model


As a customer, we would like to schedule "Copy & Archive" action to records Back-up of models. Preferably with a direct and easy way : for example in the manage model menu.


This is relevant for customers with more than 5 models to improve security and avoid manual actions (Manuel Copy & Archive). The Archive Name could have the timestamp.

  • There seem to be several other posts with a similar request going back over a year....some Under Investigation and some still Needing Community support.  Seems like this is widely desired - can these items be linked to show the Community requests and support is there and push forward to implement a solution?

  • Status changed to: New
  • It would be very useful especially there is not a work-around (at least to my knowledge) to schedule this using "REST API"  or Anaplan connect scripts. 

  • This is very similar to 



    Please kudo both so it gets the proper support. 


    To Community admins - can we consolidate these enhancements? 

  • We need to automate the "Admin" tasks and "copy and archive" is one of the task we would like to automate . 

  • This would be very beneficial and would cut down on manual tasks we have to do as our platform continues to expand! I would add that any automated backup/archive should be produced with a consistent naming convention and date/timestamp. One example may look like "ABAK [10 char. name of workspace]-[10 char. name of model]-[date/time]".

    This functionality would be a great addition. Hopefully this can be added to the roadmap as soon as possible.

  • We have the same requirement and this could simply be scheduled avoiding manual repetitive activities

  • Exactly, a solution where the model automatically gets Copied and Archieved every day/ week/ month or as per users need, will be highliy appreciated. 🙂

  • This would be very helpful! 

  • ujourney

    Is this being considered, whether internal scheduling via UI or API functionality? This would be very helpful.

  • Yes I agree. This would be an excellent feature to schedule these copy and archive processes.

  • KBeltz

    An outstanding yes!

  • Hi, this is something that would be very useful, someone of you knows if this is on schedule for Anaplans Enhancements? Thank you in advance, Joana

  • I'm wondering what the status is on this request? @Miran

  • Any updates on this ? There are several similar requests :

    And I agree with the rest of the community : it should be an out of the box functionality where we could easily schedule and customise the name of the backups
