Set the Export File Name at the time of Export


Hi when running a Data Export I would like to be able to choose what the file name should be when exporting the file via a prompt. In an ideal world I would like to be able to decide on a prefix and suffix for the file name. With one of the options either being the date/time or the value I set in a module. One of my customers needs the file produced to be named differently each time an export is run where the most obvious way would be to include a timestamp.

  • It would also be good to have the Export file name based on certain dimension/line item, e.g. version name for a particular forecast to be exported.

  • Any updates from Anaplan on this type of enhancement ?

  • Hi @nick_barker 
    Together with my colleagues we were thinking about the same idea! 
    Currently we are renaming our files out of Anaplan, it would be a great enhancement.

  • Great idea Nick ! It will surely be a very useful functionality.
