I have built a model to capture all the data for the budget cycle of the next year.
I don't work with Anaplan time, instead I have created a list Year which contains one item "Next Year" and has children quarters (Q1-Q2-Q3-Q4) which has children 'Periods' (P01-...-P12).
If the budget cycle for 2020 is over, can I just create a copy of the PROD model and archive it. It will then contain the data for 2020 and I call it "Budget 2020".
Then I clear all the data in the original PROD model, start capturing figures for 2021. When that cycle is over, I take a copy of the PROD model and archive it and call it Budget 2021.
Same approach for all the cycles to come.
I want to be able to look back at least 2 budget cycles.
Is this the good approach?
Thanks for your input.
