Anaplan Groups

Change is in the air.

Watch for additional changes and improvements over the next few months. In the meantime, drop in on Groups in the Community to join the conversation, and don’t miss the exciting Groups events happening during Digital CPX in September.

Last month, we launched our beautifully redesigned standard badges which include number of replies, comments, kudos, etc. We also introduced the new Anniversary badge, Group Member badge, and Group Leader icon. This month, we are all about Academy! We will be launching badges for completion of Level 1-3 training and the Anaplan Way course, as well as badges for Trainers, Certified Model Builders, Solution Architects and individuals who complete the Anaplan Platform bootcamp. Lastly, we will be deploying a newly designed Master Anaplanner badge. More on the way in September, so stay tuned!
