Line Items: Are text formatted line items overused?


When is this a problem?

Anaplan is optimized for numbers and Booleans.


Why is this a problem?

Text uses more memory than most other model components and does not perform as well as other data types. Text limits capabilities and impacts model size.


How to correct:

When possible, convert text data to another data type. Check out the Anapedia article and the lesson referenced here for more information.
