Line Items: Which line items do not need a summary?


When is this a problem?

When a new line item is created, a summary method is added by default. Many line items do not need summary calculations.


Why is this a problem?

Running unnecessary calculations can increase the time it takes to open a model.


How to correct:

When creating a new line item, make it a habit to turn off summarizing. If a summary is needed, then turn the summary back on.

  • Can Anaplan set the summary default to 'none' and let the user turn it on if necessary...?
