Applications of Newly introduced process/action timestamp .?
Anaplan is has recently introduced start date and time update w.r.t each process/actions run which has been very helpful.
Is there a way through which this timestamp can be published on DB or used in model building..?
Thanks in Advance.
Great question. Unfortunately not yet. But there is an idea on the exchange. Hopefully this will be added soon.1
No, not possible.
However you can do like the user data: set up an export of the actions tab and re-import it into a module. Then that can be scheduled to be updated automatically every x.2
Thanks @JaredDolich and @nathan_rudman
As of, I am using the same work around @nathan_rudman.
But looking at something where i can use it directly/dynamically rather depending on integration.
I've discussed it with R&D as soon as I saw this update. It is quite unlikely we will get this natively.0
If not natively, surely they might provide another workaround.
1. May be whenever a process/actions is published on DB the timestamp also is visible and updates itself in sync with the process/action run.
2. Granularity :- List/ list member also get introduced to timestamp. (an extension to Process/action)
We'd use the functionality, what if an enhancement request is made? Trying to come up with a way to show the timestamp for last time data is updated in various modules, use of that timestamp data would have solved my problem! 🙂1
As a workaround I've added an action to write the user name into a line item and instructed user to right click to check user story on that to check the exact time.
Recently I found a way to explicit publish a timestamp with an action by creating an Anaplan TimeStamp with a CloudWorks schedule in a Model, it runs every hour an changes changes the input on a line time to = previous time + 10
