I would like to ask for a new functionality within Anaplan that could really ease our work with Anaplan. And that is multi selection. I see two ways how to apply multi selection, both very helpful:
1. Multi selection for context selector. Once the dimension is displayed as "Context/Page Selector", it would be great to have a possibility for multi selection which would automatically summed up the selected items from the hierarchy - thus, we would have a possibility to see the sum of the values in the object per e.g. two countries that do not need to have the same parent.
2. Multi selection for drop down lists. When we display the dimension as row or column and we are using custom filters (using another line item with a format "list" to filter the content in the object), it would be great to have a possibility for the filter to have a multi selection - we could choose more than only one item from the list which would result in showing rows/columns that match more than only one item from the list, e.g. rows matching country A and below them rows matching country B.
3. Improvement of Filter in New UX. Alternative to the point 2 (however much less flexible) is to improve the existing filters in New UX in the following way:
a) we should have a possibility to apply them on more than one table. We often need to add two tables next the each other - one with no time, one with time dimensionality, but both creating one input table. In such case it is not possible to apply one filter to both tables which greatly limits the option to use this built-in filter.
b) it should be possible to edit them directly in the table (as e.g. "Search" works) and not in the right panel
c) often, the whole name of the items in the field "Choose" is not visible - once it is longer and has more parents, we are unable to see the whole name of the items in the drop down. This should be changed.
