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.
