  This set of training classes includes information on improving model performance by understanding and eliminating sparsity. Classes include:   Introduction to Sparsity (309) Unnecessary model size has a large impact on your Anaplan environment from using valuable space to slowing down key processes. Sparsity is one of the biggest causes of inflated models. Understanding what sparsity is and how it impacts a model is the first step in knowing how to reduce it. After completing this learning you will will be able to: Define concepts such as storage capacity and workspace memory Differentiate between model, module and line item sizes Contrast the differences between sparse cells and dense cells Explain how sparsity is measured in a model This class will take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.   Launch Training      Eliminating Sparsity (310) Sparse cells within an Anaplan model are cells that do not contain and are not expected to contain data. The platform still needs to allocate memory space to these cells even though they are not used. The trick is being able to identify and combat these cells in existing models as well as preventing them when building new.   After completing this learning you will will be able to: Identify sparse cells in existing models Think critically when building new models to keep sparsity at a minimum Utilize line item components such as Applies to, Formulas, Summary, Versions, and Time to reduce sparsity Analyze which dimensions are necessary in a module and which could be removed Write formulas which allow you to eliminate other line items or dimensions Understand how numbered or subset lists can be used to reduce sparsity   Please note that understanding sparsity is important when taking this training, so we strongly recommend completing 309 Understanding Sparsity before beginning. Additionally to help you follow along we are providing to model blueprints, the before and after of one of the examples used in the training. This class will take approximately 10-20 minutes to complete.   Launch Training

   This set of training classes includes information on User Roles and Selective Access. Classes include:   User Roles Overview (306) Understanding how to setup user roles and selective access is key in the model building process. Take a closer look at the controls available for this process. It provides and overview of both user roles and selective access before moving into more details around the user role feature. It is recommended to take this topic before moving on to 307: Selective Access. After completing this course, the learner will be able to: Explain the importance of user roles and selective access in a model Create a model role Use roles to set permissions for modules, versions, Lists, and Actions Set landing dashboards for roles Personalize content by role Assign a model role This class will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.   Launch Training   Selective Access (307) This course dives deeper into selective access. Using selective access allows the model builder a greater amount of control over what individual users see and have access to. After completing this course, the learner will be able to: Explain the items for which selective access can allow and deny access Turn on selective access Setting selective access for users Assigning selective access by user Explain how selective access affects dashboard views and interactions Utilize selective access with dependent dropdowns Assign different levels of read and write access This class will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. Launch Training     Automating User Access (308) Users can be automatically added to a model through an Import process. At the same time you can also set their Model Role and Selective Access information automatically. This training covers what you need to know to perform this process. After completing this course, the learner will be able to: Automatically add users to the system through an import Set users model role and any selective access designations Setup a permission module Utilize saved views to optimize the import process Create import actions Automate permission updates If you would like a closer look at the formulas and setup, a model blueprint is available for download.

Use of effective dating addresses the basic challenge of recording the dates when a change is made in the system. To use an HR example, recording when an employee transfers from one department to another. Other examples include contract renewals, territory assignments, and compensation plans. Essentially, any change that you want to be able to document and record a history of when that change happened, requires effective dating. After completing this course, the learner will be able to: Explain when is an appropriate time to use effective dating techniques and why they are important Utilize start, end, and transfer dates to create effective dating formulas Create an Action to sync employee information Have the system properly attribute resources to the correct hierarchy, such as the employee's salary to the correct department Write formulas to calculate headcount This class will take approximately 17-20 minutes to complete.   The model blueprint is also attached to this article.
