Hi Yugnesh 

 

Thanks for organising the Meet up. 
I was curious about early access and I got the impression that it was different to the Beta of NUX - is this right? And is it worth signing up for?

Thanks!

Hi Yugnesh! 

 

Thanks again for organising this and coming back with the notes. 

 

I just wanted to add that I only saw this post as I was looking through, maybe worth tagging people as they get notifications only when a previous thread they've posted on gets a new post or if they're tagged. 

 

Are there plans inplace for the next meetup? 

 

Thanks,

 

Usman

Hi @usman.zia, I didn't realise that about tagging people. I thought everyone that signed up to the Anaplan Modelers Forum got an email notification about posts?

 

Thanks

Hi @Yugnesh.Patel 

 

I think that you only get notifications to a thread you've posted in not a whole forum area unless you subscribe to it (I don't think joining the group does this automatically). 

 

Thanks,
