Exporting data to other system but triggered inside Anaplan
I would like to explore the possibility to trigger (with a button in Anaplan) a data export from Anaplan to another system. For some of our processes our Anaplan users are currently hitting a 'magic button' outside Anaplan to transfer data from Anaplan to a different target system. It would be nice for them to have this button in Anaplan.
At the moment all data integration to/from Anaplan we are using the Anaplan connect. So in fact the 'magic button' is triggering the Anaplan connect script.

Hi Guido, You cannot execute an Anaplan Connect script from within Anaplan on a dashboard. You can run an export action from the Dashboard and then have process to 'listen' for a new file on the server and load to target system.
There is no native solution that allows this, as @linda_erickson mentioned. However, I've developed a solution, in production now, that allows for actions to be run ad-hoc from within Anaplan. If you'd like more details about it, I'd be happy to arrange a meeting to review the solution. The best way to reach me is by email.
