Anaplan Time Days Mapping with Custom Days List

Hi,

 

I have created a module to map Anaplan days with Custom Days List (snapshot attached).

But while I am trying to use the Custom list in Sum formula it is not giving any value.

 

Time settings at my end are at week Level (4-4-5). 

I have build this mapping because while aggregating days into months gives wrong summation due to automatic week aggregation before.

I have tried to Sum Anaplan days data at corrected Month Level using sum function but again nothing summing up.

 

Cheers,

Prashant

Hi @CommunityMember126473 ,

 

The solutions posted by @KirillKuznetsov should help you solve the problem, but thought I could give some additional detail. 

 

By which dimension is your source date dimensioned? I recon you try to use [SUM:] through a module with a native time dimension. But sum across native time dimensions does not work as it does in regular lists. 

 

What you would have to do is lookup the data from the source with native time to a module dimensioned by dummy time. Basically creating a copy of the original module, just changing time dimensions. Then you would have to have a dummy time systems module, where you map the dummy days to months (similar to your screenshot, but again native time changed to dummy time list). And then summing across the dummy time dimension would work.
