Anaplan model rename - Impact on linked excel Reports via add-in

Hi all, If I change my model name, then will the excel reports linked to the model's various modules via add-ins face issue or they will refresh just as usual and will automatically read from the model as the ID is still the same. 

 

Please confirm. 

 

Best

Natasha

I think that the answer is yes... but @MagaliP can confirm!

Have tested on one of mine and yes it's fine.

yes, it's linked to model ID, not name.

If the connection was to break for another reason (because you deleted a model for instance), you could use the "remap a connection" functionality.
