Switchover is the time period from which the actual version switchesover to the version being displayed.

For example, the forecast version has a switchover date of Jun 21. 

When switchover is enabled when the forecast version is selected actual version data will show up to the Apr 21 and from Jun 21 data will switchover to the selected forecast version.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

 

When Switchover is enabled then the Anaplan will merge Actual data with forecast data.

 

Here is the example. Considering Switchover date is May

 

 SwitchoverJanFebMarchAprilMay
Actual  12345
ForecastBefore1122334455
ForecastAfter123455

 

Hope it helps!!
