Copy and paste in NUX

Hi Community,

 

I want to copy 4-5 values from a excel sheet and paste it in a specific editable line item on the NUX dashboard.

I am not able to achieve it.

Is there something i am missing to achieve this/ how can this be done.?

 

Thanks in Advance.

You can use Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V Option.It works

 

However there is one missing thing in NUX. It doesn't alert users if the cell is a read only and you try to input the number in it. This feature is available in classic UX.

I have used CTRL+C and CTRL+V, but it doesn't seem to work.

And the cell is not read only,As  it is part of a input lineitem with allow editing activated.

It should. We do it on a daily basis whether it is classic or NUX it works.

 

Try clearing out your cache from your browser or try diff browser and see if that works

Hi @Misbah 

 

The Copy and paste is working for only single cell at a time but the client wants to paste values for 4 cells at once from excel.

 Lineitem where the values are to be pasted is breakback enabled.

Here is my analysis on it.

 

Breakback functionality allows you to change the numbers which otherwise you will not be able to change. For example changing the numbers in Q1 and anaplan re allocates the numbers for all the 3 months of Q1. Let's say if we want to copy paste the numbers in all the three months of Q1 as well as for Q1 itself ( making the count as 4) it will throw an error in Classic UX 

Numbers I wanted to copy paste 

Jan  = 1300

Feb = 1230

Mar = 1430

Q1 = 1540

Error is valid because it doesn't make any sense that you input values for all 4 which doesn't tie up at all. (Q1 is not summing up with Jan, Feb & Mar)

 

In NUX: these type of alerts are missing.Making you think that the copy paste doesn't work

Now, In order to validate it here is what I have done:

Case 1: I have copy pasted just three values and below is the result. (Q1 being an input because it is breakback enabled cell).

Case 2: Let's try to input all four but Q1 matches exactly with the summation of Jan, Feb & Mar it copy pastes it without any issue. There is a small lag but it copy pastes successfully.

Case 3: Finally I tried to Copy paste all the 4 numbers where my Q1 was not matching with Jan, Feb & Mar summation. it doesn't do anything, because it doesn't make any sense if you input all 4 when you parent is not matching with its descendents

 

Hope that helps

Re: Copy and paste in NUX

Thanks a Ton @Misbah. I understand the logic presented.

But here i need to paste values for only two months at once. (w.r.t example displayed)

I cannot paste it NUX for two at once.

In NUX even for one cell for the copy paste to work , i need to first double click it and then only can paste.

It just doesn't happen like classic UX where in we select the cell and paste.

For me it works although there is a lag and is not as efficient as Classic UX. Also I didn't have to double click in a cell and paste it.

 

As others suggested let Anaplan Support take a look at this and share the feedback.

@Misbah 

I don't know why it isn't working for me.

Have raised a ticket to Anaplan.

 

Thanks.
