Custom Time Range - Switchover

Hi Team,

 

The Time Range training states that 'If you want to use the switchover date, you'll want to use the model calender' (see below)

 

I ran some tests and Switchover was working fine when using a Time Range although you cannot select a Switchover Period per Time Range, it is as per the Model Calender

 

Does anyone know what this comment below is referring to?

 

Thanks

 

Mark

@MarkTurkenburg ,

 

Native Switchover can only be set in the Version section of settings:

But, you can always use DCA and base it off a setting (line item) to make the cells read only.  Just be careful with this as your formula will need to get the proper data (Actuals vs. Forecast).  For example, if boolean (the read only boolean) then actual data else forecast.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Rob

Thanks @rob_marshall 

 

So Switchover is Version & Line Item dependent, not Model Calendar/Time Range

Great - I've got it

 

But is that not in conflict with the Anaplan training explanation that I 1st posted? Because it states that you need to use the Model Calendar if you want to use Switchover

@MarkTurkenburg ,

 

I see where you are coming from now and where the disconnect is.  In the image, it is stating you have to use the "granularity" of the model timescale, not the actual timescale.

 

So, for a monthly model:

And for a weekly model:

2020-05-07_19-14-57.png2020-05-07_19-15-10.png

 

Does that help clear it up?

Ahh I get it now - thanks @rob_marshall !

 

I was on the wrong track there but that makes sense now

 

Cheers
