Date of version start

Hi,

please help

I've got versions with switchover:

1.Actual

2.Budget-mar 19 switchover

3.Forecast-June 19 switchover

 

I need to have 2 line items showing:

1. Budget start date

2. Budget end date

Re: Date of version start

Hi,

 

personally, I don't understand your question. Are you asking how to get the switchover date into a line item ?

but that won't give you budget end

Re: Date of version start

Hi!

Yes, you got me right, I need to get the Switchover date to the line item. That gives me a budget start date, then I will add 365 days to the start date, thus I will have the budget end.

Re: Date of version start

you can do this using the formula ISACTUALVERSION() for example.

The switchover means in the past Anaplan considers it to be the actual version.

 

So if you a line item like (with time and version dimension) in a module called SYS01: Time Filters:

Detector = IF ISACTUALVERSION() then 1 else 0

Switchover date(date formatted,time summary: first non blank) = if detector = 0 and previous(detector) = 1 then start() else blank

That gives you the date.

Now you need to extract that into a module without time like SYS02: Time Settings:

'SYS01: Time Filters'.Switchover date[select:time.all periods]

 

You can find this in the time filters app available on the app hub

Re: Date of version start

Hi,

 

I am considering you are referring start date as switch over date.

If yes, then below is the solution to get the start date(Only start date)

 

1. Create 2 line items say Switchover Month Calculate (Month Format,Formula Scope: Actual Version) and Switchover Month(Month Format, Formula Scope: All Version)

2.Write the formula as ITEM(Time) for Switchover Month Calculate line item

 
 

3. Now in Switchover Month line item, write the formula as "Switchover Month Calculate[SELECT: VERSIONS.Budget, SELECT: TIME.All Periods]

All period will show currently June 19

4. Create another line item say Current Switchover and write the formula as Switchover Month + 1, this will give you the Jul 19 as your switchover month.
