Dear Anaplan ... Why?

Dear Anaplan,


I love the new Model Experience, it's elegant, organized, gives me easy access to things I need and the search feature is amazing.
Unfortunately, I can't use the A+ Chrome extension with it. Why would you take that away from me 🙁?
My productivity is at least 10% lower. (shhhh don't tell my boss)

I understand that A+ and similar extensions are not "sanctioned" by Anaplan, But they are helpful. So maybe Anaplan should either come up with a similar homegrown tool or turn the other way while we use the available ones 😅
I find myself with an ultimatum, either sacrifice the new modeling experience or sacrifice A+
This request agrees with Anaplan's principle of making Anaplan easy to use by business users. 


If you are reading this and has been affected with this change or you just like A+ - or any similar tool honestly -, you can vote up this request on the idea exchange

So, Dear Anaplan... Why?

Re: Dear Anaplan ... Why?

I do not think that Anaplan did anything on purpose to disable the A + add-on. It's just that the add-on developers did not adapt it to NME interface (it simply cannot find the elements on the page, on the basis of which it works).

I believe that Anaplan will eventually transfer all of its functionality to NME 😇

I better tell A+ then 😁

Thank you @AntonMineev 
That actually makes sense.

Re: Dear Anaplan ... Why?

I guess backwards compatibility with the extension was not the main aim of the NME?

 

Anyway seems like development for the extension has been halted. The extension description (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/a%20-for-anaplan-model-buil/najhicgfojolaebaoccdbopmobcdhp...) lists a dead link (https://www.bipixconsulting.com/a-for-anaplan) as a description.

 

But it seems like the NME is a great start to see those features come to the Modelling Interface?
