If you currently have the display name as an editable field in a list property, I would recommend changing that to make that property to having a formula that is pointing to a line item in a module that would be editable. That way the editable display name can be in a module, linked to a property that is the display name and displayed on a board or worksheet in NUX.
Thank you for your reply. Yeah, no one want to hear the word "impossible" even though I keep saying that with my end users as well : ). I think this is a big limitation for Anaplan. I know the data and formula for a line item or list should be tie from anaplan model to new ux. But for naming things, it should be flexible as other powerful tools like python, R, as well. Something seems quick simple to realize in Excel, but turns to be impossible in Anaplan and New UX. That's bit sad.
So the reason is because many models sharing the same list across diff scenerios, say this group of users want to change the name from "apple" to "appl", but the other users want to keep it as it is. (These two group are from diff teams so they have their own preference for reporting and display purpose) What can we do under this situation? Thank you!
The first suggestion would be to rationalise your metadata and standardise it. Do not allow different names. Change is a process but teams will adapt.
A new planning model if significant should be accompanied by a detailed and widespread change management project to ensure that these issues are dealt with and that chances of successful adoption is maximised. What you are suggesting would cause significant data integrity issues as there would be a lack of consistency across the organisation and would inevitably cause confusion. Therefore, I believe it is not possible within Anaplan to allow list items to possess multiple names for these very reasons.
