Hi, I just did some tests in a model. These are the settings:
Afterwards, I created some modules, published them on dashboards. Whenever I open module or dashboard, the time page selector shows on Dec 19. Can you share the screenshot with your time settings? Maybe your module as well? Are you not using any filters in your module?
Regarding current date, at this moment there is no equivalent of NOW() function as in Excel. However, you can run daily import via Anaplan Connect. Check out this thread, you can find more information and script:
I don't have a theory which will prove that it should open on Current Period Only. It all depends on what selection are you saving your module
If you haven't then I would say select your current month in your month module (Let's say Jan) and then save the module on that view. Close the module, change the current period on Time Settings and reopen the module you should be able to see the same selection that you just made in your month module page selector even after changing the current period.
Also Day Selection doesn't auto sync with the month selection, its the other way around - meaning if you select 1st Feb in Day module that won't be synced to Month Module and your month module will keep showing Jan if that was the original selection.
Brings me to the point when we create the hierarchy and you select the parent node of that hierarchy on the dashboard your children gets populated based on the parent selection ( if your sync selection is on) but if you have to do it other way round you will have to reverse the hierarchy. Not sure if that can be done in Native Time of Anaplan
Re: How to have current month or current date when i open a module?
Choosing "end the fiscal year " option, the system by default aligns the Fiscal Year Label with the calendar year in which the end date of the fiscal year. For the module showing '2 Feb 20' day ,can you check if it is the default view saved with?
