Anaplan does not allow to create a same member again in the same hierarchy. In your case, "Ice cream" cannot be present in both L0 and L1. Generally, we concatenate in the source, such as L0-Ice Cream and L1-Ice Cream to differentiate.
Thank you for the answers. I wonder why it's an issue in Anaplan when it's being imported in a different list. Can we safely say this is a limitation in Anaplan? As a temporary solution, I did include a period on the end of the L1 list name. I will just have to explain this to the client regarding this.
When you say period, I assume you are talking about the time period? If so, please do not do this exponentially explodes your list and causes model open performance as well as it eats space. For further information on this, please refer to this article.
you will not able to achieve it via process, it is not allowed to create members with the same name on different levels of the hierarchy using process, as you noted that could be achieved only manually. There are couple of solutions though:
- concatenate name & code on one of the level before importing it to the list (I go for this one the most often)
- add additional part of the name e.g. Ice Cream Group on higher level
