New to anaplan platform, i want to insert the formula in my system module and i know we can search it in anaplan anapedia under all functions tab to see which function to apply. But it's not easy to search for a particular line item.
Eg i want to insert formula for years only? boolean formatted line item, so how to find out which formula needs to be inserted?
There's quite a number of ways to do a given thing in Anaplan. Over time, you'll learn the most important functions and they will be at your fingertips! For now, can you share what dimension applies to the subsidiary view (the Years only? line item) in your screenshot and I can help you with the year formula
In the first module of time settings if you will use this as filter module and applied the time dimension as time range for Current period, So you just need to activate all boolean by putting True Condition and use them as Filters.
In case you want to achieve this from Model Current Period than you can use below two Formulas
Current Period - CURRENTPERIODSTART() = START()
Forecast period - START() >= Current Period Start
By START function you can achieve the start date and reconcile with the current period of model month start date, If the both are same it will show true.
In second you are correctly approaching just that rest of data will come in the training for upload except for few dimension which are parent of the employee list or any other line item. Use Parent Item to get the results.
So once you are more familiar with the Anaplan concepts are are building on your own before you try and build out the line items take time to think about the problem and check the calculation functions. you might surprise yourself and find a calculation function that does exactly what you want
Remember the Zen of Anaplan - Simple is better than complex
