Is there a way to lock a period when doing imports?

I have done dynamic cell access to lock periods in  a module. This is working fine when doing direct input to anaplan. But when using import function, even if access is only ready only data is still loaded in Anaplan.

HI @Ana_M,

I hope this is applicable only for WS admins. If you are a end user, this will work as expected.

You can go thru the below post for more clarity.

The WSA import will disregard DCA, that is the expected behavior.

best to filter it using intregration i.e only update data for relevant period 

 

or 

 

you can import in 2 stages 

1-load data into staging create filtered view by unlocked period 

2-import data from filtered view
