Hi @CommunityMember128217,

 

Yes this is a limitation.

We can't add more than 3 lists in rows or columns.

 

Read this page to understand more about dimensions:

Hello,

 

Can you please share your requirement why you need these many dimension in row section.

 

If possible create a combine list and use the list into the module.

Re: Limitations of the number of lists in rows while crating module

Hi Pramod,

 

I am doing performance test, hence i created randomly 20-30 column(mostly they are independent) in excel, created same number lists and want to add in module in rows, Page option does not suits for my test.

I want to keep around 20 in rows and rest in page then execute dashboard on top of the module.

 

Thanks,
Santosh

@CommunityMember128217 

 

As of today you can't have more than 3 nested dimensions rightly said by @Sorna Raja Prabhu . However that shouldn't stop you from having as many attributes of any list in reporting module as possible. If you really need the attributes for reporting or for exporting purpose you should have system modules ready to get the attributes.

 

Why would you want to add more dimensions in rows to get the attributes. Can you please share the exact requirement.

Hi @CommunityMember128217 

I had the same questions/ concerned raised by @Misbah . Please share the requirements as @parmod.kumar2 suggested.
Sometimes we get stuck on implementing one way while there are other simpler ways.

Also, please keep in mind usability. Having 2 nested lists is already too much and goes against Anaplan's goal of providing the data to the users in small chunks that would allow them to make a decision.

Unless you need the data to be organized that way to create an export to be automatically loaded into your transactional system for example then I'd suggest rethinking the design.
