Re: Numbered list

A numbered list permits duplicates as Anaplan creates a unique index which identifies each item as unique.

 

Create a property module for the numbered list and use a property formula to link this to a display name property in the list. 

 

Alternatively, create a form where the user can update the display name property directly as the new list item is being created.

Re: Numbered list

I think I understand the question..

 

Assuming a numbered list and that you're just entering a display name, it'll create another record with the same name. However, you'll see both records with a number in brackets as a suffix, representing the unique numbered list ID behind each of those records.

 

If you're entering codes as well and you re-enter the same code, it'll trigger a model roll back.
