@Misbah, @JaredDolich - I was talking to another Anaplan newbie like me ( @antonlagergren ) and he had what I think is an interesting idea...developing some "cheat sheets" that would explain the process of say creating a module from a best practice perspective but do so with some visuals. And make it oriented towards a newer Anaplanners...
I am probably not explaining the concept well, but even so, would this be something you would be interested in exploring? Not sure if it fits into Planual or not...
Thanks for the introduction, David! Yes, I had the idea of making some cheat sheets. I've been trying to think of what topics might be most beneficial, anybody have any suggestions? I was thinking possibly a "How to compose a formula", or "How to build a module", step by step. I am definitely open to any suggestions from community members of cheat sheets they think would be beneficial. I think the best topics will be those that take a significant enough amount of steps that having a handy list of "order of operations", might be beneficial.
As for contributing to Planual V2 (or even for use on the cheat sheets) --- I enjoy making instructional design graphics/step by step type designs and have done it for many previous projects. I am including some examples from a Digital Logic Design class I had a few years back. All graphics are created by me just using Paint program. Conveniently, Digital Logic Design deals with module connectivity in an almost identical fashion to how Anaplan models are constructed, from a conceptual standpoint (inputs, outputs, formulas, steps, rule exceptions, best practices, etc).
Please take a look at my documents and let me know if any of this sounds to be of use! 🙂 Feel free to reach out, I am happy to offer my time.
@Misbah well done for the "Planual Explained". It's a great idea that deserves its own section - I'm going the relevant link/info with the rest of the team and slowly catch-up with the series.
Also, great to hear you guys and Anaplan are already working on the v2. FY - does anyone have a rough idea about a targeted date/quarter for the revamped version to be available ? I love the idea of visuals too!
