Hi Lauren,

 

I don't think it is possible to build this easy way as Anaplan does not have formula to randomly pick up a number and all new inputs are calculated as soon as new cell value is saved.

 

What you can do is sort of illusion of randomness. It can be achieved by e.g. creating couple of inputs items which are run through couple of conditional formulas, modulus function etc. basing on what your input values are.

 

But as metioned it won't be real random.

Is there an example of how this has been done?
