RE: datetime

Hi Herman, If I understand your question, are you trying to replicate something like Excel's NOW or TODAY formula? As far as I know, there is no such formula yet in Anaplan. Pressing an action button can produce different results depending on the Action dedicated for that button. I know someone created a workaround for this by referring to Excel using Anaplan Connect. The idea is to copy the result of NOW or TODAY function from Excel to Anaplan as a result of that Action button. Not sure if this is what you are looking for. Regards, Leo
