Re: Ask Me Anything!

Is there a way to stamp the current user one a  line item.

The scenario is the user creates a numbered list and in the module, they woulld like to stamp the user who created this.

Re: Ask Me Anything!

This stamp is possible only as a result of import, that puts the name of a user who ran the import into the list.

Excel allows a user to adjust the number of iterative calculations to handle circular references.  How can circular references be managed in Anaplan?

Re: Ask Me Anything!

I know some workaround: you can use time :)
Here you have some examples. If you need some exact number of calculations, you can adjust it by formula or number of periods. Just remember to set up Time as a dimension.

NoLAG(No, 1, 0) + 1
FactorialLAG(Factorial, 1, 1) * No
FibonacciLAG(Value, 2, 1) + LAG(Value, 1, 0)

Re: Ask Me Anything!

How would one handle a ragged people hierarchy using a numbered list ...already applied recursive hierarchy..issues arise such as levels(employees) moving up and down when the parent (manager)transfers is terminated...etc)...What would be the best unique identifier as the code?

Re: Ask Me Anything!

We are in dire need of a "multi-select" type feature so that users are able to do analysis and see rollups of items that don't naturally roll up that way in the hierarchy. It's a huge pain point for our users now and we don't have the ability to change the hierarchy to solve this. Any thoughts/ideas on when that feature might be available?

Re: Ask Me Anything!

Multi-select feature and advanced user filters that won't have a massive impact on performances or model size are very much needed and welcome!
