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.

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?

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.

 No LAG(No, 1, 0) + 1 Factorial LAG(Factorial, 1, 1) * No Fibonacci LAG(Value, 2, 1) + LAG(Value, 1, 0)

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?

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?
