After the November 14th platform update, Switchover, Edit From, Edit To, and Notes will no longer be updated via an ALM sync. Spoke models will need to be updated individually via an import or the Anaplan UI.
The most optimal way to manage version settings going forward is by setting up module imports from a hub model.
Module imports are preferred over file imports for managing version settings. With file imports you have to be very careful to set up the date format; the format in the file needs to match exactly with the format displayed in the version settings, otherwise, the import will not update the target value. For example, when you export the Versions grid to a file (using CSV or TXT format), the switchover date will be exported as "MMM YY," but if Excel format is used, the format will be “MMM-YY." Similarly, if the CSV or TXT file is opened in Excel and then re-saved, the date format will convert to “MMM-YY”. Switchover date will not update if you re-import the file with this format. The date in the file needs to be in "MMM YY" format without the "-". For this purpose, we recommend that you use a module as a source for the import – see below for examples.
Remember that imports have to be set up in advance, as you cannot set up imports while in Deployed mode.
A: Assume the same switchover date is needed for all spoke models.
B: Assume you need different switchover dates for different target models.
Set the import as production data.
Create a revision tag.
Repeat step 3 for each target model.
