Screen Shot 2019-11-06 at 10.31.54 AM.pngThe Anaplan Community is gearing up for an impressive change! We know you want even more valuable content and better ways to connect with Anaplanners around the world, so we've created just that. When you log in during the evening of November 21, you'll experience a new Anaplan Community! Don't worry, all the things you loved about the old design—such as Best Practices, Forums, and the Idea Exchange—will still be there...but in an easier-to-navigate way.

What's Changing?

New and Improved Navigation

The Community site will have an enhanced design layout that will provide a better user experience. Top-level navigation—such as Best Practices and Idea Exchange—will be easier to find, and overall navigation will be more intuitive. You'll also find it easier to create your content and connect with Community members! 

Streamlined Ideas Exchange Experience

The Idea Exchange has always been the place to share your ideas and rate other Anaplanners' ideas. These ideas are monitored and may eventually be implemented to improve the Anaplan platform or Community. The new page allows you to easily filter ideas by labels (such as modeling, training, and data integrations) as well as statuses (such as new idea, needs support, and under investigation), and see if others have suggested your idea.

Mobile-Friendly and Responsive Design

You've asked and we listened! The new Community design will be mobile-friendly as well as responsive. This means easier navigation on any type of computer screen as well as easy access from your mobile device.

Introducing the User Directory

Our members want to connect, and we've made it easier to do so! You will be able to visit the user directory to easily connect with individuals in the Anaplan Community. You can search for individuals by name, user name, location, rank, and role.

'Ask the Community' Widget

In the spirit of Connected Planning, we want you to easily stay connected to all things Anaplan. A new 'Ask the Community' drop down menu will provide one-click navigation to popular Community stops. You can easily Ask the Community a question, start a discussion in the platform forum, suggest an idea, and get help with training. 

These are just some of the new features you'll notice in the Community. With nearly 50,000 members—and growing—the Community is here to empower you as you navigate your Connected Planning journey! 

Are you excited about the redesign? Leave us a comment, and let us know what you think.

Excellent news on mobile responsiveness - it'll be great being able to read and consume without having to wait to get onto a full-size screen!

Wow 50,000 members now that is definitely a great achievement!

I can't wait to see the new improved navigation! some areas of the community page are difficult to find if you don't know where to look so this will be a great addition!

The 'ask the community' widget is a great idea! 

Can't wait for the release!
