Question Does the Anaplan Community support RSS feeds?  Why do RSS feeds not work in Chrome?   Answer The Anaplan Community does support RSS!  Most current browsers have native support for RSS feeds in which RSS feeds will work without any additional software or configuration, but Chrome does not offer this functionality.  If you would like to use the RSS functionality with Chrome (or enhance the RSS functionality in another browser), you will want to get an extension/add-on for the browser that will perform this.   For Chrome, see RSS Feed Reader or Feedly For Firefox, see this Firefox article or you can use Feedly For Internet Explore, see this Microsoft article For Safari, see this Apple article

A user's Community experience is improved when they feel like they have a personal connection of some kind to the people with whom they are interacting. The Anaplan Community team strongly advises (and in some cases requires) updating your personal information from the defaults provided upon registration.  These quick guides will help you to update your profile, edit your bio, and customize your Community subscriptions.  To begin, click on your profile picture / Community avatar to access your Anaplan Community profile, settings, subscriptions, and more. My Profile On the My Profile page, you can quickly view Community user activity, achievements, engagement, and contributions. Profile Image To update your profile image, begin by clicking the Edit icon (the small pencil) next to your current image. Using the pop-up box, upload an image of yourself from your computer. (While your photo does not need to be a professional headshot, we recommend making it an image of yourself—especially if you will be contributing content to the Community. Either way, please ensure it is suitable for public use.) Resize the photo as needed using the cropping tool provided. Follow the instructions to crop or resize your image as needed before saving. This needs to be done for both your standard image as well as the smaller thumbnail version.  My Settings My settings allows each member to update and control their Community accounts. Personal Bio To update your personal bio, begin by clicking Personal Information in the Personal tab.  Complete the form with as much information as you are willing to share publicly. If you will be contributing content to the Community, this should include first name, last name, title, and location of the office where you work (alternately, you could put your company information in this field). You can include an optional biography, which should be short (1-2 sentences or phrases) and should describe your experience and/or areas of expertise (e.g., "subject matter expert for Optimizer and Data Integration" or "seven-year Anaplan model-builder;" click   here   or   here   for more examples). Click Save. Next, click the Preferences   tab, then click Privacy.  In the Show private information in profile to section, select All. (This will enable Community users to see your full name and bio; otherwise this information will not be visible!) Click Save.  My Subscriptions After subscribing to areas of the Community, you can manage your subscriptions preferences and notifications here.

Guidelines Before submitting a new idea, start your journey by searching the Idea Exchange—it may save you time! You may come across a similar idea that’s already active in the Idea Exchange with an up-to-date Status, multiple kudos, and maybe even some recent comments. Duplicate ideas will be frozen, and the author and all other viewers will be directed to the original idea posting. If your idea has already been posted, you should encourage the idea by using the tips in the Participating in the Idea Exchange article. If you determine that your idea has not yet been posted, click the Suggest an idea button within the Idea Exchange to draft your new idea.   Documenting your idea is simple, using the New Idea form:   As a best practice, try to write your idea or suggestion in the following format: Title: Make this short and concise. Try to use a few words here instead of a full sentence. Description: This should summarize your idea by using the following sentence: As a [type of user], I want to [have/do something], so that [I receive this benefit]. Example: “As an author of a new idea, I want to have multiple text color options so that I may highlight specific areas of my idea to better separate them from others.” Example of Enhancement: This should provide suggested solutions or acceptance criteria for your idea using the following sentence: I’ll know this is successful when [specific criteria is met]. Example:  “I’ll know this is successful when I am able to change the color of text to something other than the default black when authoring a new idea.” Benefit / Impact: This should highlight the expected benefit(s) to your business process or user experience if this idea is incorporated. Describe how you are doing things today and the challenges you are facing. Additional items you may want to include in your idea are: A suggested timeframe, deadline, or overall priority level. Additional context that better establishes your idea. Screenshots, images, short videos, flow charts, and other visual aids. External examples of this same idea, such as a feature you’ve used elsewhere. Don’t forget your labels! Labels Labels can be used to categorize your idea.  You can choose one or multiple labels to use within your idea.  This helps other Anaplan users discover and search for your idea.  Not sure which labels to use?  Have no fear! Choose the label(s) that you think best fit your idea, and the Anaplan team will add additional labels as necessary as we review your idea. Statuses Once new ideas have been submitted to the Idea Exchange, they’ll go through a series of Statuses, which are used to indicate what is happening to the new idea: New: This idea has recently been added to the Idea Exchange and has not yet been addressed by the Anaplan team. Promote ideas in this status by giving them kudos, and even commenting on ideas that you’re passionate about. Acknowledged: This status indicates that a member of the Anaplan Community team has performed an initial review of this idea, that it meets the Community guidelines, and that it is a fully structured idea. Needs Info: This is used to identify ideas that may need a further explanation for the Community and Anaplan team to better understand what is being suggested. Look for a follow-up in the idea’s comments if this status is present, and be sure to respond if it’s your idea! Investigating: The Anaplan team is reviewing the idea and determining how this will fit into the future of Anaplan and the Anaplan platform. We can't provide a timeline, but be sure to check back often and subscribe to receive status and comment updates. Considered for Future Roadmap: Good idea! The idea is under consideration to be part of our long-term roadmap. No development has started, so we cannot provide a timeline for release, but please subscribe to receive updates as we progress. Please note: Roadmap plans are always subject to change. Customers should make their purchase decisions on features that are already available. On Roadmap: Good news! This idea is now on our short-term roadmap. Be sure to check back often and subscribe to receive status and comment updates as we start developing it. Please note: Roadmap plans are always subject to change. Customers should make their purchase decisions on features that are already available. Delivered: We did it! Your idea has become reality and has recently been delivered. Most commonly, delivered ideas will be highlighted in a platform release, but be sure to check the idea comments for a final announcement from the Anaplan team about the idea’s release. Not Planned:   Unfortunately, the idea does not fit the current Anaplan roadmap. This may happen for a variety of   reasons. The Anaplan team will do their best to inform you and the rest of the   Community in the idea's comments as to why it   was declined. Thanks again for posting, and be sure to stay active in the Idea Exchange to promote other users' ideas. Evaluation Criteria Anaplan regularly evaluates and prioritizes ideas to incorporate into the product development roadmap, but we are unable to make any comitments as to if, or when, an idea will be developed. We evaluate ideas based on the following criteria and do our best to provide feedback. You may receive feedback on your submission from our Product Management team in the form of status changes and follow up comments.   Submission Criteria Description 1.   Reach of Impact How many customers would benefit? How often would they use the suggested feature? 2.   Roadmap Fit Does this fit strategically within our current product/service offerings? 3.   Community feedback Is this idea getting noticed (via recent votes/comments/kudos)? Does the idea have many kudos? 4.   Feasibility How long will it take to implement the idea?
