End-User Tips and Tricks

  • If an Excel file with an Anaplan Add-in connection is stored in Google Drive, it can be downloaded without issue. However, if that file is opened and edited in Google Sheets, when it is next downloaded, the Excel file will no longer recognise the Anaplan connections in the Add-in. Workaround: Google Drive will allow you to download older versions of the file. If you download a version from before the edit was made, the Anaplan connections will still work.

What's this bulletin?
It's a regular update about the extensions, directly coming from the development team.

How does it differ from the monthly release post?

Contrary to the release information which covers all the Anaplan products, we focus on the extensions.

Why should I care? How does it impact me?

If you are one of our 1,000+ users of the products, then you might want to read our bulletins as well to be on top of everything that's going on. If you are a Master Anaplanner or on the path to become one, you should definitely be interested in learning this information too.
