Community and Events

  • Coming up: December 9th - I'll run a product booth about the Extensions at Anaplan Live!. Not another presentation but an opportunity to discuss directly with the product manager about the Excel Add-in, PowerPoint Add-in and Google Sheets Add-on about any topic you're interested in: demos, best practices, questions or roadmap.
  • We also launched a survey about the structure of the documentation for Excel Add-in, to make it easier to find what you're looking for. It's still time to join!

  • The Google Sheets Add-on is only compatible with Self-Service SAML, not classic SSO. New customers are automatically enrolled on Self-Service SAML and are therefore able to use the add-on immediately. Current customers need to be migrated before they can use the add-on, the change is targeted between now and the end of the first quarter of 2021, please reach out to your business partner for more details. Alternatively, those customers can use the username and password authentication method.



What's this bulletin?
It's a monthly update about the extensions, directly coming from the development team. Watch out for the next one at the end of each month.

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.
