This is a really fantastic & detailed summary of such a new -- and exciting -- additional capability.  As much of a fan of MS-Excel as many of us are, Google Sheets has a whole series of (very) underrated aspects of its own.  

Sidenote:  As a relative newcomer to Anaplan, I was able to try this using the "Financial Reporting Tips & Tricks" sample on the AppHub and it worked immediately, which was just so cool 😎  There are a lot of amazing possibilities for this from the FP&A perspective especially.  Kudos!


Does Google Add-In allow to Pivot and Filter the way it's possible in Excel Add-In? I was only able to connect, but on 'Preview' data format seems to be uneditable. Would appreciate your support.

Kind regards,
