@MagaliP and I are looking to run the next event on November 12th at a new time of 3pm and we are going to try and change the format ever so slightly.
Why are we making this change?
With the new time we are hoping that the earlier time (with advanced notice) gives more people a chance to attend and even give some of our regulars a chance to have their evening meals in peace!
What are the changes to the format?
This is less impactful. We have decided to base the modellers forum around the below link which shows product releases and we will ask 3 questions which we would like answered in the forum in advance of the virtual meet up so that we can discuss during the call.
We feel like structure will help modellers across the UK help keep up to date with features and best practice. In addition to this we will try and obtain the relevant product managers to speak with you directly if we have a consensus across the questions.
Will anything be the same?
Of course it will. You have Magali and I being as enthusiastic as ever and we promise try and fit in the original problem solving aspect of the meet up.
This is so exciting, I look forward to this new format!
I'll start with my answers (who said I couldn't, I too use Anaplan 😀).
1. I am so excited about the dashboard import tool which has been released, I haven't used it yet though because I already built all my pages in the UX directly, but I look forward to our customers migrating the existing dashboards. Another great reason to get started with the UX: the Office Add-ins will integrate with the UX, it's officially in our roadmap!
2. I have used the latest version 4.0 of the Excel Add-in (I guess there's no surprise here as I am the Product Manager) which was made available to all users in phase 3 of the release at the beginning of October. Maybe that's an idea of challenge to get you to try it out!
3. KPI card conditional formatting is the functionality I was waiting for so I'll implement it soon 👏

We too have dropped anchor on the ordering functionality. I don't even mind that it's only for WA as have realised that it's something that wouldn't necessarily be run when data is loaded but as part of a different process.
I'm particularly excited like you are @MagaliP about dashboard importing. Loads of Classic UX models and not really wanting to spend ages bringing across the core board content.
Then the next thing we'll probably look at is the graph scale resizing piece. That will definitely make a small but noticeable difference to our visualisation.
Looking forward to the discussion in a few weeks and on here too!
