Ability to reference a Line Item generically.

Ability to reference a Line Item generically.

I am requesting the ability to use a generic 'me/myself/self/here' reference in functions that require a Line Item.


An example:

Original:  PREVIOUS(Total Average Balance) + MOVINGSUM(Total Average Balance, -11, -10, AVERAGE) 

New:  PREVIOUS(Here) + MOVINGSUM(Here, -11, -10, AVERAGE)


The benefit of this is: if the Planner wants to reuse this formula on other Line Items they can just copy/paste.  Currently they have to copy/paste outside of Anaplan, use a search/replace to switch the Line Item reference to the new Line Item, and then paste back into the formula of the line item.

I could see this being very helpful, like SELF() function.

In Adaptive, they use syntax 'this' as the key-word.
