Ability to select versions as a list formatted line item for use in lookup statements

Ability to select versions as a list formatted line item for use in lookup statements

Versions are useful as they allow switchover functionality enabling a user to both enter a forecast on a line and see actuals in the same line item. However, comparing versions to eachother (any version to any other version dynamically) requires a "Versions List" and logic to engage that list with the Version you want to pull with [SELECT:VERSIONS.(verions name here]. If Version could be a format of a line item, then Anaplan reporting out of version would be greatly enhanced as these version formatted line items could be used in Lookup statements.

This was also suggested in previous posts (example 7 FEB 2018, https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Locked-Product-Requests-for/Version-as-option-for-Format-of-a-line-...) , would really be great to have this implemented! And in this post: https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Idea-Exchange/Version-subsets-and-selection-as-a-formats/idc-p/3954...

Please add this?
