Add flexibility to history export requests for Anaplan models

Add flexibility to history export requests for Anaplan models

As a model builder, I would like to see greater flexibility to history export requests for Anaplan models.

 

Context: The History Export function is critical for audit checks to understand if any particular user activity/imports/processes might have caused a data issue or some connection to break. It is important as part of CoE support to check and analyze export logs to find discrepancies and look for unusual changes within a timeframe.

 

Challenges: The current export request can only be filtered for certain basic criteria such as 24 hours, 7 days or 30 days. This usually leads to huge file sizes (10+ GB for big models) that cannot be opened with standard text editors and makes analysis and checking extremely difficult.

 

Idea Request: Please add additional filtering options to the history export request such as ability to filter by timestamps (from HH:MM:SS-HH:MM:SS) or allowing history view of only a particular process/action/module. Currently, you can view history of a particular data cell but it also has the same basic filter options so additional flexibility would be extremely beneficial for analysis of history logs

This was recently brought up by some of our users as something that would be appreciated. This functionality would allow for a more finite control of looking through the history, especially in models that have large process chains that are only kicked off occasionally. We have at least a few models where this can be lost in the noise when looking at a full day, when a specific timeframe would be more useful to identify a specific action or user who made a change.
