I was very surprised recently when I discovered a limitation to Anaplan's permitted time range.
It may surprise others to know that Anaplan is limited to supporting only 70 Years (20 past and 50 future) and the maximum number of years possible is 90 (using a time range set, as of writing, to 1981 with 90 periods).
I did not expect to find this limitation and while I can understand why it is there, I think there should be a way to extend the range for specific use cases. A client recently needed a model with a very long time range (100+ years) and it was necessary to build fake time to accomplish this (and then a smart way of using a day dimensioned module so we could utilise the previous/next functions).
I can actually think of a number of use cases where this would be the case (insurance for example).
So my suggestion is to simply provide a route for a model builder to extend the model time beyond 70 years.
