Color Differentiate the "Write", "Read", "None" access levels for Roles--> Modules etc.

On larger models, the list of modules, dashboards, actions etc. can become very difficult to sift through.  When setting user role access for these lists in Roles-->Modules, Roles-->Actions etc. it is difficult to notice issues because the whole list becomes just a sea of blue words, all of similar lengths.  

 

It would be helpful to a model builder if Anaplan somehow made the differences stand out more by either changing the text colors, or even better coloring cell's background to show a color based on it's value.  Here are two quick ideas:

I would seriously love something like this. Another idea would be to just replace the word None with a dash or blank - it would make it much easier to pick out the modules that do have access given.

Agree with @NoahJ . It's really hard to see the READ/WRITE/NONE at a glance.

Great idea.

@David_Elston  Would also like to see the User > Actions tab made a bit easier to read rather trying to navigate a sea of ticked and unticked boxes!

Any chance we could add some type of conditional formatting / highlighting to the User Access by Role table?

Right now, I literally copy the table into an Excel template, where the conditional formatting is already active, edit the table there, and then paste it back into Anaplan.

I've already grouped and separated my modules, so that assigning the level of user access is a lot more intuitive.  If I had conditional formatting, that would make my life a lot easier.

 

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Great idea! Managing User Access is one of my least favorite parts of Anaplan because it is so painful, and this is a small thing that would go a long way in easing that pain.

Great idea and shared too by another great mind @David_Elston ;
