Copy Paste Formatting into other Tools (Excel)

 

Description: Much like this example, Anaplan formats in odd and weird ways when moving into Excel. Numbers being copied pasted into excel should retain a numbered format instead of scientific notation when pasted into Excel.

 

Example of Enhancement: Values copied from Anaplan have a format attached to the value in the cell, as either Number or Text (date doesn't translate well between Anaplan and Excel either! MMM-YY doesn't copy back and forth)

Benefit / Impact: Instead of having to translate all of your dates fields into Text when copy pasting, manually re-entering dates, having translated values (numbers that move to a text formatted cell type in excel) doesn't cause scientific notation to be kept for larger values. This is evident of a broader issue with regards to translating values between Anaplan and other platforms that should be resolved.
