It would be great to have a function to get current date and time. Timezone settings could be common for all users and maintained in the settings section
That would be great improvement to have, and avoid the somehow complexity of using Anaplan connect for retrieving the current date
This is a must to have functionality. Thanks for sharing this idea.
Would be extremely useful! The workaround for an automated solution is quite painful at the moment!
Currently Anaplan does not have a system date and we either use Anaplan Connect or Integration tool to import the current date.
Do we have any roadmap of including this into our tool
You may want to vote on these to raise them further as a requirement.
It will be extremely useful .We are currently working it out through integrations.
This is a large piece of work and may nuanced behaviours. We will investigate this further for consideration on our longer term roadmap.
I think it would be great if we could even have a function that called on UTC date and time. We could write a formula to convert based on model needs.
This was on the pipeline ready for release around 2018 and then disappeared so seems odd it went to 'needs community support'.
It would be a useful feature. If we could expand the users list to include a locale parameter then you could expand the functionality to give user specific time based dashboard filters. So would be very helpful.
Just implemented another automated process using Informatica connector to get the current date. Granted, it wasn't hard but still seems unnecessary. I second @mcconachie comment. I know Anaplan is in the cloud and as long as we got the UTC time (or Epoch time based on 1/1/1970 UTC) we can suit it to our needs. Hope this becomes a reality. For large implementations, particularly ones where we need to make dynamic decisions about elapsed periods this is a pretty standard business requirement.
