Current Date and Time

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

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 is we could even have a function that called on UTC date and time. We could write a formula to convert based on model needs.
