Ignoring some columns when mapping timescale through column headers

Ignoring some columns when mapping timescale through column headers

When we get a source file with time in the columns it is very common to have columns that are not relevant for the mapping. As time usually requires using an "automatic" mapping it is quite inconvenient that columns that are not relevant are processed as a FAILURA in Anaplan. It would be fantastic to have the option to ignore these so users can identify actual errors in this case.

 

Below is an example of an error that I believe shouldnt be an error:

Also, important to refer that some discussion about this issue has happened in the post below raised by @aakash

Also, these irrelevant columns can be a problem if they have no column header:

I hope this idea makes it to the roadmap
