Maintenance/Releases Should Not Interfere with Quarter Close

Maintenance/Releases Should Not Interfere with Quarter Close

Anaplan notifies customers of releases/platform maintenance that prevent users from accessing the platform for several hours.


The only ask here is that Anaplan avoid releasing during quarter end (like this upcoming April 6) as many of our users will work on Saturdays to finalize their tasks, many of which are due the Monday after.


Is it possible to avoid down times during month/quarter close?

We would totally agree. It seems like the down times are always during a month end, quarter end, or heavy plan period for us. I recognize that it isn't possible to avoid every heavy period for all customers, but avoiding the first few weeks of a new calendar quarter seems reasonable enough. We have had that request by several of our users.

I wanted to follow up on this to see if there were any further improvements made to this issue. We are also having conflicts with the maintenance/release dates due to critical deadlines in Q3/Q4 for Territory & Quota related purposes.

Following up on this thread over two years later...still have planned outages generally twice per month on Saturdays from 1-5p.m.PT.  Can we get this moved to late Saturday evening/early Sunday a.m. by local time?
