New UX - Ability to publish ‘Other Actions’ directly as an action cards.

New UX - Ability to publish ‘Other Actions’ directly as an action cards.

Being a Page Builder, I would like to be able to publish other actions as a card, not only Imports/Exports/Processes/Forms.

 

Currently, we don't have the equivalent of "Assign" action. As well as Copy Branch or delete a branch.

Copy Branch action is heavily used by our model. It is used when users want to copy down a line rather than create a new line and manually entering all the attributes.

Not having this feature in NUX users are reluctant to move onto NUX. Therefore had to find a workaround for now but much appreciate this feature is included in the upgrade pipeline.

Indeed it would be really useful to have the Copy branch functionality available in the NUX. It would be even better if we could let the user input the Code for the new member of the list too!

@Miran - worth merging with this one: https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Idea-Exchange/New-UX-Ability-to-publish-Other-Actions-directly-as-a...

 

@michael_park - looks like it's on the roadmap: https://community.anaplan.com/t5/Anaplan-Platform/Adding-numbered-list-actions-in-Anaplan-new-UX/m-p..., out of interest what was your workaround?

@Noemi.andres - do you mean when creating the parent or the child (ie the copied branch), if the former can do this using the forms, if the latter then we've always had it as parentcode_childcode

Hi all.

I wanted to share a quick update on this request:

  1. Assign Action in the UX is progressing well and we should be able to share more news on when this will release in the next few weeks.
  2. We're lining up Copy Branch as the next action to attack and would love to chat with anyone who's waiting on this feature or is able to share a quick demo of current processes so we can make sure our new implementation does exactly what you need it to do

If you're able to help, then please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly.

Thanks.

Dave.

We've now delivered support for both the Assign action and the Assign Only action within the UX. I'll keep this Idea open for the time being as it references other action types but hopefully this unlocks some potential for you.
