Numbered lists to add display name by default

Numbered lists to add display name by default

I think it would save a lot of time during initial model setup if the following actions happened when a model builder checks Numbered List within the general lists panel.

  1. New property within checked list created called Display Name.
  2. Display Name property format set to text.
  3. (Potential) Set Display Name property formula to CODE(ITEM(List Name)).
  4. Display Name in general lists panel set to Display Name property just created.

I think items 1, 2, and 4 and all best practice and should be used universally, as they drive consistency and usability in our models. I follow these steps for each numbered list I create so if Anaplan did this automatically it would save a lot of time.

Definitely agree but point 3 can be tricky since which list name would you have? I think formula can be blank since sometimes we just load display name as a text directly in list or module and reference the module.lineitem in formula
