Show "Used in Page" reference in Modules Settings

Show "Used in Page" reference in Modules Settings

As a model builder, it would be extremely helpful to have a "Used in Page" reference in the Module Settings to show where a module is used in a page, similar to the Used in Dashboard feature.  This would allow for much more efficient auditing and help tremendously with model cleanup. This is especially important since we an now change or delete a module title in the page, and when you click on "Source module" in the NUX, it does not take you back to the specific module.  Thank you!

It would be great if some dependencies between NUX apps and modules can be shown in a streamlined way.

I find this quite challenging to be shown in the classic building interface...At least in the NUX app to be created some admin dashboards to show which modules are used in every page.

This makes a lot of sense and helps to keep our models clean.

Totally agree. I am cleaning out some old modules and it is hard to know if it is used in new UX. Connection between new UX and underlying modules would be very helpful.

I was just about to create the same one, started working on New UX for the first time a few weeks ago and I'm already missing this feature.

Hi everyone,

We are investigating ways to surface this information via the New Modeling Experience in the future.

Thanks for your feedback and votes on this idea.

Still counting on this feature. Especially when filtering has been invloved.

 

Hope this will be added soon.

 

Thanks,

I am currently experiencing the same pain with trying to search for the modules that belong to each of the 50 pages we have for a client.

 

I found a temporary solution until Anaplan figures out how to make a column to show what NUX pages exist, though it isn't automated, it works. 

 

I finally found an actual use for data tags, I just copied the application page names and pasted them as text into the data tags, and marked each module with the corresponding page name. 

 

It took a while but at least i never have to go through searching 50 pages for modules again 🙂

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the continued support on this item! We aim to launch a new 'Pages' interface in the new modeling experience soon that shows which UX Apps and Pages have been built on top of the current model. An evolution to that experience will include the functionality to show which Modules / Views / Line Items are used on that page in the current model.

In the future as we refresh more of the modeling experience interfaces we will investigate how we can surface the information in the other direction (ie. Module > Pages) as requested here, as the first iteration will be drive from the Page (ie. Page > Modules).

Thanks

  • Its hard to search for the NUX page where a

module is published unless we go into Designer mode and checm in each card.While doing enhancements its is time consuming to have NUX page searched where a module is data source.it would be helpful to have a feature similar to "Used in Dashboards" sort of field in Anaplan

Check out this Idea - similar thought and sounds like it's on the roadmap:
