Stop the mistake research processing

Stop the mistake research processing

As a Model Builder, I would like to be able to stop the mistake research by using an action button. This processing can be very long when we are building an heavy model (5-10 minutes) and most of the time we already know where is the mistake (format, etc.). That's why we can save a lot of time if we could click to stop the processing to ignore the last modification.

This would be a major improvement for Anaplan. The software is smart enough to recognize there is an error in a formula or formatting (hence the display of the processing box/blue toaster in the first place). Adding in logic that simply stops the process from running in the first place (or gives the user that option) would be awesome. Even in smaller models, we constantly run into errors of 5-10+ minutes for very small mistakes. This adds a huge amount of inefficiency during model builds, especially when multiple users are in the model at the same time potentially making errors that stop everyone else from working.

To expand on my previous comment, this error box (blue toaster) only appears when there is an error in a formula/format/naming convention. If Anaplan is smart enough to recognize an error and trigger the display of this box, then why can it not just stop at that point and save us the 5-10 minutes of backing out an error?
