Validation Button in Formula Editor

Validation Button in Formula Editor

I would like to request validation functionality be added to the formula editor in Anaplan. On large models if a formula is entered incorrectly you can wait 8, 10, 12 minutes for Anaplan to process the incorrect formula. I have seen other application in this space have a validation button for formulas which allow you to click a button and have your formula verify against a certain number of records maybe 10, 50, 100. This would be a great improvement value for the customer and save developers loads of wait time on big models.

Another vote for this functionality, this could cut down on those large model toasters.

FYI, I have created a browser extension to aid with this. It performs live syntax and semantic checking, among other things like code completion etc. I've written about it here.

I think this would be complimented by the following idea as well:
