NOTE: The Central Identity Management (CIM) Phase 2 release previously scheduled for April 24 has been postponed. We’ve listened to feedback and want to ensure that all of our customers have the appropriate time to digest the CIM changes and adjust their processes accordingly.

We are still targeting to transition to Phase 2 in Q2 and will provide a new date as soon as we can. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

Anaplan will be making enhancements to the platform on Saturday, April 24, 2021 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. PDT. 

The platform will be offline during this maintenance window. Once the maintenance is complete, you can resume your work in Anaplan.

This maintenance window will deliver a new set of capabilities designed to further optimize your planning experience. New upcoming features will include the ability to:

  • Perform calculations with User lists
  • Select to ignore all items you don’t want to map when setting up imports
  • Use the Update Current Period action to automate updates of Current Period as a stand alone action and as part of a process
  • See the fields you configure most often in Blueprint first for a more intuitive experience
  • Monitor events when users open a model to meet compliance via audit service logs
  • Access a new set of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) APIs that allows you to change the model mode from offline to online and run multiple synchronizations in parallel.

Plus, look for a New Modeling Experience in early May with an updated look and feel. Anyone interacting with a model will soon be able to opt-in to try out the new experience.
