    • Copy & Paste

Board layout updates

  • When you adjust the height of cards on your boards in design mode, these changes are visible to end users. This is ideal for using text cards as titles for other cards on your boards.
  • When you change the width of columns in grid cards, your changes save and persists between your sessions. This is especially useful if one of your columns is designed for end users to enter text or commentaries into a grid.

Context selector levels

  • When designing a page, you can change the levels of a list that can be selected in a context selector, including time. This makes it easier to create charts and grids, as you don't need to manually hide time summaries.

Plot trailing zeros setting on charts 

  • We have introduced a new setting that enables you to plot trailing zeros on your charts. By default, Anaplan does not plot trailing zeros, as they could be misleading if the data simply hasn't been loaded. However, there are some cases in which you might want to plot trailing zeros in your charts.

Awesome updates. But hoping for more robust additions to formatting capabilities to make the new UX a one stop shop for our corporate reporting. Grid formatting in particular for adding fill colors, bold values, add/edit borders, fix alignment, make things easier and more pleasing to read, etc. We don't keep everything white when delivering it to end users.
