User Experience

  • Open the underlying source module within worksheets: Navigate directly from a UX card to the underlying module in the model to quickly find the data source. This is available for worksheets as well as all other cards for users who have enabled the New Modeling Experience.
  • In-product notifications on mobile: In-product notifications are available in the Anaplan mobile app, so you can stay on top of your discussions from anywhere.

Management Reporting enhancements:

  • Share a report page: Share your report page with other Anaplan users via email through the share a page option. Now you can easily share report pages, boards, and worksheets the same way.
    Once you share the page, the recipient will get:
    • An email where they can simply click a link to go straight to the report.
    • A notification in the toolbar bell.
    • A notification in Slack if their integration is set up. Learn about Slack integration here.
