The first Anaplan platform release of 2018 is here! Review our new product enhancements that are sure to optimize your navigation and increase your productivity in the platform.
The options and menus you commonly work with in the platform have been streamlined into a new header bar. Now, you can quickly access the Application menu, identify the name of the model you’re in, and even review your notifications when workspaces are full or nearly full from anywhere in the platform.
Note: The new navigation features are being released in phases for Anaplan customers. As a result, the new navigation features may not be available for all customers at the time of this release.
As a follow-up to the new Users list, a Current User filter may now be applied within the platform. This handy, new filter option defaults to the currently logged in user, and displays data and records directly related to that user.
See the Current User Filter here:

A new Reassign Key button has been added to the Encrypted Workspaces page. Clicking this button allows Encryption Administrators to easily apply new encryption keys to your organization’s workspaces.

The Show History menu now includes the Date Range option, which allows you to view cell changes within a specific date range. This new option complements the other Show History options, which include Last 24 hours, Last 7 days, Last 30 days, and All.
See how this new option functions here:
Learn more about the Show History options in the History Anapedia article.
The button formerly labeled as Cancel on the dashboard toolbar has been re-labeled to Close. This re-labeled button more accurately represents a user exiting the dashboard toolbar editor mode, and displays a Save & Publish window when clicked, which includes options to Save or Discard new changes when they have not yet been saved.
Copy and Paste options have been added to the Context Menu within grids in modules and dashboards. Users may select Copy from the Context Menu to copy up to 10,000 cells. Selecting Paste from the Context Menu reminds users of the keyboard shortcuts that are applicable to your operating system for pasting your data.
Many new reference columns have been added to Model Settings screens, such as General Lists, Modules, and Actions. These new columns will specifically help model builders with streamlining efforts by aiding them in quickly identifying dependencies within models.
These new columns are categorized by “Referenced” and “Used” naming conventions, which indicate hard and soft dependencies, respectively.
There is no longer a limit of 10,000 for the number of groups that the RANK function will process. This enhancement removes the need for workarounds when using the RANK function with groups.
Version 1.4 of the DocuSign for Anaplan integration is now available. This release includes several fixes for the initial General Availability (GA) release.
Note: DocuSign for Anaplan is available only to Premium and Enterprise customers with a Business DocuSign plan or higher.
You can now mark a list as a numbered list on the Configure tab.

72273, 72280, 72664, 78857
Models could become unresponsive if the character encoding of an import file was different from that specified in the File Import Action. A message is now displayed.
If a module's dimensions included a list containing a list subset, making these changes caused a sync error:
|7800, 7944||When you compared two revision tags, all list properties and line items formatted as Time were listed in the Comparison Report.|
The width of the revision tag Description column wasn't sufficient if the browser window was resized.
Making these changes caused a sync error:
Sync error related to changing the list format of a line item.
When importing data between modules where a line item in the source module was renamed, data matching was based on the name of the old line item.
Changes to Breakback status were not synced as expected if you:
If a SELECT function referenced a parent list that has a child production list, creating a model from a revision caused an error.
If the same saved export definition name was used when exporting module A followed by module B, and module A was then deleted, the saved Export Action was no longer available in Model Settings > Actions.
Making these changes caused a sync error:

In some circumstances, importing data across workspaces failed if the resources of the source model were limited by long-running activities performed via the Anaplan API.

Models could become unresponsive if you tried to run an import Action to which your role does not grant you access. A message is now displayed.
In modules that contain large lists (for example, 20 million items) with no top level item, the model could become unresponsive when you sorted by line item.
|44016, 44294||Tabular multiple column exports failed for modules with empty rows (no line items or dimensions on rows).|
|77864, 77872, 77908, 77977, 78249, 78261, 78670, 78928, 79122, 80464, 80918, 81296||When a line item has different dimensions than the module, the wrong list is displayed when filtering.|
