What's New: February 13, 2021

We have successfully made platform enhancements on Saturday, February 13th, 2021, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. PST. 

  • Action Last Run Timestamp: You can now see the date and time for when an Action was run on the Actions tab.  This information gives you more visibility of a model’s processes, and can help you to troubleshoot issues with actions and processes. 

  • Order a list by date or time period: You can now order a list by date or time period formatted line items. Previously, you could order a list only by text or number formatted line items.

  • Export formatted numbers: Model builders and workspace administrators can now select an option to export formatted numbers for unformatted file types: text, CSV, unformatted XLS, and XML. This makes it easier to use the data in other applications. The exported numbers match the number of decimal places set up for the line item, and use "." as the decimal indicator. No thousand separator is used, and custom units and currency symbols are not exported.

  • Application Life Management (ALM) performance optimization: We have optimized the Compare and Synchronize steps of the ALM process. You could see significant performance improvements when you compare revisions or run a model synchronization.

When you access many other models and each time adjust the width of the Contents panel, a blocking error Request header too large may be displayed when you then open another model. Workaround until fixed: remove the slideout-state cookie then access Anaplan again.
