User Group FAQ

A User Group is a space for people with similar interests, issues, or objectives to collaborate and share their connected planning journeys. User Groups are often located in the same geographic region and include areas to communicate and work together both virtually and in person.

Virtually, User Groups can communicate within the Anaplan Community all year long by participating in forums, commenting on platform releases, and furthering your Anaplan education. Within User Groups you can find a dedicated space to connect with fellow Anaplanners in your area by asking questions, sharing best practices and learning how others are using the product. 

User Group Meetups provide an opportunity for in-person collaboration with other Anaplan users to discuss your connected planning journey.  To request a Meetup, fill out the request form, and a program manager will respond within two business days to discuss details and confirm. We recommend allowing five weeks to promote your Meetup.


Within every User Group there is an Anaplan lead to aid in answering questions and helping launch meetups. There is also a program manager to help with any general questions or to facilitate in scheduling meetups.

Anaplan wants every User Group Meetup to be a success, which is why we are happy to provide promotional support as well as give advice when setting up your meetup.
