Description: It would very useful to have an option to add subsets to the User list. We have certain modules that would only ever apply to a few Users, but we are forced to add the entire User list as a dimension and are using way too much space. In some cases we are deterred from using that feature as a result. If we could subset our list down to the handful that have access to the module, we could save on space. Example of Enhancement: Would work in same fashion as standard list subsets. Benefit/Impact: Allows flexibility in model building and avoids sparcity.

Description: As a model builder, there are plenty of times where formulas or references to other modules are incorrect either by mistake/typo or due to lack of understanding formula syntax. Based on our model size, we have to allow ample time for Anaplan to return the error summary, even in test models. It would be great to have an alert when typing a formula (based on line item formatting, module structure, etc.) that helps us rewrite or reconsider the final formula before trying to push it through and watching the model 'spin' for a while.
Example of Enhancement: When line item formatting is inconsistent with the end formula/reference, the border of the formula bar will remain red. This should pick up on basic errors such as mismatched lists or typos. Once the red border is eliminated, the model builder is assured this formula will be processed correctly.
Benefit/Impact: The benefit here would be to reduce time waiting for errors to populate and would help guide all model builders in writing formulas correctly.
