The Anaplan Platform is updated regularly to ensure that users get the very latest features and fixes, and that the platform remains secure. To make sure you're notified when the platform will be updated, subscribe to the Anaplan Community Platform Releases Blog.
The Anaplan Continuous Release process is managed as follows:
Scheduled maintenance windows: These generally occur every other Saturday from 1:00p.m. to 5:00p.m. PDT, in alignment with the contractual obligations of Anaplan for customers and partners, and are communicated at least one week in advance. If an update is likely to affect production environments, details are provided in advance via email, and a Coming Soon article lists proposed new or amended features. During the update, a new platform release is deployed. After the update, you'll be notified of the completion and release notes describing the update are published as a What’s New post.
Immediate updates (hotfixes): These can happen at any time but we aim to keep them to a minimum to avoid unnecessary disruption. Hotfixes are generally required for bugs that affect production environments, or urgent infrastructure or security fixes. If a hotfix requires a period of platform downtime, you will receive an email notification in advance.
To monitor availability of the platform and track announcements about upcoming releases, follow status.anaplan.com.
To receive regular information about scheduled maintenance windows, subscribe to the Platform Releases blog.
Welcome to the Platform release calendar, providing visibility into forthcoming and previous releases, with links to associated content to get you started with new features.
Please note that for future releases, while we aim to provide as much information as possible to enable you to prepare for scheduled maintenance and platform downtime, detail on what's coming and the scheduled dates for each release are subject to change at any time.
As always, we welcome your feedback and thank you for helping us to make Anaplan better!

Does the Anaplan Community support RSS feeds? Why do RSS feeds not work in Chrome?
The Anaplan Community does support RSS! Most current browsers have native support for RSS feeds in which RSS feeds will work without any additional software or configuration, but Chrome does not offer this functionality. If you would like to use the RSS functionality with Chrome (or enhance the RSS functionality in another browser), you will want to get an extension/add-on for the browser that will perform this.
For Chrome, see RSS Feed Reader or Feedly
For Firefox, see this Firefox article or you can use Feedly
For Internet Explore, see this Microsoft article
For Safari, see this Apple article
