When syncing existing ALM models, users will find that the Current Period becomes unset in the Deployed model. This will occur for the first ALM sync after the 8th August Platform Release. The reason for this is due to the Time Label changes that have been introduced and which are documented here: https://help.anaplan.com/anapedia/Content/Modeling/Dimensions/Change-the-fiscal-year-label.htm. The changes will appear in the Comparison Report for the first sync, as shown, as they need to be applied to the Deployed model. After syncing these changes, please ensure you re-set the Current Period in your Deployed model. If you need further assistance please contact email@example.com.

Model history can contain entries saying "Blank Model Change", which can occur for example when changing the SSO access of a user. These could be more informative so we can understand what the change was. Another example - if you are setting a users access, it is usual to copy another users access by selecting an entire row, and pasting it into the user you are giving access. If you have many lists in the model which have selective access, you will end up with a Blank Model Change for each cell you pasted blank into. These should be more descriptive history entries to avoid confusion and/or concern when reviewing the history of changes.

This item has been identified as an outstanding known issue. A workaround is provided until the issue is officially fixed. Issue If a cell containing a value of "NaN" (not a number) is edited to contain an actual number; then using the 'Undo' feature on this cell will change value to "0" (zero) instead of "NaN". The Undo dialog also is incorrect in this instance - it will state the value has been undone back to "NaN". Workaround To workaround the issue, and return the cell value back to "NaN", use the model history to restore the model back to before the change. If this workaround is not suitable in your use case, please contact Support at firstname.lastname@example.org. --- Internal Reference: CORESRV-4007

As many Anaplan users know, running large calculations or large imports/exports can, in certain instances have, a significant memory overhead on the Anaplan service. When this happens the Anaplan service needs to free up memory in order to remain healthy. Some users may have received the "Service Temporarily Unavailable" page in the past, which indicates the server is under particularly heavy load and is working to free up memory.
As part of Anaplan's continued investment in its infrastructure, we are making changes which will affect the behaviour when the above scenario occurs. The "Service Temporarily Unavailable" page will be phased out, and no longer be seen by users. Instead, there will be a different experience, depending on where in the platform you are:
When the service is under heavy load, and you click a model from Launchpad you will not progress past the page shown in the screenshot. If you encounter this screen, please retry accessing your model in a couple of minutes. If this continues, please contact Anaplan Support and provide the workspace and model you are trying to access. A screenshot of what you are encountering will also be useful to help us diagnose.
When the service is under heavy load and you are working in a model, you will see the request load continuously until the service is able to process it. In this case, you will no longer receive an error message and requests will complete in due course, allowing you to continue working with minimal disruption. If you encounter this scenario, please wait a few minutes to allow the service to recover. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Support.
If either of the above scenarios continues for longer than 20 minutes, you may receive a page displaying "504 Gateway Time-out". If this is the case, please contact Support with information on the workspace and model you are working in. Anaplan Support may need to restart your service in which case you could temporarily receive a "502 Bad Gateway" page until the restart completes.

In this release when you add a user for a Single Sign-On (SSO) enabled workspace, the Authentication with Single Sign-on checkbox does not display on the Add User dialog. This option is selected by default when each user is created. If you want the user to be an exception user and the user is not an existing Anaplan user, that user does not receive the correct activation email. A workaround is provided until the issue is fixed: 1. If adding an existing Anaplan user as an exception user: Add the user as normal. In Model Settings, Users, clear the Single Sign-on checkbox for the user that you want to be an exception user. 2. If adding a new Anaplan user as an exception user: Add the user as normal. In Model Settings, Users, clear the Single Sign-on checkbox for the user that you want to be an exception user. Logout of Anaplan and close your browser. Navigate to https://sdp.anaplan.com/frontdoor/login Click Forgot Password. Enter the email address of the user for which you cleared the Single Sign-on checkbox. Click Submit. An activation email is sent to the exception user.
