This functionality would be very useful to be able to share the same line items between different entities who don't use the same name. For example in the case of user filters for a product attribute which doesn't have the same name between two different brands. This would avoid having to duplicate line items and dashboards per brand, because they don't use the same terminology.

Hi Johan, could you not do this with Anaplan Connect and Versions? Step 1: Create a separate regression model with import processes to bring in values from the source model before any changes were made. These processes would import the data into a pre change version. Step 2: Create a second set of processes to import data from the source model. These processes would import the data into a second, post change version. Step 3: Create a third version used to calculate the variance between the Pre and Post change versions. Dashboards could then be set up at summary and detail levels to identify where any variances between the two versions occur. I assume we would only need Output data to be present to validate the changes and no calculations would be required so this should limit the size of the model for the customer. Additionally if Anaplan connect was used processes could be scheduled to run as required once changes had been pushed out, or triggered manually by triggering the processes at the required point.
