ℹ️Phased release information: We roll out our add-in in phases. This is not a beta release (in a sandbox environment with a test version) nor early access (with regular catch-ups with the development team) but this is a normal release under the standard Anaplan T&Cs and support process (contacting Anaplan Support). Note that the new versions have been thoroughly tested and can be used on your models and in your regular activities.
Phase 1 enables members of the feedback group to try out the add-in first. Any customer/partner/employee can join.
In phase 2, the add-in becomes available for download for all users
In phase 3, all users receive a notification in Microsoft Office that a new version is available. If you choose to upgrade, note that the installation may not happen immediately, but only when you close Excel.
There are about 3 weeks between phases, the target dates for phases 2 and 3 may change.
You can use any of the non-deprecated versions below, although we recommend using the latest ones to benefit from the newest functionalities. Should we deprecate some versions in the future, we will contact you directly and update this page.
Excel Add-in 4.4: "Authentication via Universal Login"
Our Excel Add-in 4.4 enables you to be authenticated using Universal Login.
Authentication in Excel using Anaplan Universal Login
Anaplan Excel Add-in now supports authentication via Universal Login, allowing you to use Self Service SAML as part of your authentication process. Please remember that Universal Login with SSO does not work for classic/legacy SSO connections.
We have also resolved a number of issues improving the usability of the Add-in.
Our Excel Add-in 4.3 enables you to be more productive by rolling out the add-in more quickly to your users and working with multiple workbooks.
Easier enterprise roll-out
You can now install for multiple users thanks to our dedicated msi installer, allowing your IT teams to deploy the add-in seamlessly to all your users - including via SCCM [user guide]
Work with multiple workbooks
You can now work on multiple (duplicate) workbooks at the same time, enabling you to work more productively across different files. To duplicate a workbook, just close your workbook and take a copy, or simply "save as".
Our Excel Add-in 4.0 makes it easier for anyone to install and upgrade the Excel Add-in, access the right information at the right time, and work more efficiently. We have summarized the highlights in a blog post, created a short walk-through video and explained our approach in this other blog post.
