User Experience

  • Usability - we have increased the width of the list item selector in grid editors, filters and context selectors enabling you to see a large hierarchy more easily.

Management Reporting

  • Variance Reporting: Management Reporting now offers “Variance Reporting” for quick variance analysis as absolute value or percentage. This enables face-of-the report variance calculations without modifying the underlying model, further democratizing access to pixel-perfect reporting, all within Anaplan.

  • Exporting Management Reports to PDF: We’ve made improvements to the PDF export capability for Management Reports so you can now export up to 300 slides at a time. You can continue to work seamlessly in Anaplan while an export is processing and receive a notification when the export is ready to download. We have also added the ability for the user to disable the pdf export on the report page if required.

  • DynamicText card updates: - we have added support for bullets in the dynamic text card and added the option to set the text size directly rather than using text styles

  • Additional page size support: - we have added support for two additional page size so you can now choose sizes that match the default for Powerpoint

    • Standard (4:3)

    • Widescreen (16:9)

Allowing our users to directly pulling related data and attributes from AWS S3 and Azure Blob via Cloudworks into PlanIQ, surpassing the need to bring the data into Anaplan.
