We’re excited to introduce Anaplan’s 4th release of 2015!
• PowerPoint add-in
• Dependent dropdowns
• New reporting functions
• Informatica Anaplan Connector
A clear planning pathThe new navigation panel is a first in planning software. It provides you with a clear path to the information you need, even as you switch from one planning endeavor to another. The new navigation is specific to your use case and role, and to your organization’s needs, as opposed to a “one size fits all.”
What’s more, the user experience remains consistent, saving you the trouble of dealing with different UI paradigms. As you would expect from Anaplan, adjusting your navigation to match your evolving needs is something that business users (with the right permissions) can easily do.
Enticing presentations withreal-time plansThe PowerPoint® add-in allows you to present any Anaplan data you need in PowerPoint, while leveraging PowerPoint functionality to create effective presentations. Refresh your PowerPoint template at the click of a button and immediately see the latest plans and KPIs. As part of our Microsoft Office integration, Excel® reports and planning templates built using the Anaplan Excel add-in can now be more easily transferred from one copy of an Anaplan app or model to another, and can be included in applications on the app hub.
Letting your apps and models guide users to the information they needSelecting interrelated data is now even simpler. Dependent dropdowns allow you to limit the values of a dropdown list based on selections from another dropdown list, making interaction on planning and reporting views and forms more rapid. This feature is flexible enough not just for hierarchy-based data, but also for any interrelated data.
New reporting functions let you more easily define KPIs and views for your plans based on ranked and time-dependent data. This gets you more quickly to the right model and to the clear insights.
