What are the benefits?

Model builders can now search, understand, and leverage the full library of calculation functions in Anaplan directly from the formula editor. You'll save time because all the information you need will be right where you're building your model.

Will I have to take any action?

Yes, to access the information, select the new question mark in the toolbar of the formula editor. This opens a pop-up that displays all the functions available to you.

What features are included?
