• 2 years of Anaplan New UX

It is already 2 years ago that we unboxed the NUX (new user experience) in Anaplan. Since that time, many new functionalities have been added, whereby the user experience is constantly evolving/improving, and even the NMX (new model building experience) arrived. But where do we stand now? Time to re-evaluate.

Some transition facts:

90% of our clients switched to the Anaplan NUX with our help, and 100% of our new clients started in NUX. This month (November 22) Anaplan set the NMX (model back-end) as the default model building experience for all of their clients. In the last 2 years, we helped a lot of our clients in the transition to the NUX. Only a handful of customer models have not migrated yet, but if it is up to us, that is about to change.


  • Intuitive and clearer dashboards
  • Better pivot, filter and export options
  • Greater independence of teams through personal pages
  • Page selectors centralized on top of the page for all grids
  • No need to refresh anymore

Who would not want that?

The perfect change?

Of course, as with all new things, there are things that we have to get used to and that can simply be improved. The biggest point of improvement that we get back from our clients is that the space on a page is not efficiently used. The dashboards are easier on the eyes, but the downside is that less information can be displayed. This could be improved by giving page builders more flexibility in adjusting the width and height of columns.

Also, not all functionality from the old UX can already be found in the NUX. For example, lists cannot be published and the copy branch function does not yet work.

Fortunately, Anaplan is improving its NUX functionality rapidly. What has been improved in the last year, and what improvements are next?

Recent improvements Anaplan NUX

  • Synchronized scrolling for different elements within the dashboard
  • Text in cards can be changed within the card itself and can also be formatted. Moreover, text can also be made dynamic
  • Markers in graphs can be removed
  • Collaboration functionality in the management reporting module

Upcoming improvements

  • Drive the “clickability” of action buttons with (formula driven) booleans (massive improvement in workflow functionality).
  • And many more. Want to stay updated? Join the Anaplan Community for the latest releases.

In conclusion, we can say that the basis is very solid and that the way of working is much more pleasant, cleaner, and more user-friendly than in the old UX. Together with our customers, we continue to strive for improvements, but in the knowledge that Anaplan continues to develop quickly, we think the transition to the NUX is of great added value!
