  4. Clone a connection

You can clone an Anaplan connection to duplicate the connection and copy cell data into a new worksheet. If you edit the data in the new worksheet, the data in the original worksheet remains unchanged.

The Google Sheets Add-on is in early access (EA), and is only available to participants of the EA program.

Find out more about early access or how to register your interest in our current EA programs.

You must be signed in to the Google Sheets Add-on to clone a connection.

You must be the connection owner to clone a connection.

If you are not the connection owner, the Add-on features are greyed out, and a message displays the name of the connection owner in the sidebar. If you only want to edit the data in a new worksheet, ask the connection owner to clone the connection. If you want to use Add-on functions, you can create a new connection in another spreadsheet.

Note: if you clone a read-write connection, the new connection is also read-write. You can use the cloned read-write connection to update Anaplan. If you want to create a read-only connection with the same connection details, create a new connection in another worksheet.

To clone a connection:

  1. Go to the Anaplan sidebar.
  2. Click Clone connection.
    The Anaplan connection and cell data copy into a new worksheet.

The new worksheet is given the same name as the original worksheet, with a number at the end — Sheet name (2). You can rename the cloned worksheet at any time without affecting the connection.
