  3. Upgrade the PowerPoint Add-in version

In the PowerPoint Add-in, you can check for updates to ensure that you're using the most up to date version.

Ensure you're signed into the PowerPoint Add-in.

To check if there are updates to the PowerPoint Add-in:

  1. In the Anaplan tab, select the Help menu.
  2. Select Check for Updates...
    The PowerPoint Add-in Updater dialog displays and indicates if updates are available.
  3. If no updates are available, select OK to return to your presentation.
  4. If an update is available:
  • Select Yes to download and install the update.
    The update downloads and the PowerPoint Add-in Setup Wizard starts.
    Follow the instructions to upgrade the PowerPoint Add-in.
  • Select No to download the update but install later.
    The update downloads, but the PowerPoint Add-in Setup Wizard launches when you close the Add-in.
    Follow the instructions to upgrade the PowerPoint Add-in.
  • Select Cancel to cancel the update.
    In 10 days you're reminded that the update is still available.

When you update the add-in, we recommend you first uninstall the add-in, then install the latest version.

If you upgrade the add-in or install a later version while the older is still installed, the old version might not uninstall properly.


We may update our documentation occasionally, but will only do so in a way that does not negatively affect the features and functionality of the Anaplan service.
