  3. Key concepts and terminology

Anaplan's redesign of its user experience introduces some new terminology. Understanding this terminology will make the new interface easier to work with.

Dashboard

If you've used Anaplan before, these are the dashboards you've seen when you present data from modules to end users.

The user experience now replaces dashboards with pages. Dashboards still live in Anaplan, so you can continue to use both dashboards and pages at the same time.

Learn about pages.

Page

Pages are used to present data from modules to end users. A page can have one of two layouts: a board or a worksheet. The type of page you use depends on the kind of information you want to present.

Learn about pages.

App

An app is a collection of pages that represent a particular business process. For example, you could have a Budget planning and forecasting app, and a Product inventory and sales app.

Card

A card is an interactive component that you can create and add to a page. You can create text, grid, chart, KPI, action, and image cards. You can save a card to the card template library so that it can be reused.

Card template library

The card template library enables you to create and save cards so they can be reused on different pages.

Category

Categories enable you to organize the pages within an app. You can create any number of categories. 

Designer mode

To make changes to a page, you enter designer mode. Remember to publish your changes to ensure they are not lost. To save the changes you make in designer mode, click Publish
