  5. Add Assign actions to a page

Assign actions allow users to assign list items to a selected parent item, for example, to assign sales executives to a region. Add Assign actions as an action button on an action card..

Before you can add Assign actions to a page, they must first be configured in the source model by a workspace administrator.

When you later duplicate an app or page containing Assign actions, your configuration changes in the new page do not affect the Assign actions in the original pages.

Actions are not available on personal pages or report pages.

Add an Assign action

To add an Assign action:

  1. Click Edit this page in the toolbar to open your page in designer mode.
  2. Optionally, add a new card.

    • Edit  on an action card, to add an action.
  4. In the Actions tab, under Add actions, expand the Assign action section.
  5. Toggle right any Assign actions to add them.
  6. When you’re ready, click Publish to make your Assign action available.


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.
