1. Modeling
  2. Model building recommendations
  3. Name restrictions
  4. Text format restrictions

Text format restrictions prevent potential conflicts in a model.

When you name different areas in your model, do not include:

  • Special characters (for example, punctuation or exclamation marks)
  • Control characters
    Note: You can include CRLF (Carriage Return and Line Feed) characters.
  • Underscores
    Note: You can include underscores within a name (for example, Module_Name), but not at the end or beginning of a name.
  • Icons
  • Emojis

Warning: If you include special characters, icons, or emojis in names, it can negatively impact integration with external systems.


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.
