Use Anaplan for Microsoft 365 to access your Anaplan card data in Microsoft 365.

You can insert grid cards and chart cards as data in Excel.  You cannot insert data from custom views. This ensures that data remains private, as page builders can choose to hide data in a custom view. 

You cannot insert cards as data in Word or PowerPoint documents. 

To insert a card in the add-in, you must save it as a card template in the UX.

List-formatted line items do not show as dropdown lists in the add-in. 

To connect to modules and saved views, instead of cards, use the Excel Add-in or PowerPoint Add-in.
