This blog covers some of the latest new features and enhancements in SAP Analytics Cloud and SAP Digital Boardroom release 2018.08. Please note that the Analytics Cloud Help documentation is updated at the same time as the upgrade to this release, so the links here may not yet reflect what is described below until after the upgrade is complete.
Highlights of this release:
Data Analysis, Stories, and Tables
- Tenant-wide configuration for homepage color and logo
- Formatting the number of decimal places for pie/donut charts
Enter data on leaf members with exception aggregations
Make planning even easier. You can now enter data on leaf members of accounts with exception aggregations such as:
View table of contents in design mode
It doesn’t matter if you’re a Digital Boardroom designer or viewer—you want to be able to understand how all your pages and stories connect! With this new feature, you can find a table of contents that summarizes the relationships and hierarchies among your pages.
Now, by clicking the new Table of Contents button under the View tab, you are provided an entire overview of your Digital Boardroom that you previously would’ve needed to create from scratch.
Filter and refresh usability enhancements
We’ve updated the usability of key features for you in the SAP Analytics Cloud Mobile app! You’ll notice that the filter icon is now updated and we have moved the Share and Refresh buttons out of the submenu.
Hide option for stories, pages, and Digital Boardrooms
Don’t want to see specific story pages or the Digital Boardroom on your Mobile app? No problem. Instead of the existing Set as Hidden button, which will hide pages in View mode and on your mobile device, the new Hide in Mobile button will only hide your pages on mobile.
If all the pages or topics are hidden, the entire story or Digital Boardroom will be hidden from view in mobile.
Data Analysis, Stories and Tables
Tenant–wide configuration for homepage color and logo
Get one step closer to your perfectly customized dashboard. Now, System Administrators can configure the homepage background color, tiles, and logo for all users on a tenant. The System Administrator only needs to save these changes once before all tenant users see them.
Alongside the option to upload your own custom logo, the background color options available include: SAP Analytics Cloud, SAP, Custom, and None. Also, users can override settings or return to the default settings set by the administrator.
Formatting the number of decimal places for pie/donut charts
Story designers can now format the number of decimal places for pie and donut charts! This simple setting can be adjusted in the styling panel and the range is from zero to seven decimal places (However, the default of two decimal points remains.)
Formatting of decimal points for other charts will be coming soon.
