Mark my Word because I’m about to make a Power(ful)Point! When you deploy the SAP Analytics Cloud App through Microsoft Intune, you can now push default supported configurations, allowing you to go deeper than the Surface. This is Excel(lent) for logging in, making it much faster to see your data when you’re away from the Office. With these Windows into your analytics on the go, you can live life on the Edge without having to worry about taking OneNote or any notes, it’s all in the palm of your hand! When it comes to SAP Analytics Cloud Mobile, the Outlook is good 😉
With widgets and cells that are planning enabled, you can now enable or disable a user’s ability to leave comments. Several new API calls have been added as well, including the ability to getAllComments() or just one comment, and to removeAllComments() or just one comment. This will open many more collaborative opportunities within Analytics Designer!
When using the applyText() scripting API, you’ll now be able to force line breaks using the “\n” character combination. Because as Obi-Wan always says, “May the Force be with properly formatted text boxes…”
