This document was created to enumerate the new things added in BI Launch Pad 4.1


SAP Jam was added as a collaboration option in Business Intelligence (BI) launch pad.

When integrated, SAP Jam adds social media and collaboration features to BI launch pad.

Collaboration improvements

With the addition of SAP Jam, BI launch pad supports two collaboration options.

Your administrator must configure your collaboration application in the Central Management Console (CMC) before you can use it.

The following enhancements are supported by both collaboration applications:

  • New viewer options
  • Improved integration with BI launch pad
  • New access rights
  • Add comments to a feed when opening a document or instance via an OpenDocument link

Open the details panel in any viewer

You can open the details panel from anywhere in BI launch pad and in a viewer when using an OpenDocument link.

      Hosted on the web, SAP Jam or SAP StreamWork adds collaborative decision-making and social media to BI Launch Pad.

      You can use collaboration to post comments on documents and instances and view comments posted by other SAP JAM or SAP StreamWork users about public documents.

      It’s not a copy, the aim of this document is to explain the new features of the BI Launch Pad 4.1, and the new features of future SP and patch for BI 4.1.

    While this seems like a good option to have, I want to find a way to disable it if I don’t need it. I can’t seem to find any on our new BI 4.1 SP02 deployment. We do a lot of dashboard and webi reporting using opendoc and we don’t want our users to see this option, since we don’t use the description field on our content.

    Is there any way to disable this?
