Using KPI Tile in Design Studio – Learning Hub Exercise

This was the final exercise in the Design Studio course in Learning Hub.  For more on Learning Hub see Getting access & accessing SAP Learning Hub #SAPEducation by Tom Cenens

The first part of the exercise covered using the KPI Tile.  The prerequisite is that you already installed the sample KPI tile in Design Studio.  For more information on how to do that see the SAP Help at SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio 1.2 SP01 – SAP Help Portal Page


The above shows how it looks in run time, where I have the Project Budget, Actuals and Project Budget Balance total amounts all “bound” to the KPI tile.


The above shows the data binding for the total project budget.


Also part of the exercise was setting up the combination dual-axis chart with tool tips.  The tool tips show in the above that the Alterations actuals is the main cause of being over budget.

For some reason I had trouble getting the KPI tile to install and I deviated from the SAP help instructions.  If I have time I will document what I did.
