I used Learning Hub materials from Analysis Office to learn more about “Smart Copy” and Exporting Applications to Design Studio from Analysis Office. I don’t think I understood the differences between the two until I used Learning Hub. For more information about Learning Hub see Getting access & accessing SAP Learning Hub #SAPEducation
Smart Copy from Analysis Office will transfer your data source and navigation state.
Creating a web application from Analysis Office will transfer crosstabs, charts, and filter components.
From Analysis Office I can select crosstab, right click and select Smart Copy
Figure 2 shows I create a new application in Design Studio and select Smart Paste
Figure 3 shows the crosstab in Design Studio
Figure 4 shows I have drilled down from Project to WBS and added a conditional format to highlight projects over budget (see first WBS)
After selecting Smart Copy > Paste in Design Studio Figure 5 shows the navigation state stayed when I went from Analysis Office to Design Studio
If I want to see the conditional formatting, I would need to set the Conditional Formatting property to True (Figure 5 it is false)
Creating a Web Application
Figure 6 shows a cross tab and a pivoted waterfall chart in Analysis Office. I click the Create Web Application ribbon in the Tools area.
Figure 7 shows how it looks in Design Studio and the waterfall chart is a horizontal chart in Design Studio.
