What’s New in SAP Lumira 1.20 (summary)

And here it comes! SAP Lumira 1.20 is coming to you very shortly. Those of you who are attending SAP TechEd and D-Code in Las Vegas might already be having a taste of this release.

This release cost me some donuts and muffins for the developers.  When I look back, I should have doubled the amount of sugar-high bribe. I had a lot of fun with exciting enhancements they delivered in just over a month since Lumira 1.19 release. Imagine how many more features we would get if I doubled the sugar rush.

Here are some highlights of what you can expect to see in this release.

Lumira Desktop has been supporting 8 languages for quite some time now.  In this release we add Polish to the list and support all 9 languages to Lumira Server and Lumira Cloud making sure Lumira harmoniously works as one product.  If you would like to see more languages supported in Lumira, please visit Language support category in Idea Place.

Lumira 1.20 supports a few additional ways to format your numbers.  Continuing from 1.19, you can now add hyperlinks to more objects in your stories and jump to a page within the story.

This release supports conditional formatting of data in the table control. You can highlight, bold, italicize, or change the fonts depending on the rules you defined. Today I used this feature to review the ideas from Idea Place that have more than 15 votes.

You will find various other improvements throughout the product. We hope you enjoy Lumira 1.20 and look forward to hearing your experience. At the current pace of delivery, we are tracking to have another release before the year end.

Have a great week!

Sharon

      Hello, I have a problem upgrading 1.18.0 Build 1096 - I always get a message (attached)and regardless of whether I choose resume or not, it is not updating the application. Any ideas what to do?

      Hmm I have not run into that before. I would recommend try uninstalling manually and then installing the latest version.

      If the problem persists, I would recommend submitting a ticket with installation log file. It sounds like something is hanging in the background.

      Hi Sharon,

      The table behavior is great for conditional formatting !!

      BTW, will you implement this solution to other chart type? (I think point chart should be mandatory because we could show the result in infographic chart directly)

      Best regards

      Hi Alex

      Glad you like it. We plan to support conditional formatting in charts including numeric charts in the future. I saw an entry in Idea Place for Numeric Chart.  It will go through our regular review cycle and be picked up after the voting minimum is reached.

      Great tool and very impressive. Are there any plans soon to have an upgrade to save to PDF perhaps?

      Is that road map available for public consumption? I assume that SAP will enable the storyboard to be published to PDF.

      it's nice to see that SAP Lumira 1.20 came up with conditional and exceptions formatting which is supported by SAP Bex Suite.

      This feature gave one more reason to go for this product.

      Hi,

      Really looking forward for the drill down functionality on charts to multiple level down on the story board this will help to showcase the data from top level to bottom four level down on four different chart.

      My users are expecting this features on the storyboard.

      Thanks
