Working with Hyperlinks in SAP Lumira Infographic
This topic is to demonstrate how to navigate between pages in Lumira Infographic section using plain texts/images and also to access detail report which is in BI Platform. These are some good features to know and explore.
Create an Infographic containing 3 pages (for ex) and drag drop different visualizations as shown below:
Select Sample Text as shown below:
Drag and drop the sample text object and place it on infographic page and give proper name here I say <First> ie. to navigate to first page. Create a hyperlink by clicking Text Actions as shown below:
In Link to option select Page and set the option to First Page
Follow the same above steps for creating Next, Previous and Last hyperlinks as well and finally it should look like as below:
Test these hyperlinks in preview mode as shown below:
Now, lets achieve the same thing using images which looks far better:
1. I have uploaded navigation icons
2. Used these icons as hyperlinks to navigate pages.
Here see below
Set page options for each image.
Finally test these images in preview mode.
Note: When we use images we could see tool-tip appears but however for text objects I can’t see the tool-tip.
We could also call/refresh the report which is in BI Platform (most cases detail report) using opendoc function. In this case hyperlink should be created as External URL as shown below:
Some pain areas:
1. If I create navigation hyperlinks it is currently available only for that page. It is tedious effort to do same repetitive steps for all pages. Lets say I have 100 pages, it is very very painful. May be SAP should think of having a <Apply to All Pages> option?
2. Tool-tip for text objects does not work
I was part of 1.20 Partner Test and gave many suggestions and issues to be resolved mainly at Infographic section. I believe these issues will be resolved and i wish features would be seen very soon.
Finally I would say Lumira is maturing day by day and I would love to share as I get more updates.
Hope this helps.
