Bookmark creation in SAP Lumira, Server for BI Platform

SAP Lumira, Server for BI Platform is now supporting bookmark facility. We can bookmark an instance of the story.

SAP Lumira, Server for BI Platform provides you with an option to make changes to the stories in a Lumira document in the story viewer and to store them as Bookmark. These Bookmark are available in the document once created. When you open a document in Lumira story viewer, you can filter data based on your requirement by applying filters. You can then save this state of the document as Bookmark

For example, you have a document which provides information on the populations of various cities around the world. You want to share this information with your colleagues located in various cities. They are only interested in viewing information related to their particular city however. You can share this document with your colleagues, and they can filter data related to cities that interest them and save them as Bookmark. This helps your colleague to avoid creating multiple copies of the document or stories. It also allows them to switch between different Bookmarks and to explore the data that is of interest to them.
