as for the previous feature packs, you can see what has been developed in 16.08 regarding the HTML5 UI in the following video: SAP Business ByDesign HTML5 UI 16.08 – YouTube
In order to try the new UI out on your own in YOUR OWN test tenant (it does not work in productive tenants), you simply need to append the additional tag at the end of your test tenant’s URL, which is “client_type=html”, for example https://my123456789.sapbydesign.com/sap/public/byd/runtime?client_type=html .
Focus in 16.08 was on performance and enabling more floor plans to be used with HTML5.
Therefore, we added the concept of the Launch Pad. Similar to the shortcuts in the the SILVERLIGHT UI, you can promote links to the first page. In this example, I added a tile to accomplish direct access to a list of projects:
The big advantage of the Launchpad is, that it is immediately actionable – even if the counters are not yet loaded, you can click on the tiles and start an action. This reflects our commitment to NOT change the underlying navigational concepts, BUT to improve performance.
With 16.08 first customers can use the CRM capabilities in the production tenants.
Please enjoy the sneak preview and looking forward to your feedback.
