  • Create an assign reports to work centers and roles
  • Create views and selections
  • Mark selections as default for report or view
  • Enable hierarchy on reports
  • Structure tables for hierarchical view
  • Create report to report navigation and thus pass filters and navigate between reports
  • Exception and Condition based reporting
  • Maintain field specific settings e.g. Sorting, Scaling, ID/Description display, Result rows (sub-totals and totals) etc.
  • Send report via e-mail or Export to Excel
  • Create excel based reports
  • Publish reports on home page

 

Most of the features listed above are also available to end user. Below are some features that are exclusively available to the Key user.

 

Enable Fiscal Year based reporting

 

System provides you a lot of flexibility to choose from standard available fiscal years or create your own fiscal year for reporting.

You can also configure different settings for each year. E.g. If your Fiscal Year ends on 3rd Sat of Dec then the date would be different for each year. The system provides you flexibility to choose different start and end dates for each year.

 

You can specify period details and give your own description to these periods.

You need to enable Fiscal year based reporting in scoping and then make these settings in fine tuning.

 

Configure Actions

 

As an Admin you can control what actions user can perform while working with reports. E.g. if you do not want your users to download reports to excel you can control that.

You can configure following actions:

  • Download
  • Send
  • Open in excel
  • Add fields or attributes

 

Buffer Hierarchy

 

If your end users work a lot with hierarchy, you can buffer hierarchy to make these reports more performant. This feature pre-calculates hierarchy and ensures data is ready before end users execute report.

    Hi,

    Sorry for my ignorance but, can someone please share any further information on:

    • Exception and Condition based reporting

    I am unable to locate any action or button in the report face which can allow me to create a new condition.

    My problem is same as : https://archive.sap.com/discussions/thread/3809707 and can perhaps be resolved as suggested (by creating the condition). Just that I don’t know where to create a condition? I know where are selection parameters and filters but, as in the blog I shared, my field (Chance of Success in Opportunity BO) is not available at either of the places.

    Thanks in advance!

    Regards,

    Harsh Vardhan Shrotriya

    Do you know if there is a restriction to send reports as a mail with a custom view or selection? I´m facing this issue -> https://answers.sap.com/questions/327370/error-opening-reports-sent-to-hybris-user.html
