Later in the week we had an ASUG Lumira Designer influence session – some notes are below:



1. Venn Diagram for Lumira Designer. Using static images

2. Info Graphics

– wants Lumira Discovery pictures to be used in Lumira Designer

• customized image

3.  export entire container like Xcelsius

• if you were a wiz with VLOOKUP you could use Xcelsius

4.  offline capability

5.  embedded WebI reports

6.  multiple apps – send to flat file

• view on iPad -parameter –

• Lumx format multiple applications – just see Lumx not apps

• can’t overwrite LUMX

7. Conditional formatting for UNX


Because the SAP Influence site ( does not have an area for Lumira, face-to-face meetings become more important.
