Display messages to all users in your homepage

Choose your report preferences

  • We’ve developed the “Viewpoints” into our new HTML5 web; the feature is now named “Report preferences”; it is simplified and easier to use compared to our legacy web and thick clients
  • You can define report preferences to be applied by default when running reports. For example, if you want to analyze data for data entry period “2019.02”, you can define this in your report preferences – this way, next time you run a report, the data entry period dimension is initialized by default with “2019.02”
  • You can still change these values in the “Select Dimension Members” dialog box if needed before running the report
  • Initialization preferences are the following: Reference period, Data entry period, Period, Category, Scope, Version, Consolidation currency

See your most used reports

  • In the report list, see the reports you use the most, how many times you run them as well as their last execution date

Enriched scopes and consolidations

  • The Comment tab is now available in the scope editor
  • No blink effect any longer in the RU flat view
  • When saving or duplicating a consolidation, its description is now automatically saved in all working languages

Enhanced package editor

  • Save a package directly from an opened local manual journal entry (you don’t need to close the journal entry any longer)

In-app help/web assistant everywhere

  • We’ve developed the in-app help/web assistant for all HTML5 features (previously it was only available for the package)

Extend the in-app help/web assistant to your needs

  • In addition, you can now customize the in-app help/web assistant to tailor it to your reporting needs
  • Would you want to activate the in-app help/web assistant extensibility scenario, please reach out to our SAP Enable Now team at https://www.sap.com/products/enable-now.html

Faster user experience

  • Benefit from a faster member entry across the app – we’ve limited the number of suggested items to 12

Enhanced S/4HANA connectivity

In 10.1 SP07, we reinforce connectivity with S/4HANA, and deliver on a new S/4HANA data monitor tile in the HTML5 web homepage.

New S/4HANA data monitor tile

  • If you import data directly from S/4HANA, a new “S/4HANA Data Monitor” tile in the HTML5 web homepage is now available
  • The S/4HANA data monitor helps you check S/4HANA data extracted, transformed and loaded in Financial Consolidation packages
  • From the S/4HANA data monitor, you can download the transformation log and verify whether new S/4HANA source data is available for download
  • Use the HTML5 web UI S/4HANA data monitor as a dashboard, connected live to S/4HANA and check if S/4HANA data has been updated since your last import
  • Download the log file explaining the transformation from S/4HANA to Financial Consolidation

Streamlined S/4HANA data load

  • From the HTML5 web UI Import tile, before running an import from S/4HANA, you can now preview the transformations defined in the data link definition
