It is ready for multi-device/platform usage. SAP Analytics Cloud, add-in for Microsoft Office is supported on any Windows or Apple device.

 

After a first period of limited Beta , we want to extend it to offer  the add- in Beta experience to our SAP Analytics Cloud customers.

  • Hello Jeanne,

    1) One of the requirements is:

    “SAP Analytics Cloud deployment on Cloud Foundry only with the domain sapanalytics.cloud”

    Does it mean that after Beta – Excel add-in will be only available on Cloud Foundry environment?

    2) What about planning? Does the current wave of beta cover also planning within Excel Add-in?

    Regards,

    Krzysztof

    • Hi Krzysztof,

      1) That’s the current situation ,and we know it’s an important  limitation that we may  need to consider  but it’s not in our current roadmap.

      2) Planning is not available on the current beta version but it’s one of the key feature we want to support and it’s definitively in our roadmap for GA – planned Q2 2020.

      Best regards

      Jeanne

  • Hi Jeanne,

    our SAC tenants are based on Cloud Foundry, but our domain doesn’t match “sapanalytics.cloud”.

    Instead our domain is “hanacloudservices.cloud.sap”. Will we be able to use the add-in anyway as our tenants are based on Cloud Foundry?

    Thanks in advance and kind regards,

    Agnetha

    • Hi Agnetha,

      no, this is a current limitation.

      SAP Analytics Cloud, add-in for MS Office currently only supports (CF-)tenants with the domain sapanalytics.cloud.

      Background is  the Excel add-in runs in an iframe within Excel. For security reasons, it can only call other URLs within the same domain. So the landing page (where you can log on) needs to be in the same domain as the customer’s SAC tenant. We are working on allowing this as soon as possible.

      Best

  • Hello Jeanne,

    where can I get the installation file for
    ANALYSISOFFICE_OCEAN 1.0 – SAC Edition for MS Office 1.0

    ?

    Thanks in advance!

    Best Regards Dietmar

  • Hello Jeanne,

     

    We have completed the TEA on 04-Feb-2020 15:55:29 and have not heard anything via email. We have a very eager user group who wants to explore via SAC Edition for MS Office but I have no status to share with them.

    I have checked my SPAM box and I have not seen anything on SAC Edition for MS Office.

    Is there someone I can reach out to so to confirm whether we have been accepted or rejected for the beta?

     

    Thanks in Advance,

    Roy

  • Hi Jeanne,

    we signed the TEA on 13/02/2020. We’re very interested in this new feature of SAC, and we want to test it for our user cases scenarios.

    Can you please check why we didn’t receive anything about it?

    Best regards

  • Hi Jeanne,

    I signed the TEA last week and I received an email confirming the SAP Preshipment Request Form status was completed.

    Please let me know what else needs to be done on my side, in order to install and test the excel add’in,

    Thanks and regards,
