      Hi Xavier,

      I'm sure this question has been asked before but when will we get the ability to export the reporting to pdf? I think this is a required key functionality within Focused Insights.

      Dear Xavier


      I just made a presentation to my IT Responsible and we are ready to implement

      Just 2 questions:

      How much time we need to implement from scratch to be able to show dshboards

      How many resource we need to increase in Solution Manager in order to run focused insight (estimed users: 25)

      Depending on your sokman's SP level can be a very tedious work implementing the required notes.

      I did install the add-on and notes vor SP4 wave 6.2 on a Solman SP9 and I struggled with the notes for about 2-3 days.

      After that, if you know what to do, you can configure some dashboards in 1-2 days.

      Assuming you have done setup for all managed systems and have your monitoring setup as well.

      The resources doesn't change much unless you want to have a very long historical data, so you will keep more data in your BW. This you can change on the Solman Setup.
