SAP Profitability and Performance Management: What’s Included in Visual Modeler SP14 SAP Note 3032037

A couple of weeks ago, SAP Profitability and Performance Management 3.0 released support package (SP13). I encourage you to also read the blogpost which includes an overview of the solution’s latest release in case you haven’t seen it.

In this blogpost, let me provide further information of what’s included with the first SP14 Visual Modeler SAP Note 3032037 – FS-PER Rel. 3.0 SP14: Visual Modeler Screens enhancements and fixes (01) that was released just a few weeks after.

 

Modeling (Read-only)

  • Search by technical ID in multiselect dropdown

Previously, Visual Modeler has already supported search by field description in the multiselect dropdown. Now, users can search using the field ID / technical ID is also possible.

  • Description of Model Tables in Data Editor when expanded

Next enhancement is when the Data Editor of a Model Table is expanded, the description will now be visible which allows user to still identify which table is expanded.

  • Show button “Edit” tooltip for Model Table with Transport Data = No

From the previously released Visual Modeler SAP Note, when Transport Data flag of Model Table is unchecked, the Show button is enabled which allows user to open the Data Maintenance screen when clicked. In this note, the Show button tooltip will be now shown as “Edit” for consistency.

Process Management Screen (Read-only)

  • Search by technical ID in multiselect dropdown

Just like in the Modeling Screen, the feature to search using field ID / technical ID is also possible in the Process Management Screen.

  • Default and stabilized zoom for better user experience

The next enhancement included in this note is the default zoom level in the Process Management screen. Now, the default zoom level is set as daily and has been stabilized as well for better user experience.

Visualize Screen/Report Management Screen (Editable)

  • Search by technical ID in multiselect dropdown

Same with the Modeling and Process Management screens, the search by field ID / technical ID is also possible for the Visualize/Report Management screen.

  • User preference date format support

Previously, the date format set by the user is not being followed in standalone analyze and expanded analyze screens. Now, the set date format by user is supported in the Visualize/Report Management screen.

  • Export as PDF feature is now available

Another feature added is the Export to PDF option in the Visualize/Report Management screen. This functionality allows user to generate and save a PDF file of the report created.

  • Display title in browser tab name for standalone Visualize Screen

For better user experience, the “Title” set under Chart Structure in standalone visualize now reflects on the browser tab name.

Several fixes were also included in this note to solve issues such as:

Modeling Screen (Read-only)

During the development phase, an issue occurred wherein the positioning of Search in Modeling is incorrect.

This note fixes this issue and will show the Search on top of the sidebar.

Implementing this note will fix this issue and the width of the report element will no longer grow continuously when it is changed to Sheet chart type.

  • Inconsistency in cell width of report elements when changed to chart type Sheet

In relation to above, there was also an issue when after changing the chart type to Sheet of report elements that are beside one another, the set width of the table cells are no longer retained.
