      Hi Alex,

      I think that makes a lot of sense and we heard this also from other customers & partners. Please do not hesitate to create a customer influence request for it: https://influence.sap.com/sap/ino/#/campaign/886

      Cheers

      Hi Jan

      We're trying this out but we cannot add any of our BYD tenants to the app, we get this error:

       

       

      What is the allowed list, is it a Teams config item? There is no info in the help for the app about this. We have gone to the global app settings in Teams

       

      and there are no settings for an allowed list.

       

      Any help gratefully received.

      Same here. Seems still not available to all users? Or may be some configuration setting needed.

      Hi Jan, we've tried it on multiple systems, some test, some productive, some are 21.05 already and some not. Same problem in all cases.

      Hi Jan

      It works! We've got an account list up and showing. We're now exploring the app fully.

      What was the problem?

      Cool! I think it was incomplete syndication of the GA version - thanks for the heads-up ;o)

      The list available only includes-

      -Opportunity List
      -Project List
      -Account List
      -Dashboard list
      -Account List

      Thank you,

      Hi Hussein,

      you need to setup a dashboard in the Insights Work Center. Here you can embed all types of analytics like KPIs or report. The source reports I have been using for the demo below are:

      • Report: Aging List for Receivables

      • Report: Aging List for Payables
      • Report: Order Profit Overview for Dashboards

      Here is a video how I did it and you can do the same with sales target reports and any other KPI.

      Hi Jan,
      with no system it is possible to add the launchpad. When I add a Work Center View, the Launchpad item is always missing. Is this a known problem?

      Add%20WorkCenter%20View
      I would be very grateful for help on this.
      Best regards
      Timo

      Add WorkCenter View

      Hi Timo,

      tabs to the ByD launchpad are not allowed by Microsoft currently but we are in discussion to introduce this in the future.

      Cheers
