New SAC Guidelines Templates Q1 2022

DESCRIPTION

From import description:

“Many Dashboard Designers always repeat the same steps at the beginning of the creation of a story. This is required, if all dashboards should follow the same structure, layout, and guidelines. To reduce these repetitive tasks, templates are a great help. Especially if these templates already cover many rules of the given guidelines.
For this reason, we deliver a set of dashboard templates, following the two best-practice guidelines in SAP: IBCS International Business Communications Standards and Fiori Quartz Light theme.

Features:
The templates are available for use in the SAP Analytics Cloud application, created to help users follow design standards and create great dashboards.
For each of the two template types, SAP offers three dashboards, including a monitoring, reporting, and planning dashboard.
The IBCS reporting dashboard is only available in canvas-style, due to the required layout flexibility for highlighting values.
Other dashboards are available as a responsive-style and a canvas-style dashboards.
A total of 6 templates are offered to users, helping them in achieving excellence.”
