Interactive Tutorials for SAP Analytics Cloud – A New Guided Learning Offering
SAP Analytics Cloud now offers a new format that supports you to acquire expertise in various SAP Analytics Cloud areas in step-by-step instructions.
What Are Interactive Tutorials?
Interactive tutorials let you click through a scenario in a recorded system environment while guiding you through a predefined workflow. They support beginners, but advanced users can also benefit from tutorials that explain new features.
Why Do We Offer this Format for SAP Analytics Cloud?
The help offered on the SAP Analytics Cloud Help Portal page serves you to gain knowledge by reading help articles or watching videos before you start working in the application. If you don’t feel comfortable getting started right away, you can now make yourself familiar with product features by clicking through a task you need to accomplish while still being in a safe recorded system environment.
How to Work with Interactive Tutorials
Yellow text boxes provide information and explanation, or give you detailed instructions. You select the highlighted part of the screen or enter text as you would do in your real system.
A progress bar indicates how far you got and lets you go back to a step you might want to repeat.
Additionally, you can view the workflow steps in PDF format.
After you’ve clicked through the learning tutorial, this hands-on document lets you look up certain steps when you repeat the workflow in your system.

You can access the tutorials from several places:
- From the SAP Analytics Cloud Tutorials Library
