Release Highlights

  • Data Integration
  • Enterprise Planning
  • Microsoft Office Integration
  • User Collaboration

Data Integration

Tunnel Connection Type for BPC Live Connection

Users can now establish a SAP BPC live data connection using the new “Tunnel” connection type. The tunnel connection type will allow users to access SAP BPC live data from outside the company without having a VPN.

Enterprise Planning

Dependencies Between Calendar Events

Calendar event dependencies are an extension of start by conditions of a calendar event, task, or process. Planning users can now define dependencies to dynamically start a calendar event when one or more predecessor tasks has reached a certain status. In addition to start by conditions by dependencies, child events can be set to start at the same time as their parent process by defining a start by condition by parent process.

Furthermore, users can now create a general task and review task. General tasks lets users assign people to input planning data or do any other work. Review tasks are optimized for any reviewing steps in a workflow, and lets users assign people to check the work result of other tasks or processes.

Microsoft Office Integration

Neo Tenant Support

With enhancements to the App Router, we are excited to announce that Neo tenants will now support the SAP Analytics Cloud add-in for Microsoft Office. The changes in App Router will be available from March 7 for all regions.

User Collaboration

Dynamic Text in the Schedule Publication

While scheduling a story, users can introduce dynamic text to replace email variables content with new values dynamically based on different system variables. Dynamic text allows for more personalization in the story sharing experience at run time and brings more value to recipients.

The following dynamic text elements can be added to the email subject, message body, or file name:

  • Scheduler date
  • Scheduler time
  • Scheduler month
  • Scheduler year
