CROA - What’s new in the BI launch pad



What’s new in the BI launch pad




SAP Jam was added as a collaboration option for the BI launch pad. When integrated, SAP Jam adds social media and collaboration features to the launch pad.


Collaboration improvements


With the addition of SAP Jam, the BI launch pad supports two collaboration options. Your administrator must configure your collaboration application in the Central Management Console (CMC) in the BI platform, before you can use it.

 The following enhancements are supported by both collaboration applications:

  • New viewer options
  • Improved integration with the BI launch pad
  • New access rights
  • Add comments to a feed when opening a document or instance via an OpenDocument link


Open the details panel in any viewer

  You can open the details panel from anywhere in the BI launch pad–and in a viewer when using an OpenDocument link.



Automatically add file extensions when scheduling


When scheduling reports and publications, the Add File Extension check box in the Destinations dialog box automatically adds the file extension to a file name. The check box is selected by default to ensure that each file name has a file extension. (If a file name does not have a file extension, you may be unable to open the document.)

 You can also add a file-extension placeholder when scheduling to the following destination locations:

  • BI Inbox
  • Email
  • FTP server
  • File system
