The road ahead
As you could read in the previous section, a lot of new features have already been introduced. But, there are still other features that will be launched in the near future. To give you a few examples:
- SAP wants to make Report stories available in different places of SAP SuccessFactors. Dashboards tiles, for example, could be published to a user’s homepage to provide insight into important KPI’s or to indicate that an action needs to be taken. Needless to say, this has a positive impact on the end-user experience.
- Deep links on the other hand should make it possible to take action directly from the report, by clicking on e.g. the employee ID to jump to their profile. Additionally, SAP is not only planning to extend the accessibility in SAP SuccessFactors online, Report Stories will also become available for mobile consumption.
Aside from the features announced in the SAP route map, other non-announced features will become available together with other improvements that will be made during the half-yearly releases.
Earlier, SAP has announced the sunset of all legacy reporting tools. SAP earlier communicated this the edit and create of legacy reports would already start in 2021. For Report Table, Report Canvas and Tiles & Dashboards this has been postponed. For other tools, or parts of them, the sunset has already started. Dashboard tiles will no longer be supported in the mobile app. And, SAP announced Classic Reporting, List Views and Spotlight Views will be sunset in 2022.
