SAP Analytics Cloud Mobile

SAP Analytics Cloud Mobile application is available for iOS and Android mobile devices, so that you can use SAP Analytics Cloud and its functions on your cellular phone or tablet device from anywhere at any time.

Watch this video to learn about the SAP Analytics Cloud Mobile application.

Design a Story for Mobile

As we have previously discussed, the Responsive page of a story is required for viewing on mobile devices using the SAP Analytics Cloud mobile app. (Computers can also view Responsive pages.) Also keep in mind that stories can be viewed only in portrait mode for phones and landscape mode for tablets; the stories do not rotate their orientation.

If you view the story on your mobile device's browser, Canvas pages will also be displayed.

You can set different font sizes for the resolutions of different device types based on Responsive Rules you create. This allows story designers to target how text and widgets are displayed for a single story when viewed across multiple mobile devices. First select a device and size from the Device Preview Bar at the bottom of the story page. Then with a lane in the story selected, open the Builder panel. You can now define how widgets in the lane will display on a specific mobile device, or even hide them.

You can also hide an individual Responsive story page so it does not appear on mobile devices. Select the drop-down icon for the page and choose Hide in mobile.

Additional Information
