  • Configure text, image, and R visualization widgets

Text Widgets

You can add static or dynamic text using the text widget. Dynamic text automatically updates the text based on what dynamic text elements you choose.

Symbols can be pasted into the text widgets.

The hyperlink option for the widget can be used to navigate between pages in the story, to a new story, or to any website. In the text widget, manually type the text you want for the hyperlink, such as Go to Page [X]. Using the Styling pane, format the text in the familiar blue, underlined hyperlink format. Finally, either right-click the widget or use the More Actions button, choose AddHyperlink and define the link.

Image Widgets

You can use the image widget to include any image in your story, such as your corporate logo. You can also add a hyperlink in the same way you add one to a text widget.

R Visualization

R is an open-source programming language that can enable you to create custom charts and graphs. If the chart options in SAP Analytics Cloud do not meet your needs, the R Visualization widget may provide a solution for you. The figure Static and Interactive R Visualizations illustrates how native R visualization support enables you to visualize and analyze data without limits.

The R server runtime environment provided by SAP allows you to access interactive R visualizations with an automatically configured R server.

R Visualization Widget

You use the R Visualization widget to create and edit visualizations based on R scripts. By setting the relevant properties, you can change the size and style of the widget.

The R visualization widget is used in both stories and analytic applications.
