Access and Contribute to Discussions


You can use the discussion feature to easily collaborate with teams and users.

To create a discussion, select the Collaboration icon. Choose one or more people who you wish to collaborate with, and then start a conversation. You can message, add attachments, and even link to other stories using the plus icon at the bottom of the assistant.

Watch this video to learn about the Discussions feature.

Add Comments

Commenting is a great way to offer feedback on specific elements in a story. Select the element that you wish to comment on, choose the comment icon, and enter your message. Comments can be addressed to specific team members by tagging them with the @ symbol. Comments can be added to different locations of the object/report, such as per widget or per story, depending on where the commenting was started.

Watch this video to learn about the comments feature.

Comments can be made on a story page, a widget, or a data point in a table and can be up to 1,000 characters long. They can also be exported to a file from the story. SAP Analytics Cloud keeps track of the commenting history.
