The SAP Analytics Cloud Calendar

Use the calendar to organize your work flows. You can create different types of tasks and assign people to work on them and others to review the work. You can use processes to manage multiple tasks.

The calendar provides following features to view, create, and manage your tasks:

  • Collaborate
