What's New Viewer - SAP S/4HANA

Project Workspace

Project Workspace enables you to:

  • Define a project currency for your commercial project. This currency is used for reporting in Multiproject Overview, Single-Project Overview, Cross-Project View, and in the hierarchical cost status and project cost status reports.

    • The project currency is defaulted from the default company code of the assigned organization.

    • You can set a different project currency for the commercial project and also change this up to the point of creating a financial plan.

    • The project currency is defaulted while creating financial plans, change requests, and risks.

    • In Cross-Project View, you can choose to display values either in respective project currencies or in a preferred currency.

  • Search for commercial projects based on their overall status, using new search criteria.

  • Assign to a risk, reference objects such as structure elements or purchase orders from the commercial project structure.

  • Copy processed or closed items of a billing plan.

  • View change logs for commercial projects, risks, checklists, and contact persons.

  • Define and save user-specific view variants of multiple workspace screens.

  • Search for an object within a UI building block (UIBB), define conditional formatting, use totals for selected rows and dynamic calculations, and view data in the full-screen mode. Note that these features are not available in the analytical UIBB of Project Workspace. However, the hierarchical cost status report has the full-screen mode and the conditional formatting options.

  • View the following additional key performance indicators (KPIs) in the hierarchical cost status report:

    • Pending revenue from change requests

    • Approved revenue from change requests

  • View the following additional KPIs in the project cost status report:

    • Pending revenue from change requests

    • Approved revenue from change requests

  • Use functions that simplify the blocking and deletion of personal data by using SAP Information Lifecycle Management (ILM).
