New SAP Fiori Launchpad Layout: Spaces and Pages

Pages can be used to display the apps in the SAP Fiori launchpad instead of the classic home page. For the cloud customer administrator there is a new WYSIWG editor to easily create launchpad pages or edit predefined pages. Spaces and pages should enhance the flexibility to tailor the launchpad layout according to customer and user needs.

Additional Details

SAP delivers launchpad spaces and pages templates for many business role templates. We are introducing this concept and are delivering space and page templates for many roles with this version. The templates can be used to get acquainted with the concept and to roll-out spaces and pages to the end user. Personalization options for users are supported as already known from the home page with minor changes and restrictions. Administrators can enable users to switch between the home page and the spaces and pages layout.

The spaces mode currently does not support all features you are used to from the home page. The following restrictions apply:

  • Displaying links instead of tiles and converting tiles to links is not supported.

  • The following restrictions apply to the personalization of pages:

    • So far we had locked groups that could not be changed by the user. The pages do not support locked sections.
    • Tile information, e.g. tile names, cannot be changed.
    • Custom tile actions cannot be added.
    • The dialog to select a group for an app is not available.
  • The bookmarking feature was changed. There may be issues with customer-designed apps that do not use the standard API for the bookmark function. To ensure that your own apps work, test the bookmark feature if available. Get back to SAP if you encounter any problems.

  • The Featured Group is not supported for pages.
