(CO: Controlling)



SAP sFIN Launchpad for FI-Transactions

(FI: Financial Accounting)



SAP sFIN Launchpad for FO-Transactions

Note Note

The launchpads is this customizing activity do not define the appearance or the content of the FIORI launchpad. They contain the definitions of apps, which can be executed from the FIORI launchpad and define how these apps can be started.

End of the note.

These launchpads contain the definitions of all Web Dynpro apps. In this activity, you can review the definition of the app that you want to implement to understand how it works in context with the tile definition and the target mapping in the launchpad designer.
