  • You are assigned the Shared Workspace Creation role.

  • Enterprise feeds have been created in the portal.


The Mobile Homepage Enterprise Feed module enables you to view enterprise feeds. An enterprise feed is a container that enables you to aggregate content items from different channels. A channel is a content source that provides content items (or entries). The channel types provided by SAP include: Knowledge Management (KM) News, RSS, and Universal Worklist.

When configuring the Enterprise Feed module in a mobile homepage, you select the enterprise feed to display in the module from a gallery that contains all the enterprise feeds in the system to which you have access permissions.


The Mobile Homepage RSS Reader, KM News, and Media Reader modules provided in version 1.1 SP03 are now deprecated, and have been replaced by the Enterprise Feed module. Any existing mobile homepages that include these deprecated modules should continue to work as previously. For new mobile homepages, use the new Enterprise Feed module and the instructions that follow.


  1. Create a mobile homepage that contains the Enterprise Feed module.
  2. In the mobile homepage, choose Configure Module in the Enterprise Feed module.

    A gallery is displayed containing all the enterprise feeds in the system for which you have access permissions. You can hover over an enterprise feed to view the channels contained in the feed.

  3. Choose Select Feed to select the enterprise feed to display in the module.
  4. Choose Done.

    The feed entries are displayed in the module, according to the configuration of the enterprise feed: By Channel, or Flat List.

    To return to the gallery to select a different enterprise feed, use the Configure Module icon.

  5. When the entries are displayed by channel, you see a list of channels.

    To view the list of entries in a specific channel, choose the View icon of the channel.

    To return to the list of channels, choose the Channel List link.

  6. When viewing a list of entries (either of a channel, or in a flat list):
    • Use the view icons to select how to view each entry: Display Title and Summary Description, or Display Title and Image.

    • Select an entry to display its contents.

  7. To configure the maximum number of entries that is returned by each channel in the feed, choose Options, choose Settings, and set the value of the Number of Entries in Grouped View field as required.

    If the display mode of the enterprise feed is By Channel, then the number of entries retrieved is the minimum between the numbers defined for the channel and for the module.

    If the display mode of the enterprise feed is Flat List, then the number of entries retrieved is according to the configuration of the channel (and the module setting is not applicable).

    Choose Done to save your changes.

  8. After you have configured the modules for the mobile homepage, perform final configurations, such as adding members and managers, and publishing the mobile homepage.


When users open the mobile homepage on an iPad device, the Enterprise Feed modules display either a list of channels or a list of entries. Users can tap a channel to view its entries, and they can tap an entry to view its contents. In Universal Worklist channels, users may also be able to perform actions, depending on the configuration of the channel.
