Hi All,

We have implemented commentary functionality in design studio dashboard (1.6 SP1 patch 2 and BO version in 4.1 SP2)using Input box and universe created on function module in BW (We have ABAP logic in FM by means of which we are storing the comments in BW table)

User is now able to add comments and will able to view the comments for particular selection on dashboard.

Now Customer wants following things to be implemented for the commentary functionality :

1. User should type multiple lines with paragraph (i.e. by enter) in input box,which is not supported in design studio

2. User should type in bold and italic and should be able to retrieve in same format on dashboard.

We have found below links for commentary functionality in design studio.

Slideshare : http://www.slideshare.net/PeterScheffelt/sap-bi-bo-commentary-solution

Youtube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCHIKu4YHKI

Please help by exploring the links or let me know is there any another workaround for the same.

Looking for your help and support.

Hi Amardip

In regards to issue 1 - I understand your request to be that you wish to edit the comment directly in the textfield of the application, and not have to go to a second link to edit the comment? In that case I have created something like that for a customer, where we instead utilized Transportable Fragment Bookmarks to save comments. This demands some custom scripting to handle saving the comment and loading it, but allows for inputting comments directly in the application. You need to do a custom LCM for this as well, as SAP removes all bookmarks upon promotion on BI platform, and you will not have comments persisted in BW but in bookmarks on BI platform.

In regards to issue 2 - I do not know of an easy solution to this, that does not involve a third party extension. You can try and find one that fits your need here: https://analytics-extensions.enter.sap/sap/aed/ui/

Hi Amardip,

based this solution on BW Document? If not, is there any SDK solution based on BW Document? Since we have many comments saved in bw document and it has to be migrated if the new commentary solution has different storage (not bw document).

Best regards

Hi Amardip,

In answer to your two points:

1. User should type multiple lines with paragraph (i.e. by enter) in input box,which is not supported in design studio

What about the standard Text Area component which allows multi-line input?

2. User should type in bold and italic and should be able to retrieve in same format on dashboard.

You might be able to adapt your existing BW solution based on the example given in the blog Self-Made DesignStudio SDK Dashboard. You would need to store the text in your BW table as a HTML string.

Regards,

Mustafa.
