How to schedule a story in SAP BOC to be delivered to end users on a recurring basis?

Hi All,

Is there anyone who has scheduled any BOC Story for the end users and which gets delivered to them in email?

Can it be done on a recurring basis and what is the output format : Is it pdf or just story link in email?

Regards,

Kiran Shenvi

    Hi,

    for 'acquired data', yes the model can be updated with a scheduled refresh . all dependent stories would get new records accordingly.

    for 'online data', each time a story is opened it's fetching latest data from source.

    but i think your comparing BOC storyboards to enterprise reporting (i.e. scheduling to formats, broadcast/publications etc.) which is perhaps missing the point slightly: 'save to pdf' isn't painting a vision of "going digital" .

    yes, files can be saved as pdf, but really this is an online tool, so access would nearly always be from URL .

    regards, H

    • Thanks Henry for your reply!
      We have 'online data' and using LIVE connection for our BOC stories. I agree with your line of thought!


      What we are looking for is that can BOC schedule an email with a link to the story
      or
      can the BOC as a system trigger a notification to the user (may be as a reminder) on a recurrent basis at a scheduled time?

      Regards,

    you are of course correct, and you have outlined some valid requirements so please let me check the roadmap and get back to you.

    It may be a case of spearheading this with some ideas place entries as well, where i know you are very active already. Cheers, H

    Hey experts! I hope you are fine !! I have a doubt: For users to create models by hana calculations views (BOC only) is it necessary to register the user's P-USER (or S-USER) also in HCP or just in the BOC ??? I believe it is only in the BOC, but I would like the opinion of our specialists. Can someone fix me? Thank you very much in advance.
