Review Booklet Designer:

You might have heard about the latest enhancement that SAP is working on, that is extensibility tools which aid to enhance the presentation requirement of Reporting and in this process, they have introduced a new tool Review Booklet Designer.

The Review Booklet Designer is one of the key user extensibility tools. You create your booklet in the test system and trigger the transport to the production system. With the aid of this tool you can create new pages or even copy the exting pages and make changes as required.

A little info about Review Booklet:

Review Booklet App Helps to display, analyze and validate data. They present an aggregated view of business data by combining predefined business pages, which are usually grouped under main areas.

Review booklets represent the next generation of multidimensional analytical applications. They reuse analytical components, content, and features from SAP Analytics Cloud in UI5 and thus create UI consistency between SAP S/4HANA Cloud and SAP Analytics Cloud. In review booklets, Fiori apps can embed multidimensional insights for a specific area.

Is it possible to add any custom analytical query as Data Provider? 

Although there are many custom analytical queries in our system, it does only show the group reporting ones that were copied with.

Hi @LuizF ,

I have not tested the same because my core work is Group Reporting ,

But I think since the Review Booklet  main purpose is the Reporting of Financials , so there may be a possibility that the Query is only allowing the group reporting ones.

Still I'm exploring the same , if I come across will inform you , or in case if you figure out anything, feel free to connect with me.

Thank you @LuizF .

Have a Great Day 😊.
