Without further ado, allow me to walk you through the most recent updates that are now accessible and can now be used in your SAP PaPM Cloud tenant:

Environment Screen

Application Help Portal and Service Now in Menu option

As a user in case of questions or situations that we need immediate answer or help, it will be convenient to have direct access to the official help portal of SAP Profitability and Performance Management Cloud. And if you need to report a technical error that requires SAP PaPM Cloud's Product Development Expert's attention. Both of which are now made available for users. To utilize this new feature, users can refer to the following steps below:

    • Application Help Portal via Menu > Help > User Guide

    • Service Now ( via Menu > Help > Report Incident

In addition to this very convenient feature, reporting or raising a query via Report Incident option is also available in case of “Oops!” screen is encountered.

Note: Accessing would require SAP Universal ID and users are to be authenticated, ensure that an authenticator app is ready.

Show/Analyze Screens

Column Header Flexibility in Show and Analyze Screens

As users might be interested not only in the description of field as a column heading in Show and Analyze screens but also in the Field ID associated to it, a new option: Header Display was added in the Content Menu of the screens. This new feature will give the users the option to display either just the description of the field or the description with ID as the column heading. Additionally, with this new feature, users will no longer have to go back to Modeling Screen just to check the field ID associated to the column. To utilize this new feature, users can refer to the following steps:

    1. Right click to display the Context Menu

    2. Hover over to Header Display to show the options

    3. Choose Description and ID. Upon choosing the option, it will also display the Field ID in the Column Header.

Provisioning Screen

Due to the fact that BEPS P2 (Base Erosion Profit Shifting Pillar 2) is a topic of discussion among SAP employees and clients, and to make it more intuitive for users interested in BEPS P2 an information help has been added in Provisioning screen under Calculate by Use Case for the aforementioned content.
