Hi,

 

I think this issue still persists. Could anyone please confirm if these links are expected to be fixed in the future or whether these are going to be removed permanently? If I click on the 'interactive diagram' links, a zip is downloaded in each case but none of them actually display any workflow.

 

Hope these are indeed fixed since these are a good way to understand the working of the product.

 

Regards,

Tejaswini

I've looked at most of those resources already.  They are either very brief "what's new" videos that quickly go over new functionality or they all feature the legacy launchpad.

There doesn't seem to be any tutorials on working with Business Objects using the new Fiori launchpad.  That is specifically what I am looking for.
