Ok... here's the link to the presentation.  If you were already registered for the event please use the "Already registered?" link to access the launch presentation option - if not you can register yourself and then launch the presentation. Hang in there... we did have a technical problem at the start but about half way through everything started working beautifully so we did get to see the demo just a little later than expected. Enjoy!

Thanks to everyone who attended the session! It was well attended and we had a lot of active participation.

Some of the best news were the number of providers on the roadmap,  especially the Cloud providers, and the team were very keen to hear of more providers so keep your suggestions coming via Idea Place. 

For those who weren't able to make it I'm including a few screenshots similar to what we showed in the demo to whet your appetite... scroll down :smile: .

Screenshots a la demo.... of just a few of the My Inbox features

0. Notice that even on the Fiori Launchpad you can set up My Inbox tiles WITH a custom filter on the types of tasks

1. Multiple work items actions are possible.  This screenshot shows mass approval of work items, the person selects the work items they want to approve in the left hand pane, the actions that can be applied across the selected work items appear at the bottom of the left hand pane, and the right hand pane shows a summary of all the selected tasks.  This can be used for custom actions.

2. Filtering of work items.  This screen shows a  simple filtering by priority but other filters can be applied.  Notice the sort ascending/descending and filter icons at the bottom of the left hand pane.

3. Substitution. Currently user-based but yes position-based is on the roadmap (no dates yet as yet though... so if that's critical to you please let us know by SAP Message or Idea Place to help raise the priority).   Substitution by task categorization is available - notice the "Task Group" values here.
