With SAP Content to Go Dave can realize this with a couple steps.

  • First Dave creates a new Card of the type "Automatic Instance Card".

  • Dave adds a query to the Automatic Instance Card which is fetching the top 3 payslips sorted by date

  • Dave adds a sample response of one payslip

  • In the HTML editor Dave designs the look of the card. All areas where data fields are supposed to show Dave adds "{{}}" handlebars with and ID

  • In the Mapper tap Dave maps the now the data fields to the actual entities


Dave can now deploy the Card and all Employees connected to the Content to Go service can subscribe to the card.

So, with a few clicks anybody can now mobilize enterprise offline and up to date to their users.
