UPDATE – Relevant for S/4HANA 1909, 1809,1709, 1610, 1511

NOTE - Starting with 1610 you may directly edit the standard delivered KPI evaluation as described in note 2384598, however, you may still face situations where you need to copy and edit the standard evaluation like making the KPI available for multiple currencies as in this case the use of dynamic values is not available for Smartbusiness objects

One of the most common questions we receive from customers as part of the S/4HANA RIG team is how to Modify Currencies in Standard Fiori Launchpad KPI tiles.

Standard delivery of KPI tiles configuration shows currencies in EURO, if you are working in an implementation project where currencies are different than EURO you will need to modify the KPI tiles to show the currency you need.

Depending on the version you are using, you can decide to follow different approaches described in the following documents:

Step-by-step guide to modify currencies in standard KPI tiles - All versions

Step-by-step guide to modify currencies in standard delivered KPI tiles - S/4HANA 1605 or higher.

If you are following the "Copy KPI" approach, consider that as a development best-practice you will need to create copies of the KPI’s which you will later modify to suit your needs.

Once you have modified your KPI and displayed it in your Launchpad you may face issues assigning authorization objects to end-users. This is a common problem as developers are usually assigned full authorizations in the backend system.

In the following table, you will find the most used backend authorization objects required by KPI tiles
