We've added a few new features to the SAP Tutorial Navigator tutorials to make them even easier to navigate and complete.

If you open a tutorial that is part of a mission or group, you will get a "mini-navigator" on the right that let's you navigate to the previous and next tutorials in the series, as well as to the start of the mission or group.

On the off-chance you open a tutorial and the tutorial appears in multiple missions/groups and there is no way for us to know what mission/group you intended (say, because you opened it from a Google search), then a list of the groups/missions appear to let you navigate to the right one.

Here's the mini-navigator for the tutorial for creating a destination in the Neo environment for the Northwind database, which is a prerequisite for several of our missions and groups.


Side panel

The side panel that lets you navigate to a specific step, now is enhanced in 2 key ways:

  • A bubble is shown next to each step, and it shows you whether you have completed that step (e.g., by answering a question or clicking Done). Since the side panel is always visible as you scroll, you will always see if you completed all the steps in the tutorial.

  • As you scroll the tutorial, the currently visible step is shown in bold, so you always know what step you're in.


License required

Most tutorials are designed to be done with trial accounts. But occasionally we want to show you how to do something that can only be done on a system that requires a customer or partner license.

In such a case, you will see a key icon and short text indicating this.

An explanation of exactly what you need should be in the prerequisites section.

As always, let us know what you'd like to see in our tutorials, either content-wise or feature-wise.
