MSS BW Reporting [Beginner]

Hello all,

I'm looking into implementing BW (3.5) Reporting on our EP (7.0)'s MSS Business Package. And I don't have any idea on how to configure the MSS to show the reports in the reporting workset.

Any guides or how-to's that you can share for this? It would really help me a lot.. (Assuming I've already successfully deployed the MSS package on our EP)

Thanks in Advance.

Reports in the Launchpad

BI content includes Web templates that are used to display reports in the Launchpad. To add the Web templates to the

Launchpad as example entries, execute the program FPB_LP_WRITE_ENTRIES with the MSS role and the REPinstance.

Irrespective of the logon language, the program adds example entries with descriptive texts in English. The example entries provide you with an indication of how you can use the Launchpad. In Customizing for the Launchpad, you can tailor the example entries to suit your requirements.
