2 SAP Fiori basicsThis chapter introduces the new SAP user experience called SAPFiori, with its launchpad and apps, designed to reduce complexity andmake working with SAP S/4HANA easier and faster than with the traditional SAP GUI.2.1The SAP Fiori launchpadUsing the classic SAP GUI was not easy. Menu paths were complicated,the screen old-fashioned, and transactions only accessible on a desktopor laptop. You needed extensive training and often had to scroll throughmultiple screens to action a single item.SAP has replaced the traditional menu and graphical user interface (GUI)with a consumer-grade user experience called SAP Fiori. SAP Fiori is webbased and consists of a dashboard or launchpad with a number of tileswhich contain only the apps relevant to each user. The tiles are simpler,more intuitive to use than the GUI menu, more in line with apps on a Smartphone or tablet, and can be used on any device.Apps can be transactional, analytical, or factsheets, and many of the analytical apps show key figures on the face of the tile itself. For example, appsfor approving purchase orders or staff leave may contain the number ofoutstanding approvals on the face of the tile; bank apps may show the bankbalance; and bank statement monitors may show the number of successfuland unsuccessful bank statements processed. There are some examplesof these smart apps shown in Figure 2.1.In many apps, you see an overview screen showing all customers, suppliers, or other items and you can then either drill down to display or edit thedetails, or create new items.23

SAP Fiori basicsFigure 2.1: Smart SAP Fiori apps on the SAP Fiori launchpadYou can tailor the launchpad and arrange your apps into groups, or minidashboards, perhaps with the most-used apps at the top. In the top left ofthe screen (above the apps), there is a small button, , which takes you tothe ME area where you can change settings, edit your home page, or signout. If you select the App Finder, the apps are listed by catalog and you canalso search for them by name. Click onat the bottom of an app in theapp finder to create a new group or add the app to an existing group.Load one group to home pageIf you have a lot of apps and it is taking a long time to loadyour home page, you can go to Settings Home page andchoose Show One group at a Time. See Figure 2.2.Also, under Settings, you can change various settings such as the color ofthe screen, and set defaults, which we will explain later. Edit Home Page allows you to rearrange the tiles and create your own groups. See Figure 2.2.If you have used an app recently, you can see it in Recent Activities whenyou click on the ME button. There is also a neat search option at the topright of the launchpad, the enterprise search, where you can specify whereto search, as well as what to search for. For example, if you have a reference but are not sure what it refers to (e.g., a document or master data),you can search using All, which will return every location the reference24

SAP Fiori basicsappears. Alternatively, you can use the dropdown to restrict the search to aspecific area such as apps, specific master data, documents, etc.Figure 2.2: SAP Fiori settings for home page displayDropdownWhen we use the term dropdown, we refer to thebuttonon the right of a selection field. When you click on thisbutton, the system will either give you a list to choose from,or take you to another screen where you can enter searchterms or a condition to find what you are looking for. Thereis a calendarbutton for date fields.In Figure 2.3, we searched All for the number 12345, and the system returned journal entries with that reference, batch numbers of stock items,customers, and a number of other items to choose from. You can restrictthe search to billing documents, cost centers, employees, or a number ofother items in the dropdown list, and you can also restrict it to apps, anduse the search function instead of the app finder, or export the results to aspreadsheet. You have abutton at the top left of the results screen, (notshown in the figure), where you can filter further.25

SAP Fiori basicsFigure 2.3: SAP Fiori enterprise search2.2SAP Fiori appsSAP Fiori apps look and feel similar to each other and are consistent acrossdifferent platforms and devices. They are simple, intuitive, and role-basedso that users are not faced with a number or fields or screens that are notrelevant to them.Although you can still use the traditional GUI transactions, as well as orinstead of the SAP Fiori apps in SAP S/4HANA on-premise, the SAP Fioriapps are the only way for users to access the transactions in SAP S/4HANACloud. In some cases, the apps are based on (or similar to), the GUI transaction and the fields that need to be filled in will be similar (if not the same),although many apps are completely new or have been rewritten with additional functionality. If we describe an app as based on a GUI transaction, itmeans that we will probably use the app in associated figures, but everything applies equally whether you are using the app or the GUI transaction.As the apps are simple and intuitive, with plenty of onscreen help and tutorials available, this book concentrates more on the process itself, explainsmore about the key fields, and highlights the key features of mentionedapps. Often, the figures may not be identical to what you see in your systemas the functionality is changing so quickly. New functionality is usually available first in the cloud and later on-premise.26

SAP Fiori basicsSwitching on the help functionalityTo see the help functionality in SAP S/4HANA Cloud,you can click thebutton or (F1) key, which indicateswhere further help is available. See Figure 2.4. In the latestversions of SAP S/4HANA Cloud, you may see a pop-up toadvise you of new features and sometimes you can launcha video from the initial screen to see how to perform thetransaction and follow links to related topics.Figure 2.4: SAP Fiori help functionalityIn many apps, you can create your own layout variants to see the fieldsmost relevant to you, and you can save an app as a new tile containingthe specific range of accounts, banks, or company codes that you use themost.Not all apps are available in every release and descriptions sometimeschange, so, where possible, we will precede apps with their five- or six-digitcode beginning with F, which you can search for in the SAP Fiori app library,and compare with the app in your system.Many apps allow you to jump to other apps, for example, while in the F0731Manage G/L account master data app you can jump directly to the F3297 Define Financial Statements Items app. Some of overview apps contain quite abit of information on the first screen in the form of a number of larger cardswith graphical displays. See Figure 2.5, App F2769—Overview InventoryManagement.There are many types of financial overview page apps, such as G/L, accounts payable, accounts receivable, projects, and treasury. Best practicesscope item 2JB SAP Fiori Analytical Apps for Financial Accounting coversthe accounts payable and accounts receivable overviews in detail, but thescope item is only available in SAP S/4HANA Cloud at the moment.27
