SHR includes SAP Business Objects as the reporting platform. Using Business Objects InfoView we can view, edit, schedule and customize the reports. However, to easily explore, modify, reformat, and edit the reports we need not necessarily depend on Business Objects report designers or IT.

These benefits include:

  •  Revealing “hidden” answers to business questions
  •  Letting users control their analysis
  •  Increased speed of exploration

  •   View report metadata (object definitions)
  •   View, edit, remove report, section, or block filters
  •   Basic cell formatting (fonts, colors, background, borders)
  •   Advanced table and chart formatting (e.g. relative positioning, chart axis control, pivot tables)
  •   In-line table, chart, and cell resizing
  •   Recombine report objects and variables in tables and charts (replace “Region” with “Product”  in a table to see product revenue numbers)
  •   Set breaks and sorts

  •    Add rows and columns to tables
  •    Create and duplicate tables and charts
