Feature Details

Page-Level View Management

By default, page-level view management is enabled and the header displays a page title.

You can disable it.

If you disable page-level view management, you must display a header title.

For more information, see Header Title.

Share Menu

By default, the header contains the generic Share menu with the global actions Send Email and Save as Tile. It can also include the:

  • Share in SAP Jam menu item when SAP Jam integration is configured.
  • Microsoft Teams > As Chat and As Card options when the required settings have been made by the system administrators of SAP S/4HANA or SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

This feature is part of collaborative ERP (enterprise resource planning), which integrates the best of SAP S/4HANA or SAP S/4HANA Cloud with Microsoft Teams. It’s not available for all users.

When available, the menu item opens a separate window where users can directly share a link to a business application in the SAP S/4HANA or SAP S/4HANA Cloud system with co-workers.

With SAP Fiori elements for OData V4, you can control the visibility in the Share menu of the Send E-mail and Share: Microsoft Teams options at both application level and page level.

Save as Tile

The tile created opens the list report with the same results shown at the time the tile was saved.

Users can also save a dynamic tile for results shown after the users have filtered for a relative date value, such as today or this year.

    By default, the search is disabled.

    You can enable it.

    Work with the development team to define the searchable properties in the data.

    For more information, see Search.

    Filter Bar

    SAP Fiori elements for OData V2 uses the smart filter bar.

    SAP Fiori elements for OData V4 uses the filter bar.

    With SAP Fiori elements for OData V4, you can also show a Clear button on the filter bar to let users:

    • Remove all filter values

    • Reset the value in the Editing Status filter to All

    Put all controls for searching and filtering data in the list report filter bar.

    Do not include the search or filter options that are available in the table header.

    Initial State of Header

    The default behavior is shown below:

    Screen Size

    Application Starts with Data

    Application Starts without Data

    S Collapsed Expanded
    M Collapsed Expanded
    L Expanded Expanded
    XL Expanded Expanded

    Pin Button

    With SAP Fiori elements for OData V4, the Pin  /Unpin   buttons are displayed under the header when a list report contains at least one responsive table,

    The pin option keeps the header collapsed or expanded when the user scrolls.

    The grid table and the analytical tables are not scrollable so the Pin  /Unpin  buttons are not displayed when the list report contains only these types of table.

    For more information see, Pinning the Header Content.

    Editing Status Filter

    By default, the filter is enabled for draft-enabled applications.

    The filter values and corresponding results are as follows:

    • All (Default value):
      • All saved (or active) versions of the documents for which the current user has no drafts
      • All the users own drafts of unsaved changes to existing documents. The version last saved before the user began editing the draft is not shown in the results.
    • All (Hiding Drafts): Only the saved objects.
    • Own DraftDrafts that the current user can display or edit.
    • Locked by Another User: Saved versions that are locked by other users. The current user cannot edit these versions.
    • Unsaved Changes by Another User: Saved versions that were edited by another user but are no longer locked. The current user can edit and overwrite these versions, and the previous draft will be overwritten.
    • No Changes: Saved versions with no corresponding draft.

    For more information, see Draft handling.

    Input Controls for Filters

    You can decide which filter/input controls to use and set the following for them:

    • The properties available as a filter criterion
    • The labels for the filter fields
    • The default filter values
    • Mandatory filters: Marked by an asterisk (*), they always show in the filter bar.
    • Type-ahead for values entered
    • Value help lists
      By default, a dialog conditions tab is displayed for the value help. Remind application developers to define the right value help options.
    Developer Hint
    For information on defining the value help, refer application developers to Field Help.

    You can also:

    • Decide on the selection controls for the filters
    • Restrict the values accepted in the field. By default, the field accepts multiple values.
    Date Picker and Date / Time Picker

    By default, filter fields for the date picker (sap.m.DatePicker)and date/time picker (sap.m.DateTimePicker) result in a control that opens a dialog for adding multiple dates.

    When your use case requires a date/time picker for a single value, specify this to the the application developers because it requires explicit configuration.

    For more information refer them to: Configuring Filter Fields.

    For more information, see:

    Adapt Filters

    By default, SAP Fiori elements for OData V2 uses the Adapt Filters dialog and SAP Fiori elements for OData V4 uses the Adapt Filters popover.

    You can configure the following:

    • Filters that are initially visible in the expanded filter bar. When you set filters to be visible by default, they are displayed under the Basic group in the dialog.
    • Additional groups for the filters
    • Show input fields: Visible by default. You can hide the Hide value/Show value button.

    Users can add additional fields through views.

    The OK and Cancel buttons are displayed when the application team or the user has chosen manual update mode for the filter bar.

    By default, the Reset button is displayed, you cannot change this.

    For more information, see: Adapt Filters.
