Intro

Choosing the right floorplan is not always easy. Roughly speaking, SAP Fiori offers floorplans that:

  • Provide an overview of information and tasks: overview page
  • List several objects: list report, analytical list report, worklist
  • Manage an object: object page, wizard
  • Allow navigation to work on one object: initial page

For a quick check of which floorplan to use, see below. For more information, go to the respective floorplan article. 

Information
Except for the wizard and initial page, all floorplans are available as SAP Fiori elements.
