PREPARATION

You will need a S/4HANA 1610 CAL instance as your S/4HANA solution to complete this exercise. Please check the preparation steps for this course. You will need to connect to your CAL instance in a Web Browser to complete this exercise. All screenshots are shown on Google Chrome. You may also use:

• Firefox

• Microsoft Edge

• IE11 Activating your CAL Instance Activate your CAL instance. Your CAL instance will take at least 10 minutes to activate. It can then take a little while for the system itself to come up. We recommend activated your CAL instance approx. 15 minutes before you intend to start. You will need to know the IP address of your S/4HANA instance. You can find this in the details of your instance in the Cloud Appliance Library. In the INFO tab look for the IP Addresses list. Find the IP address of your SAP S/4HANA 1610 instance. If you are a SAP Customer or Partner this will be an external IP address. If you are a SAP Employee this will be listed as an Internal IP address.

NAVIGATING IN THE FIORI LAUNCHPAD

Using the Fiori Launchpad Header Start by getting to know the main viewports of the Fiori Launchpad and the main Header options. Remember that what features are available will depend on your SAP S/4HANA Cloud or SAP S/4HANA version, and what features your administrator has enabled.

In your Web Browser, bring up the logon screen of your SAP

Fiori Launchpad of your CAL

instance using your IP address in the format: https://<Your IP Address> :44301/sap/bc/ui2/flp Example: If your IP address is 10.79.5.001 the address to your Fiori Launchpad would be: https://10.79.5.001:44301/sap/bc/ui2/flp

Login to the Fiori Launchpad using: User: S4H_MM Password: Welcome1 Be patient. CAL instances are sandpits and have few resources so this can take a little time. Wait a few seconds for the Fiori Launchpad to appear. If it is taking minutes, try using the refresh option in your browser.

You are currently on the Home Page. At the top of the Home Page you can see the Header. Use the Notifications icon in the far right of the Header to move to the Notification Center.

In the Home Page Header, use the Me icon at the far left of the Header to move to the Me Area. NOTE: In your own SAP S/4HANA system your administrator can set this to show your photo or avatar image.
