SAC Analytics Designer is the development environment for creating dashboards within the SAP Analytics Cloud. The Designer enables the development of complex web applications (Analytic Applications) that can be tailored to individual requirements by means of programming. Thus, SAC offers experienced front-end developers an alternative to the story environment, which follows a more guided reporting approach.
The development environment of the Analytics Designer is similar in parts to the Story environment. As in SAC Story, predefined charts and tables can be added to the canas via drag-and-drop and populated with the required data via the Builder panel. In addition to the objects known from Story, there are a number of elements that are only available as filter settings in Story, such as drop-down menus or radio buttons. These can be designed more freely in terms of their possible uses and interaction behaviour in the designer through scripting. In addition to the linked analysis function available in Story, charts and tables can also be linked using scripting. For this purpose, various functions can be defined for each object on the canvas via scripting.
