Highlights of this release
- Extended Planning and Analysis

You may now format sections in you stories and make them stand out using the new dedicated options in the user preferences. This allows you to update section properties, body styles, and heading styles to both new and existing sections.
Extended Planning and Analysis
We have simplified people assignment for your calendar events. You may now add individual users, as well as SAP Analytics Cloud teams as owners, assignees, reviewers or viewers ("Shared With").
If you have defined teams in your dimension attributes, and you generate events along this driving dimension with the calendar wizard, the generated events will be assigned to the specified teams.
The creation of process hierarchies for your calendar events is a lot easier now – when you create a new task or process, you can add the required parent process in the create dialog. If you selected the process in the calendar and started creating a child event, the process will be pre-selected as parent process.
When copying a task or a process, you may select the parent process for the copied event in the copy dialog.
