Welcome to Analysis Prime University! This tutorial will walk you through accessing your profile to edit your home screen settings and preferences. We’ll also show you how to personalize your home screen by changing the background and logo and adding home screen notes.

To begin, follow these steps:

  1. From your tenant’s homepage, locate and select your profile. It is usually located in the top-right corner of the screen.
  2. In the drop-down menu, click on “Home Screen Settings.” This will open the Edit Home Screen pop-up window.

Now, let’s explore the different customization options available to you:

  1. Default Tab: By default, the first tab that appears on your home screen is “Today.” If you prefer a different tab to be displayed initially, you can make the desired selection in the Edit Home Screen window. In our example, we will keep it as “Today.”
  2. Background: The default background is the SAP light background. However, to give your home screen a fresh look, you can choose a different background option. Feel free to experiment and select the one that suits your style and preferences.
  1. Logo: If you wish to add a personal touch or showcase your company’s logo on the home screen, you can upload a custom logo. Alternatively, you can choose not to have a logo displayed at all.
  2. Home Screen Tiles: You have control over which tiles appear on your home screen. You can customize it by including or excluding specific tiles based on your needs. For example, you can toggle the “Recent Stories” or “Recent Analytic Applications” tiles according to your preferences.

Once you have made the desired changes to your home screen settings, click “Okay” to save the modifications.

Remember, you can also create home screen notes to remind yourself of important tasks or information. Here’s how:

  1. Go to your profile and select “New Home Screen Note.”
  2. Give your note a title and add the desired text. These notes are private and visible only to you.
  1. After adding the note, select “Okay” to save it. Each time you log in, the note will appear on your home screen as a helpful reminder.

If you ever want to remove a home screen note, simply click on the ellipsis (three dots) next to the note and select “Delete.” Confirm the action when prompted.

That’s it! You’ve learned how to access your profile to edit your home screen settings and preferences. You can create a personalized and efficient workspace by customizing your background, logo, and home screen tiles. Additionally, adding home screen notes allows you to keep important information at your fingertips.
