SAP has put out quite a few tutorials on the new Information Design Tool (IDT) in their new community. The table of contents includes topics like “Concept: Navigate the interface” and “Concept: Create a universe” to more detailed tasks such as “Create a data foundation based on a single source relational database” and “Create a shortcut join.” Altogether there are 133 video tutorials currently posted on YouTube. If you’re new to the IDT or are wondering how to do common tasks that you’re used to from the original universe design tool, these tutorials look like they will really help.
Note: at this point I have only watched a few of the videos, and the audio sounds computer generated. But if you don’t have access to training, or are familiar with universe design but aren’t clear where some of your favorite features went, they should prove very useful. Just skip the first 45-50 seconds to get past all of the introductory template stuff.
