Any of the available features within BPC Web, BPC for Office, and BPC Administration can be utilized by a business process flow. This document describes how to enhance the look & feel of the BPFs by providing a graphical view to the status of the BPFs. However, this doesn’t involve any kind of enhancements in the BPF as such. Instead, this guide helps you to have a graphical representation of the status of different BPFs in your Application Set. Usually, when a user runs a particular BPF, it prompts the user for Entity, Category, and Time dimension members. Once provided, the BPF opens a screen with the different steps involved and the user proceeds by executing each of these steps in a sequential manner. A general BPF will look something like below.  As a consultant, if we can provide something extra on top of this and make it look something like below.   Customizing Business Process Flows SAP COMMUNITY NETWORK SDN - sdn.sap.com | BPX -  bpx.sap.com | BOC - boc.sap.com © 2009 SAP AG 4 The left half of the above figure shows the list of all the steps involved in this particular BPF. The right half shows the status of this BPF executed on various data regions (combination of Entity, Category, and Time). Pre-Requisites To achieve the target of having the BPF in the above manner, we first need to have few files with us. 1. Image for GREEN  signal (can be found in the BPC server - BPC:\Websrvr\Web\Images\green-check2.gif) 2. Image for  YELLOW  signal (BPC:\Websrvr\Web\Images\warnicon_small.gif) 3. Image for the RED  signal (BPC:\Websrvr\Web\Images\cancel-red.gif) 4. ASPX file to display the status, as above figure. Name this file as BPFStatusReport.ASPX Copy the first 3 image files from the specified paths to BPC:\Websrvr\Web in the BPC server. Create an ASPX file as described in the Appendix section.
