3228414 - There are no Dynamic Text prompts when typing "[" to prompt the possible system variables when using Schedule a Publication in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • While using the Schedule a Publication feature in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC) and trying to define a Subject for the email.
    As mentioned in Step 8 of above help page article, typing in "[" should prompt the options for creating dynamic text.
    However, there is no prompt appearing after typing in the character "[".


  • SAP Analytics Cloud (Enterprise) 2021.8.17

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Schedule a Publication in SAC.
  2. Follow the steps between steps 1-7 of help page article.
  3. At step 8, type "[" and see that there is no prompt for dynamic text creation.


  • Currently there are some keyboard language settings that don't allow the popup for Dynamic Text creation for the subject and body field using the Schedule a Publication feature.


Development team will address this limitation in one of the future versions of SAC as an enhancement request. So more keyboard language settings will support the feature.
For now, there are 2 possible workarounds available:

  1. Typing the dynamic text directly or pasting these texts in respective profile language, in case the language is English these are the exact texts:
    [#month] [#year] [#date] [#time]
  2.  Switch to the keyboard language which are currently being supported: English (US) or French(Cajun French US Keyboard).
