Goodbye Xcelsius! Hello Squirrel.
On 31st December 2020 Flash will reach end of life and Xcelsius (SAP Dashboards) will no longer be supported by SAP. This means your Flash dashboards will stop working and you will be unable to use or edit your existing dashboards after this date.
Flash Player end of life — Official statements
Adobe will not issue updates or security patches. We recommend that all users uninstall Flash Player… Flash-based content will be blocked from running in Adobe Flash Player after the end of life date.
By the end of 2020, we will remove the ability to run Adobe Flash in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer across all supported versions of Microsoft Windows. Users will no longer have any ability to enable or run Flash.
End of an era – but not for your dashboards
Squirrel doesn’t rely on Flash and has all the best bits of Xcelsius (SAP Dashboards). It’s been designed so you can carry on from where you left off, with an expert team by your side.

A different view
Troubleshoot your dashboards in Debug mode
A pain-point for many Xcelsius/SAP Dashboard users was testing your dashboards before you exported them. Well, Debug is a neat opportunity to check your project works as intended — It turns on canvas interaction so you can see what’s happening in the spreadsheet as you interact with your project.
