Fiori CRM – iOS Application with Activity History

Fiori CRM


Welcome to part 5 of the blog series on exploring the SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS assistant. In this blog, we will add a timeline to capture the historical activities related to a lead. The previous series of the blog include

Business Scenario

Sales executives are always in the field using their gadgets and engaged in the lead generation process. Often, they would like to have the information about their contacts and leads and would like to know the correspondence history or action items pending on a given lead.

Goal in this blog

To build the below application using Custom Fiori iOS Controls – TimeLine and TimeLineMarker

Fiori CRM

Let’s play with code

Create a view container to build the timeline information as shown. Include 3 prototype cells one each for Open TimelineMarker, Timeline and End TimelineMarker

In the TimeLineViewController implement the UITableViewDelegate, UITableViewDataSource classes

Implement the following functions

numberOfSections(in tableView: UITableView) -> Int {}

tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, numberOfRowsInSection section: Int) -> Int {}

tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, heightForRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> CGFloat


tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, cellForRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> UITableViewCell {}

tableView(_ tableView: UITableView, didHighlightRowAt indexPath: IndexPath) {}


General implementation for the TimeMarkerCell

let cell = tableView.dequeueReusableCell(withIdentifier: cellIdentifier, for: indexPath) as? TimelineCell

cell?.headlineText = infoText[indexPath.row]

cell?.subheadlineText = infoSubText[indexPath.row]

cell?.nodeImage = TimelineNode.complete

cell?.eventText = infoTime[indexPath.row]

cell?.eventImage = #imageLiteral(resourceName: “email”)

cell?.statusImage = #imageLiteral(resourceName: “reminder”)

cell?.subStatusText = “Active”

cell?.attributeText = “60min”

cell?.subAttributeText = “Completed”


Up Next: Watch for the next blog where we will add Touch ID login to the application
