Don’t miss the new SAP GUI for Windows 7.30! I did :(

on 26th June 2012, SAP released the latest SAPGUI for Windows 7.30.

Here are the brief info about the new release:

SAP GUI for Windows 7.30 is the successor to SAP GUI for Windows 7.20 which will be out of of support as of 9th of April 2013. With the new release SAP GUI for Windows was carefully improved to provide the end-user with an interface where information is presented in a logical and easy-to-understand way. Several visual and usability improvements have been implemented to help users organize and complete their daily work quickly and efficiently.

The new SAP GUI for Windows 7.30 was shipped on 26th of June 2012 and introduces the following useful enhancements:

  • Corbu Design: A new SAP GUI design is available: The Corbu Design. This design comes with a reduced contrast when compared to SAP Signature Design and improves the integration of SAP GUI into other SAP components like NWBC which also offer Corbu Designs.
  • Signature Color Themes: New color themes can be applied system and client specific: Users are enabled to easily select different Signature color themes for test, development or productive systems and clients etc. This leads to a clear overview over the system landscape.
  • Branding Area: A company specific logo (corporate branding, product branding) can be embedded into the top right corner of the SAP screen. This new branding area will help administrators to generate additional corporate communication and corporate identity. It can be used in SAP Signature Design and in Corbu Design.
  • Floating Docking Containers: Docking containers can be positioned individually by end users. Dragging the container with the mouse to north, west, east or south positions helps adjusting the screen layout for individual needs.
  • Personalized TAB Order: Users can define their own TAB order within SAP screens. The new TAB order allows users to jump to the next screen element of interest. Screen elements not included in the TAB order can still be accessed by mouse clicks.
  • System Comments in SAP Logon: In SAP Logon users can add system specific notes or information. This new edit area will help users to manage and comment the system landscape.
  • SNC indication icon in the status bar: A small icon in the SAP GUI status bar indicates whether the connection between SAP GUI and application server is secured (SNC is activated) or not.

An up-to-date list of new features is available in SAP note 1670678.

See below for an image explaining some of the new, exciting features of release 7.30! 

Lifecycle information:

  • Delivery: 26th of June 2012 (“Productive Release” & “Default Release”)
  • End of maintenance: 15th of July 2015 (end of support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010)
  • Please note that SAP GUI for Windows 7.20 will be out of maintenance as of 09th of April 2013 – therefore we recommend to start planning your upgrade to release 7.30 soon after the delivery of the new release.

More detailed information on the lifecycle of SAP GUI can be found in SAP note 147519

      is there also more information on the sap gui, I read a lot of things like, but I can't find for example where and how I can change the tab order ?. the picture suggest just drag and drop but that doesn't work ?? what to do to activate it ? or is it not activated for all modules ?

      • Floating Docking Containers: Docking containers can be positioned individually by end users. Dragging the container with the mouse to north, west, east or south positions helps adjusting the screen layout for individual needs.
      • Personalized TAB Order: Users can define their own TAB order within SAP screens. The new TAB order allows users to jump to the next screen element of interest. Screen elements not included in the TAB order can still be accessed by mouse clicks.

      also curious where and how I can see the difference of block copy ?

      Usability improvements in ALV: Some operations in ALV (like the block copy) have been improved

      what has been improved and how can I test it ?

      kind regards

      Hi !

      Regarding the Branding Area, is there any plan to make it system dependant ?

      I mean like the Color Setting per system.

      Best Regards,

      Alexandre.

      Hello

      Note 1690209 - SAP GUI 7.30 Local Tab Order

      I have not found yet any relevant documentation on setting the local tab order for a screen...

      I've realized there is an extra mdb file to store the information. Still, I miss the "How-to-do-it documentation".... 😕

      Kind regards

      Hi Huseyin,

      Yep, I am aware of this document it relates some new features and some deleted features but nothing else. So you mean to say the rest of the topics are untouched in 7.30 ?

      Generally yes. SAP only reports the changed, added and removed features for new releases.

      I suggest you to install latest patch for SAPGUI 7.30 and then open OSS message if problem persists.

      Also, trying different themes for GUI 7.30 may solve your problem.
