On behalf of the SAP Screen Personas development and product management team, I am happy to announce the availability of SAP Screen Personas 1.1, also known by its official name, SAP Screen Personas RCS 1.0 SP1.
The theme of this release is enterprise readiness. We have listened to the feedback from some of our early customers and extended the functionality to make it easier for them to deploy Personas in large enterprise environments.
Enhancements include improvements in the following areas:
System-wide settings allow you to define themes and properties on all transactions, even if you do not personalize them.
We also made it easier to manage users and groups along with the flavors they can access. This capability is now linked to the SAP group settings.
Version 1.0 ran in English and German.
We have added support for (in alphabetical order) Chinese, French, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
In addition, it is easier to translate flavors. You can export all your personalized labels, translate them, and, create a new flavor in a new language.
Since we designed SAP Screen Personas to improve usability of SAP GUI screens, we are constantly looking for ways to make Personas as easy as possible to use. Our customers have made several suggestions, which we have integrated into the product. Some notable items include:
Cut and paste information from/to SAP screens (Ctrl-Y / Ctrl-C feature)
Numbering in scripts
Commenting in scripts
Transparency as a color
Simpler ways to make fancy buttons
Easier dialog boxes
Image preview before uploading
We have made it easier to use SAP Screen Personas with NWBC.
Personas now supports JAWS and other text readers.
Bugs happen. We fixed them. This is always part of Service Packs.
You can read the full details in SAP Note 1845927.
If you are already a Personas customer (thank you!), you can download SAP Screen Personas 1.0 Service Pack 1 from Service Marketplace.
