This is about the feature which is most awaited by many of the End Users and Consultants too.
And that feature is – The search result page should retain the sort order for the user throughout the session as well for any new session similar to the saved search functionality.
I have interacted with end users who felt, the search page should remember the sort order, instead of making users to sort the search results every time manually when they perform a search on the attribute they need as well in every new session.
That would definitely save them a few clicks and increase their productivity & usability.
This had been posted in the UI Wish list as well in the wiki https://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/CRM/CRM+WebClient+UI+Wish+List
When these users complained about this, me and one of my colleague felt won’t it be good to have a configuration feature which would enable us as consultants to configure on which column field and in which order( ascending or descending ) the search results should be sorted.
So finally I think that wish is fulfilled now.
I have come across this note which speaks about the new Table Personalization enhancements features which are introduced in the latest Service Packs.
To have access to these new features you must install the relevant service pack as below:
WEBUI 701 SP11
WEBUI 731 SP08
WEBUI 747 SP01
I am awaiting a system with the new SP level to check on how this exciting feature works.
Nevertheless this is a great feature which enables users to personalize the sorting, filtering and fixed columns for tables across the Web Client UI.
At the same time it is giving the Consultants/Power users the functionality to configure the sorting and fixed columns for all the users.
Hope this blog will help the consultants who have complaining-users about this missing feature!
