How to take back-up and restore Favorites menu
Problem description: Some organizations have IT policy where SAP ID is deleted if users do not logon for certain period (60 days etc.). This is part of cost control measure. Later when user gets SAP ID recreated, old favorites menu will be lost. i.e. user will lose his/ her transactions added in favorites menu before ID deletion. Below are the steps to take back up so that user can restore favorites on their own.
