Shortcuts and Filters in SAP Business ByDesign

I want to share two simple, yet very useful hints on how to navigate through SAP Business ByDesign with you: Shortcuts and Filters. They can make your everyday worklife easier and really help to save time.

If you use views or tasks in SAP Business ByDesign regularly, you want to navigate there on the fastest possible way.

Using Shortcuts

Especially for Business Users with many Work Centers, but also for any frequently recurring Tasks, SAP Business ByDesign offers a very convenient timesaver: the Shortcuts that you have access to at any time, no matter what the currently displayed view is.

Just click on the small arrow with green plus sign for the view or task that you would like to add to the shortcuts – in our example, the task “New sales order”.


Then you can click the large arrow for Shortcuts and see a list of your shortcuts.

Alternatively, you can call up to ten shortcuts from the keyboard – if you move the mouse over your new shortcut, the matching combination of keys will be displayed, in our example, CTRL + SHIFT + 0.


There is also another equally easy way:

Using Filters

Just click on the ^-icon on the bottom left, and then simply type what you are looking for (1).

In our example we want to use filters to navigate to Application and User Management, to the view Business Users. Just click on the ^-icon and type “User”.


After entering the first few letters, a search box appears (2).

You can now see in the list, with a blue underlay, the “Business Users” view in the work center “Application and User Management” (3).

If you want to navigate to the view “Business Users” in the Work Center “Audit”, you can use the arrow keys to navigate there. Once the desired search result is underlaid in blue, press ENTER or click on it to quickly navigate there.
