SAP MRS : Influence MRS web planning board UI elements’ text, quickinfo ..

SAP MRS – MultiResource Scheduling is a resource scheduling solution. Application help, installation guides etc can be found here: SAP Multiresource Scheduling 10 – SAP Help Portal Page

Ever wondered if UI elements such as Assignments, Time-specifications, Resource, Sumbar, TravelTime can be changed with respect to text and quickinfo/tool tip?

Here is a quick guide to achieve this:

SAP GUI users can easily use the BAdI /MRSS/SGU_DESC_DETER.

This BAdI has intuitive methods to achieve this.

However for the WEB version of the planning board has a different story!

1. Refer to the MRS IMG node : /n/MRSS/IMG

                                                             -> Set Up Scheduler Workplace

                                                                       -> Workplace Profiles

                                                                                -> Web-Based User Interface

                                                                                          -> Define Graphical Elements for Web-Based Planning Board

2. In the left hand side Dialog Structure navigate to Maintain Text Templates.

Instead of editing standard text templates i would recommend to create Z text templates in the right hand side of the screen.

It is very easy to create a Z text template via the ‘New Entries’ button.

Template Text example can be :

<HTML><H2>Assignment:</H2><UL><LI>Begin:{BEG_UZEIT+0(2)}:{BEG_UZEIT+2(2)} {BEGDA+6(2)}.{BEGDA+4(2)}.{BEGDA+0(4)}</LI><LI>End:{END_UZEIT+0(2)}:{END_UZEIT+2(2)} {ENDDA+6(2)}.{ENDDA+4(2)}.{ENDDA+0(4)}</LI><LI>Description:{Description}</LI></UL></HTML>

The above template text is purely an example and renders text with Begin Date/time End Date/time of assignment and Note.

You can explore more fields of assignments/time specs or any UI elements to use them in the template text.

      So this is limited to the Web-based MRS-version, correct? Does this mean there's no 'easy' option to do this in SAPGui-version?

      Hey Nic,

      It is much more easier i would say for the SAP GUI users.

      BAdI /MRSS/SGU_DESC_DETER is used for this purpose, which is self explanatory.

      Let me know if you need more info on this.

      I have a question: In web planning board resource view, can we drag and drop demand on a resource (GUI deoes allow this)?

      Hi Kathryn, Unfortunately, Drag and drop demand on a resource is only available in SAP GUI planning board. Web based planning board doesn't have that functionality
