ASUG has an upcoming webcast on the new site this week – called “Idea Place Product Session Migration and the New Customer Influence Continuous Influencing Process“.  Register here.

I know I’ve been struggling with the new site, but after spending some time on it, it was worth it.

First, finding your way:

 

Go to https://www.sap.com/about/customer-involvement/input-beta-testing.influence-opportunities.html

Click on Customer Connection

Yesterday I thought the links did not work, but some of them do.  So if the links above don’t work, review the SAP Note on the right.

Here are some interesting ideas already delivered:

2383913 – Customer Connect CO: Enable overall on/off switch for OKP1 (Period Lock)

“This SAP Note delivers the solution for the Customer Connect request D11135, which enable over all on/off switch for transaction OKP1 (Period Lock).” Source: SAP

Old OKP1 before improvement:

After:

Now the controller can block/unlock all.

______________________________________

PS: New transaction for mass status change 

“New transaction ‘CNMASSSTATUS’ for mass status change.” Source; SAP

Sample screen:

______________________________________________________

Generic Search of Transactions, Documents

 

From the SAP Note:

“SE16T, KOBJ, KTABL, and KTRAN

Transaction

KOBJ is used to search for any objects in any tables

KTABL is used to search for tables and table names

KTRAN is used to search for transactions

SE16T combines the functions of all three transactions and is intended primarily for the IT department.” Source: SAP

These are really interesting.  I tried a few below:

 

KOBJ transaction:

So I searched for an element and then it comes back and says it is a WBS.

KTABL transaction

I searched for BKPF table and it returns tables with that name.

KTRAN transaction

Searching for CJ20N

SE16T transaction

I entered a document number and it found an accounting document

I entered another number and it found the number is a cost center

___________________________________________________

2350462 – Customer Connect CO: Transaction KS01N for mass creation of cost center master data (KS12N)

KS01N – mass cost center creation

___________________________________________________

Navigation to user details in case of message stating that object is locked

Example:

 

___________________________________________________

1851646 – New GOS icon

Indicator that attachments exist for a master record is shown below:

______________________________________________

2440758 – Improvements for auditing FI documents (technical data in change documents, creator of parked document)

See example below (FB03, document header)

______________________________________________

Reporting in AP/AR and G/L with time dependent master data

Look at all the new reports:

Source: SAP
FI-AP: RFKEPL00_AUDIT, RFKKVZ00_AUDIT, RFKSLD00_AUDIT, RFKUML00_AUDIT
FI-AR: RFDEPL00_AUDIT, RFDKVZ00_AUDIT, RFDOPO10_AUDIT, RFDSLD00_AUDIT, RFDUML00_AUDIT
FI-GL: RFBELJ00_AUDIT, RFEPOJ00_AUDIT, RFSBWA00_AUDIT, RFSOPO00_AUDIT, RFSSLD00_AUDIT, RFSUSA00_AUDIT

Sample:

Master Data on Key Date is new

    Thanks so much for posting these! I’m totally implementing the OKP1 note, sick and tired on checking 1001 checkbox in QA system all the time.

    This makes me wonder why the SAP project managers for Customer Influence don’t post updates on SCN. I’ve observed the same thing in the SD project – several great improvements were delivered but I bet most customers don’t even know.

    These gems seem to be very well hidden. Why, oh why?
