Pickers & Indicators at Your Service
We are all in a hurry, trying to complete more tasks in less time and every second matters. Common tasks like creating a document, generating a report, or posting a transaction consist of multiple tiny steps and decisions like setting date range or entering quantity and price. To reduce the time spent on these micro actions, SAP Business One introduces a set of pickers and indicators:
When activated, the respective pickers appear in the active fields as icons. Just click it and set the required value without having to consider the specific form of the data. For example, when setting date range in a report you just click the icon and choose the date from the calendar.
If you activate the indicators, small icons appear in the respective fields telling you if in a given field you can open a “List of …” window, enter user-define values, or whether the field contains translatable values.
Available in SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA and SAP Business One. This tip and all the other tips are available on the Tip of the week community page. You can also visit the Implementation Arena for useful implementation tips.
