Addition/re-direction of transaction in MD04 to Simplify favorite transactions List

Dear All,

In this blog we will some tricky solution to simplify the user transactions List /favorite transaction code list. As we know that some of user will have limited transaction in SAP as per their job role.


Procurement user/purchase user will have authorization to create Purchase order ,Goods receipt  also Purchase Manager will have authorization  to release the Purchase order & other transactions

As we all know that any material with its current situation can be identified in single transaction that is called MD04 & I should say that it would be heart of material current status report & will be frequently used by everyone.So that we can use only one transaction to redirect to any of  transaction code which we most used t code by user. So that user no need to memorize those list and no need to create favorite list in their role as well.

Because I faced this issue in one my one of my implementation to full fill that I found these option can fully fitted to them.(User Saying that I cant remember the transaction list.)

Enter into MD04 transaction to fix the navigation path. & choose the below,

We can assign the most used transaction in navigation option


If transaction to continued in the current transaction In new screen can be unset & to open in new window can be set .Even custom T code can be also be re-directed..

Text in Menu option will be displayed din menu bar navigation.

Here I choosing releasing of purchase order ME29N

Choose the icon as per the relevant activities of the transaction.Here I am choosing release Icon Since I am using release purchase order.

Enter the text to be displayed on the icon ( Ex- Release PO)

Till above steps common for all material.

if we want specific Procurement type/ material type / MRP type/ MRP group wise redirected transactions list  below steps also to be included to categorize it by role. here I have chosen releasing of purchase order. Because it would be mostly applicable for externally procured item with raw material type.

Procurement type: F

Material type- ROH

save it for continue.

It can also be imported

I have filtering Material type as I configured as ROH and Procurement type as F


Enter the transaction MD04

Form MD04 It has re directing to ME29N as per the configuration.

Following navigation to be  used to change the exiting configuration & to know the shortcut key.


If and changes required comments will be appreciable.


Best Regards,

      Hello all,

      Does anyone know how to set “ParaValue” to be the same as the search criteria in MD04? It would need to change based on my input in MD04

      I want to create a favorite that will take me to the transaction LX02 and will fill “Material” (MAT) criteria based on what I searched in MD04 (what is currently in MD04 material field).

      Thank you all in advance
