Transaction variant

Lots of clients who wish to make their SAP transactions dummy-proof by making fields mandatory, closing fields for editing or craving for default values.

The first transaction allows you to create a transaction variant where it is possible to hide fields, make them mandatory, add default values, add voice recognition, opt for world peace, etc. OK so the last two maybe not, but the message is: “you can do a lot of modifying here.” The second transaction SE93 allows you to link the variant to a new home made transaction code. Your customer will love you till the end of times because of this.
