With the release of SAP Note 1602520 two new features that where developed by SAP in the Continuous Improvement (CI) Process are now available for CRM 2007, 7.0 and 7.0 EhP1 users. The new features are called "Central Edit" and "One Hit - Direct Display".
This features where requested in Wave 1 of the Continuous Improvement (CI) Process. The process was started as a pilot in the CRM Area. SAP reached out also to DSAG (German speaking SAP Users). In November 2011 the development requests where posted in the DSAG CRM forum. At least 5 companies had to provide their commitment that they would like to use the new functionality. After taking this hurdle SAP developed the functionality and presented it in January 2011. As many applications had to be adjusted to provide the new features it took until last week to get the note released.
Let me now introduce this new features to you:
You can now enable a central button in the Work Area Toolbar which enables you to switch into change mode for all Assignment Blocks. So when you have to add products and partners to an Opportunity you don't have to click the Edit List button in the products and again in the Partners Assignment Block. A single click on the central Edit button and all Assignment Blocks are ready for data entry.
One Hit - Direct Display
You're using the advanced or central search in the CRM applications. When a search query finds a unique hit, then this object is directly displayed. You don't have to click on the object in the search result list. So if you search for a specific Opportunity ID or Customer ID you enter the number, press enter and the details are directly displayed. You don't have to click the details link in the search result list.
Check the linked Notes in the Central SAP Note 1602520. You can implement all the notes using SNOTE starting from SAP CRM 2007 (6.0) SP 06, 7.0 and 7.0 EhP1.
