0007879: Easy access to the window/report/process via short command/transaction code(tcode)
|Description||As of now, Openbravo provide standard way of access the window/report/process via the menu tree, also it is planned to introduce the dashboard and bookmark in the future release, but I do strongly suggest to have the feature to allow user access the window/report/process via short command from every page.|
I have been working as SAP engineer for more than 6 years, we do feel SAP's tcode(short command accessible from every screen) feature is very convenient for both user and IT, especially when we need to frequently switch to different screen during testing.
|Proposed Solution||1.create a new table and the corresponding window to store the tcode definition, the structure is just like the menu item|
2.have a command field(text field) and a small command button( with tick symbol , associate the ENTER key to this button) on the left upper corner.
3.Implement a global command interpreter to execute the tcode/short command when user input the command and clicked the command button/ pressed the ENTER key.
if the user is at the initial logon window, the short command can be directly executed, if the user is in the running window/report/process, the following prefix before the actual short command should be supported.
/nxxxx end the current window/report/process
/Oxxxx leave the current window and create new one
/next logout the system

More info: Help info of the command field
You can execute the following commands in this field with Enter:
o To call a transaction
- in the same session (window)
Enter: /nxxxx (xxxx = transaction code).
- in the same session (window), whereby the initial screen is
Enter: /*xxxx (xxxx = transaction code).
- in an additional session,
Enter: /oxxxx (xxxx = transaction code).
o To end the current transaction
Caution: Unsaved changes are lost without warning
o To delete the current session.
o To generate a session list
o To end the current transaction and return to the starting menu
o To log off from the system
o To log off from the system without a confirmation prompt
Caution: Changes that were not saved are lost without warning.
|Thanks for the feature request. I appreciate the idea of having easy access from anywhere to certain frequently used pages / views / reports but don't feel lots of affection for doing this via a command line in a field. The newly proposed My Workspace allows (video 3 on http://openbravo.com/concepts/ [^]) for user defined shortcuts (bookmarks) and maybe we should even have a quicker access from every page via e.g. a flyout menu in the toolbar for these.|
