0007879: Easy access to the window/report/process via short command/transaction code(tcode)

DescriptionAs 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 Solution1.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
TagsNo tags attached.

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 [^]) 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.
