Manage and control your SAP environment with ease and accountability
For training in the rollout phase, the above documents and records proved very helpful. The tool has supported our SAP instructors in user training. The automatic documentation in Word serves as a training manual. Recorded processes are particularly useful for SAP transactions, because no one can remember all the transaction steps of a main process. All areas of work are directly accessible via a table of contents. To answer questions from SAP users not only orally but also in the form of screen recordings, key users and support staff can quickly "film" and publish the processes in question. The user can view both his input and the results in the Personal Navigator. This means that the errors are almost completely eliminated. There are also other offers on the market, but this tool has proven itself in practical use.
In order to continue to communicate with the backbone and to use the services of SAP, it is necessary to move to this new infrastructure by January 2020. This requires the following update: ・ SAP Solution Manager SAP Solution Manager 7.2 SPS07 or SPS08 (recommended) ・ Focused Run: Focused Run 2.00. The download via the Note Wizard (Transaction SNOTE) will only work if the notes are digitally signed. Note the SAP hints here.

The tool records specific process steps, while the user operates the SAP R/3 4.6C application we use. Here's how. Together with the user of a department, a transaction is triggered in the ERP system. The recording of the process takes place simultaneously in the background. It can then be displayed as often as you like in the "see it mode" of the ondemand software. An extension is the playback in the "Try It" or "Do It" mode. In this case, the tool moves the end user to the appropriate input fields of the mask during the SAP session with the cursor. It does not matter whether the user works in a test environment or in the production system for self-training. The Do It variant shows the ERP user in a small window, where the next step in the SAP application has to be taken. In this form of knowledge transfer, the specialist user works independently according to the workflow scheme configured in the SAP system. The advantage: After a basic instruction, the other intensive support is almost completely eliminated. If there are changes in the process flow, the recorded film can be adjusted in the right place. After republishing the sequence, it will be available to ERP users. In our company, we have stored and published the complete instructions on the intranet. All SAP users can view the films recorded in XML format. If the employee has appropriate permissions, he or she will be guided through the transactions. If he has any questions, he has an online help. If it is not enough, the records can also be published as a Word file. For 18 different reports in the SAP module for project control, Word documents in a volume of about 100 pages are generated automatically by the ondemand tool. These files are available with full table of contents, page formatting, screen screens and, if necessary, reports (in Excel format). In about four weeks we recorded all SAP modules using the Personal Navigator and documented them as described. The offer can be revised and extended at any time. After a rollout, users often want more advanced functions that go beyond the standard runs. The tool is also suitable for documenting these. For a later integration test, the records shall be used to compile the documentation.
Your employees will be relieved enormously. So you have more capacity to take care of strategic projects and are not concerned with daily support problems.
