SAP Easy Access - Standard John Natal 2011 / UMN 4 SAP Easy Access is the standard entry screen displayed after logon. Using the menu path Extras Set start transaction you can select a transaction of your choice to be the default entry screen after logon. You navigate through the system using a compact tree structure that you can adapt to your own specific requirements. Use the menu path Extras Settings to change your view of the tree structure. You can use this to display technical names (transaction codes). You can also create a Favorites list of the transactions, reports, files and Web sites you use most. You can add items to your favorites list using the Favorites menu option or by simply dragging & dropping them with the mouse.
Role-Based User Menu A role describes a set of logically linked transactions. These transactions represent the range of functions users typically need at their workstations. Activity groups (user roles) have to be set up using the Profile Generator so that users of the SAP System can work with user-specific or position-related menus. The authorizations for the activities listed in the menus are also assigned to the users using activity groups. With Release 4.6, predefined activity groups (user roles) from all application areas are included in the standard system. Users who have been assigned to an activity group can choose between the user menu and the SAP standard menu. The above screen shows the role -based user menu for the “Accounts Receivable Supervisor” as an example. You can find other roles that are supplied in the standard SAP System with the corresponding activity groups using the Other menu pushbutton in the SAP Easy Access initial screen.

SAP Data Structure R/3 System clients are organizationally independent. Each client has its own data environment with its own master data, transaction data, user master data, and customizing parameters. Users in different clients co-exist in the same R/3 System, but their data is isolated and cannot be accessed from another client. Only users with the necessary authorizations can view or process data in a specific client. This isolation concept is reflected in R/3 table design, both at the application level and in Customizing, which is a customer-specific adaptation of the R/3 System. This adaption is called client-specific customizing. Apart from this, there are also system-wide adjustments (which usually have to be made only once, such as printer settings) that affect all clients of an R/3 System. This adjustment is called cross-client customizing. Client 000 is defined as the SAP standard and the customer cannot change it. This client serves as a copy template for the creation of further clients. The repository is also cross-client. It consists of ABAP reports, menus, dynpros, all dictionary objects (tables, data elements, and domains), CUAs, and so on. Like cross-client customizing, repository objects affect all clients of an R/3 System. John Natal 2011 / UMN 12
