Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Alex, and welcome to my course Mastering Your SAP GUI. What distinguishes a professional from a beginner? As a beginner you use your work tool, as a professional you master it. SAP GUI is your work tool. If you don't use it in the right way, then it slows down your work. If you don't master it, you make many repeated and time wasting tasks in your daily work. For example, how do you make sure about you are in the right system? A professional would set a different look for each systems and with this making the decision very simple. Or what do you do if a standard transaction have lots of unnecessary screen elements, and it is too complex to work with? A professional would create a new transaction variant and customize the standard SAP screen layouts, according to the requirements, without changing any line of above code. Or what would you do if you would have to execute a report every single day, and executing that report you have to enter a master date interval each time? A professional would create a new variant and would set a dynamic date calculation variable. This course will help you becoming a professional SAP user by learning the practical usage of the SAP GUI. Some of the major topics that we will cover include changing the ABAP editor theme, setting the company logo, creating transaction variants with SHD0, using GuiXT scripts, using date calculation variables, or even using parameter IDs. By the end of this course you will know all the necessary tips and tricks that will help you to master your work tool, the SAP GUI. Before beginning the course you should have at least a beginner level understanding of the SAP software. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn SAP with the Mastering Your SAP GUI course at Pluralsight.
