How to Link the VA03 flavor - From Dashboard

HI,

I created a flavor A for Dashboard and one of the button in dashboard is to display sales order. But, the sales order display is created as another flavor B to hide the tabs and fields. Now, when I click the Display sales order from dashboard, it is taking to the normal VA03 transaction and not th flavor which I created. How to link both of them, sothat when I click the Dispaly sales order from Dashboard...it will show the flavor which I created with hidden taabs and fields.

Thanks,

You must either assign the flavor as the default to your user or, as preferred, to a role the user has.

Alternatively, you could have a website button with the particular flavor's URL link, but doing this via regular assignment would be my preferred choice.

My solution to this would be to make the "Display Sales Order" button on the dashboard a script button, and have the script call the VA03 transaction and switch to the desired flavour.

Both of Tamas Hoznek's solutions work also, of course, but I like mine better :-) Seriously, though, which solution you choose will depend somewhat on context. If different people might have different flavours for VA03 then doing this via role assignment would be best. If you always want to force a particular flavour when VA03 is accessed from your dashboard, I'd go with the script.

Steve,

Thanks. One question.....how do I record in script to switch to desired flavour ? The recording is happening until I go to VA03 and after that picking the flavour is not being recorded. Could you please provide the steps to do this ?

Thanks for your help,

Well, the script recorder should record the flavour switch. It always has for me. But now that I try it to verify this, I find it doesn't. Hmmm....

So, you'll just have to add the flavour switch manually. The code looks like this:

session.utils.changeFlavor("005056AB4BFF1EE7ACFC547642E8095C");

Where does that long flavour ID come from? On your flavour bar, click on the chain-link icon for your flavour

That will give you a long URL, the final part of which is that ID:

Hope that helps.

Steve.

Thanks Steve. It worked.

Another question.

1. How do we make the flavor default and then remove the default option ?

2. In my script where I want to read the Warranty end date from the Warranty tab for the material / serial number via Tcode IQ03 and also sold TO party data from the sales and distribution tab.

First I recorded the script to read the warranty end date which works and then went on change mode of the script to record the change tab from warranty to sales and distribution. But the recording does not happen when you change the tab.

How can I resolve this ?

Many thanks for your inputs.

Can you please ask these as separate questions? That way, if others have the same questions, it will be easier for them to find the answers.

Thanks,
Steve.

Hi Tamas,

I tried by having website button and copied the flavor URL. But, When I click the web site button it is not taking anywhere.

Could you please provide the steps for this to have the link copied? Thanks.

Also, I would like to know, how to make the flavor as default to user ? if we make it as default, will it be applicable only when they click VA03 button from dashboard ?

Thanks again,

-Sundaram
