Creating Your Own Weekly Calendar Screen

You can modify the weekly calendar screen to suit your own specific requirements.

You can change the settings for weekly calendar screen in Customizing. Here you can set up the structure of the Information section, as well as determine the fields to be displayed in the Entry section.

When modifying the weekly calendar screen, you can position the fields anywhere you want in the line. You can minimize fields you do not need, or hide them completely.

Save your settings. The next time you call this weekly calendar screen, the system displays the individualized version of the screen that you just saved.

Procedure

  1. Select a weekly calendar screen.
  2. Modify the weekly calendar screen to suit your requirements.
  3. · Positioning Fields

    a) By using the mouse, you can easily select the field whose position you want to change in the entry section.

    b) Press the left mouse button when the white cross appears.

    c) Without releasing the mouse button, drag the field to its new position.

    d) Release the mouse button.

    The field is now in its new position.

    · Minimizing or Hiding a Field

    a) You can use the mouse to select the field that you want to hide.

    b) Press the left mouse button when the black cross appears.

    c) While still holding down the left mouse button, minimize the field to the desired size. Release the mouse button.

    There may be fields containing important data which were hidden when you were making the settings in Customizing. Infotype records which contain information in hidden fields can only be changed using single screen maintenance, and not by using the weekly calendar.

    Information in fields which were completely hidden is also checked for plausibility (that is, time constraints) when you save the infotype records. Thus, you may receive system messages, warnings or other error-related information without being able to see what caused the messages on the screen.

    · Maximizing or Showing a Field

    a) You can use the mouse to select the field that you want to show on the screen. Select the right edge of the field you want to display.

    b) Press the left mouse button when the black cross appears.

    c) While still holding down the left mouse button, maximize the field to the size you want. Release the mouse button.

  4. Saving your own weekly calendar screen.
  1. Select the field above the right scroll bar and press the left mouse button.

A dialog box appears. You can save your own weekly calendar screen as a variant here.

b) Choose Save as.

c) Enter a name for your variant in the dialog box.

d) Activate the Standard setting field if you want to display this variant in the future.

e) Save your entries.

f) From the Table settings dialog box, select the variants you want to use as the Standard setting or Current variant.

The next time you call the weekly calendar, the system displays the variant you defined as the standard setting.
