5.3 Customize SAP with Liquid UI SDK

You can simplify the SAP screens using Liquid UI SDK. Once the SAP screens are customized, you can view these simplified screens on your SAP GUI, iOS, and Android.

For example, consider Create Material screen. The tcode is MM01. On MM01 transaction we have a dropdownlist for selecting the Industry sector type. If we simplify the dropdownlist to radiobutton, the user can simply select the type with just a single click instead of scrolling down the complete items in the dropdown menu.

To customize the transaction with Liquid UI SDK, please follow the below steps:

  1. Login to SAP.
  2. Launch Liquid UI Designer.
  3. Navigate to MM01 Transaction.
  4. Sync Designer with SAP GUI by clicking refresh button on Designer.
  5. The MM01 transaction on SAP GUI and Liquid UI Designer will appear as follows:
