On the Catalog Selection pop-up screen in SAP GUI, a new Sort button is available to sort codes via description or codekeys (e.g. notification header, items, causes, tasks and activities).
In the SAP standard system, the entries in a codegroup are sorted by their codekey by default. You can use this button to sort the codes within a codegroup by their definitions in alphabetical order instead. (Note that the order of codegroups remains unchanged.) Pressing this button again will change the order back to the sorting by codekey.
The new functionality is now available with SAP Note 2870983, or with the SAP enhancement package 7 and SAP enhancement package 8 for SAP ERP as well as for SAP S/4HANA. You can enable the new functionality by implementing either the SAP note or the corresponding support packages and switching on the Enterprise Asset Management Part 14 business function. To find out more, refer to the linked note.
If you have any questions on the functionality, please leave a comment, and I’ll be happy to answer!
