Learn how to avert potential errors and create easier selection screens for your HR department. Variants help you customize input fields to accommodate specific business needs.

Standard SAP screens can be somewhat overwhelming with their many options of input and selection. Create a variant of the selection screen to make fields required or read only or even hide them completely. By controlling the input screen, you can lessen the chance of input errors and help speed the learning process for users by reducing the amount of information to sift through.

Once you have created your perfect selection screen variant, with the help of the security and authorizations team you can set it as the default screen that either all users or selected users get when they execute the transaction.
