Set Up New Product Attribute Views in Just Minutes

Take advantage of new functionality in the CRM WebClient UI in SAP CRM 2007 and SAP CRM 7.0 that allows you to quickly generate the views for new product attributes. You can do it in just three basic steps.
Key Concept

A product set type is the standard way to enhance products with new standard or custom attributes. You can assign these set types to products via hierarchies. By default, the system adds a SAPGUI view into the product maintenance.

The CRM WebClient UI allows the automatic generation of views for new product set types. You use these set types to add new attributes to your product master data. The generated view shows all the fields of the set type in a simple layout. The system determines the appearance of the attribute fields automatically (e.g., input field, check box, date field, drop-down list, or value help).

I’ll give you a simple example of how you can set up the automated view generation in just three steps. In my example in Figure 1, I added the new external color option 10 (Black) for my test product. I created this example with SAP CRM 7.0 SP 1. However, this feature is also available with SAP CRM 2007.
