It is easy to extend your user interface with new tabs, windows, and fields without any need for manual developments, which enables higher quality and faster development. You can also create windows manually to cover your most specific user interface requirements.
Multitasking in Real Time
This system enables end users to be more productive by working simultaneously with documents on different tabs or multiple transactions. If you’ve started to register a new sales order and you notice your customer hasn’t been created after entering some data (happens all the time), just navigate directly from the customer field to the customer form in a new tab. Here, create your customer and use it in your sales document.
Customizable Workspace and Widgets
Users can access all recently visited windows and documents from an easily customizable portal-style homepage. They can administer the available widgets here too. Widgets are user interface elements that are either part of a generated window or are placed in a user’s workspace tab.

This is possible by setting up the user access level and the data access layer at a table level.
