Most Basis Technologies’ customers utilise around 20-30% of the total available functionality of ActiveControl.

In most cases, there are Features that are never used as part of the customer’s workflow and processes within ActiveControl, but are still seen by users, inevitably sometimes leading to avoidable questions / confusion. Common examples of these include the Merge and Transport of Copies functions that are not relevant for all SAP customers, and also some of the individual ActiveControl screens such as the [Additional Data] screen on the Business Task, or the [Planning Status] dropdown field on the Business Task.

The ActiveControl Web Platform introduces a new Feature Deactivation screen via which Administrators can globally hide some of the App Tiles / Screens / Tabs and Buttons that are not used within their own ActiveControl implementation and processes.

As of ActiveControl Web Platform 9.00, the following capabilities can be deactivated (hidden):

Business Task

  • Show Progress Diagram (Project Milestones)
  • Show RAG Section
  • Show RAG Information – DevEnforcer
  • Show RAG Information – Conflict Analysis
  • Show RAG Information – Aged Transport
  • Show RAG Information – Risk Guard
  • Show RAG Information – Dormant Transport
  • Show Scheduling Tab
  • Show Additional Data Tab
  • Show Attachments Tab
  • Show Planning Status

Project screen

  • Show Progress Diagram (Project Milestones)
  • Show Attachments Tab
  • Show User Assignment Tab

Transport Form screen

  • Show Attachments Tab

Test Results screen

  • Show ‘Save and Close’ button for all users

Approvals and Imports

  • Show ‘Approve and Import’ button


  • Show Priority Approvals Tile

Figure: Feature Deactivation screen within the Web Platform can be used to globally hide Features that are not being used by the Customer.
