Mobisys MSB App
iOS Universal Business
Before you perform an update of this business app please consult your IT department , which will release the new version for your company!
Using the Mobisys MSB App, you can process out mobile SAP applications on an iPhone and iPad, which were previously created with the Mobisys Solution Builder (MSB) and which are available in your SAP system.
The mobile applications have been realized in the SAP system using a graphical screen designer tool (Mobisys Screen Designer) and by means of ABAP programming.
During configuration of the MSB App, you first configure the connection to an SAP system and to the mobile application.
You log on to the SAP system with your user master data, which must be activated for mobile applications.
After this, you can use the application-specific menu to call the sub-menus and process individual transactions. The transactions are not limited to the display of data from the SAP system. Instead, the postings and changes made can be carried out individually for each application and according to the authorizations defined in the SAP system.
Besides the display and input elements, the following functions are also supported:
• Scanning of bar codes with the camera
• Scanning of barcodes using Linea Pro scanners from Infinite Peripherals
• Output of sounds for errors, warnings or information messages
• Camera function and transfer of photos to the SAP system
• GPS function and transfer of geo-coordinates to the SAP system
• Entry of data without permanent connection to an SAP system and subsequent synchronization in offline applications
If the Mobisys MSB App session is briefly discontinued to call another App or function of the iPhone or iPad, then the MSB App can nevertheless be continued without any problems within the duration specified in the SAP Internet Communication Framework. This means that the session remains active; the same applies if the connection is lost in the interim and needs to be re-established.
