The Easy DMS application Files are freely downloadable for SAP Customers from
Service Marketplace. We have got the application files downloaded by BASIS
support and have kept it in a shared Folder from where IS&T Engineer can have the
application installed to user machines. We are on ECC 6.0, EHP 5, with a SQL
Database and Windows 7 Operating system. The .exe files in the following EDMS
application files needed to be sequentially installed on our machines

- EasyDMS71SP04_0-20006126
- EasyDMS71SP04P_3-20006126

Also as a prerequisite all DMS related Backend configurations should have been
done in SAP.

2. Once downloaded, the Easy DMS .exe file is to be installed on your machine post
which you will see an SAP Easy DMS icon on your Desktop.

3. On double clicking to the icon, for first time, it will ask you to Link to the appropriate
SAP system (say SAP SAN/TST/PRD) etc. You can in fact save all Login details and
password for easily logging in the next time. However, SAP recommends not saving
password for security reasons.
4. It opens up a navigable Windows explorer kind of environment

At the top task bar you will have following icons for easy navigation: Login/Logoff, Create,
Edit File, Check in, Search etc
1. Search SAP DMS Document Info records and either simply view the Original
Application files or actually have a look at SAP Document in the click of a button

There would be a Search folder specifically..

You just have to click on search icon and it will give you a Full search selection poup (tied to SAP
backend) asking you which Document type you want to Search say WJP (Work Job procedure), TSP
(Technical specification etc.). You can enter other selection details as well (if known)

On executing the Search, it will list out all the Documents in the Backend SAP system, in a Folder
layout. It will also give you all other details like Document status, SAP Doc No, Version etc.
You can have your documents arranged in the Layout say as per SAP Document Info record No. Say in
SAP, there is a Document Info record with 3 Original application files tagged into it. It will show 3 entries
in above Layout giving details of all 3 Originals as also giving SAP Document Info record No, Part,
Version No., Document type User etc.

So you can imagine that above folder layout is just like an SAP ALV Report with much more features
embedded in it.

You can select any document and choose to do the following by right clicking on the same. This
document only highlights a few of the features that you can do of the Screenshot list below.
Say if I click on Display with SAP GUI, it will open SAPs Full version of the document

Alternatively, if you simply double click on the Document as displayed in Folder layout, it
will open up just the Original Application File
- Create Folders - Public & Private, Create Document Info records, Create New
versions of Existing Documents

You can create specific Folders in EDMS for storing specific type of documents, say
TST stored in one folder, WJP in another and so on.

Under a shared Document Folder you can create the Documents accessible to all
(those having authorization to the same) mostly as in our case

Note how easy it is to create an SAP Document, Link it to SAP Objects Attach files to
it, Check-in documents without even Logging in to SAP

Click on Create -> Create Document


It would give you a Pop-up (based on SAP Back end configuration), to choose field
values to create your document like Description, Document type (TSP, WJP etc),
Status, User Name, Authorizations, Object Links, Originals etc. You can assign as
many Object Links (Functional Location/Equipments), assign and check in as many
Original Application files you like.
System will prompt you to enter a Storage category where you want to Check in the Originals in our
case DEFAULT is to be selected

Just click OK and your document is created in SAP synchronously in Backend and
also becomes visible to you in the Easy DMS Folder structure
- Create Documents in SAP through Easy DMS using Drag & Drop method

If you drag an Original Application file from any Folder (in your desktop/Network
drives/TRIM in our case) to the SAP EDMS Word area, it will propose to create an
SAP Document Info record for the same. Watch screenshot below:

System will ask for a Work Station application for the file (like GIF etc), will ask where to
Check in this document (DEFAULT as in our case)
System will fill up all details from Document itself, create a check in for the Original File, ask
you for further details if you want to put in like Object Links, more document attachments to
check in etc.
Make changes as relevant and Click OK to save.

- Create New versions of Existing Documents

The process is similar to creating new documents. You just have to select Create New
Version
System will automatically create a new version of the document copying the Old version. You
then would need to Right click on the same -> Change with SAP GUI.

It will take you right into the SAP Document info record to make modifications as required.
