This component contains necessary task, role, and permission management tools for both the author and the end user.

· Navigator: This is the end-user guide based off on the content created. It guides the user step by step through any new, complex, or rarely used processes and allows the user to get up to speed in an efficient and quick manner.

Through the entire process, the SAP support team is on standby to help employees through all the phases and equip them with necessary information they need for better performance.
