Q: What is Calendar from B1 Usability Package?
A: The Calendars give you the option to see your SAP Data in Calendar form (similar to your calendar in Outlook, but instead of meetings, it shows your SAP Data like Activities, Service Calls, when Sales orders are due, and when the employees have a birthday, just to name a few examples). You can see an introduction to the feature here:
