How to Show Technical Names (Transactions) in the SAP Tree

There are users which use SAP tree to find the program/transaction they would like to run. There are also another type of users which mainly use transaction codes directly in the SAP command field. I am not going to debate in this quick guide whether you should use one or another path. I will also not argue on the pros and cons of both approaches.

Initially, your sap tree and related transactions will look like following:

SAP Tree without Technical Names


When you don’t have technical names, you could find the technical name by looking at the status menu at the bottom right corner when you run particular program/transaction.

SAP Transaction Codes in the status


If you want to show the transaction codes on the tree, follow the screenshots below. First go to the top menu: Extras->Settings

SAP Extras Settings menu


Check the flag for “Display technical names”

When you set this then the SAP tree will include the transactions and it will look like following screenshot:
