About SmartFolders


SmartFolders are not true folders: they are macro-programmed queries executed when opening the SmartFolder.

The functionality of SmartFolders resembles that of SmartLists closely. SmartFolders differ from SmartLists by their integration into the folder structure of SAP Engineering Control Center. Macros used by SmartFolders can be stored in both the SAP system and the file system. SmartFolders can be distinguished from regular blue folders by their color - SmartFolders are white.
