One of the Key Features which SAP Business One users were always looking at, is really the simplest requirement. Some features, some fields, some buttons which are unnecessary for their business operations should be hidden, that means simply some changes in the UI of SAP Business One forms. This is now possible with SAP Business One 9.1 because it is introducing the UI Change and Hide functions which is really a good enhancement.
