You might have seen the great TM9 map integration videos that Marcus Zahn posted on Linkedin where he showed how you could from the TM transportation cockpit branch out to the map view and perform the planning in that same view.

In order to do so, you need to access one of the options in the “Show Map” menu, that is displayed in the transportation cockpit (as shown below).

By default this options menu is not displayed, so here’s how to activate this functionality.

Go to customising and follow the following path SAP Transportation Management / Basic Functions / Geographical Map / Define Settings for Geographical map. In that customising point, you need to activate the maps integration – voilà – buttons will now display. In case they don’t, check the settings of your transportation cockpit page layout (in the application administration section of TM).
