SAP Screen Personas developer who wants to create a new flavor can start his/her development task on initial SAP Screen Personas screen which is the Personas SMEN (Session Manager Menu Tree Display) transaction code screen. This corresponds to the initial SAP Easy Access screen

Give approval for removal process when you are asked "Are you sure you want to remove this flavor?" This removal approval will only exclude the Personas flavor from your profile.

A second dialog message will enable you to delete the SAP Screen Personas flavor permanently. This will not only remove the layout definition from your profile but delete the Personas flavor permanently from the SAP system.

If you press "No" the flavor will be kept in SAP and will still be available for other users. The layout SAP Personas flavor will only be removed from your profile at the end.

If the Personas flavor creater or editor did not delete the flavor permanently but only removed from his or her own profile, later on it is easy to add the SAP Personas flavor back to own profile. Just press the Flavor Gallery which is at the right-top of the screen and find the flavor among others which is not marked as "already in profile". After the flavor is selected press the "Add to Profile" button to complete the task.
