Organizational Data - International

Fri, 16 Jan 2009 10:08:00 +0000

This group includes the following infotypes:

Cost Distribution (Infotype 0027)

Organizational Assignment (Infotype 0001)

Reference Personnel Number (Infotype 0031)

Reference Personnel Number Priority (Infotype 0121)

Sales Data (Infotype 0900)




Cost Distribution - Infotype 0027

Fri, 16 Jan 2009 10:08:00 +0000

In the infotype Cost Distribution (0027), you can determine how costs for an employee are to be distributed to different cost centers. At any one time, you can distribute appropriate percentage costs to up to 25 different cost centers. For more information, see the following section in the PY-Payroll Accounting documentation:

Cross-Company Code Transactions

Posting Information From Master and Time Data

Subtypes are used to differentiate between costs that should be distributed. The standard system contains the following costs as subtypes:

  • Subtype 01: Wage/salary
  • Subtype 02: Travel expenses

Cost Distribution

By entering a value in the field Distr., you determine the costs to which the cost distribution is referring.

You determine the cost distribution by entering the following values in the lines that are numbered consecutively by the system.

  • CoCd (Company code)
  • BA (Business area)
  • Cost ctr (Cost center)
  • Prcnt. (Cost center percentage rate)

You can use the function keys to scroll down a total of three pages, insert lines, attach, or delete. The cost center that has been entered in the distributor on the single screen under number 01, is displayed on the list screen.

If you create a Cost Distribution (0027) infotype record, you must first ensure that company codes, controlling areas, and cost centers have already been set up.




Organizational Assignment - Infotype 0001

Fri, 16 Jan 2009 10:07:00 +0000

The Organizational Assignment (0001) infotype deals with the incorporation of the employee into the organizational structure and the personnel structure.

This data is very important for the authorization and control of Payroll.

Enterprise Structure

The CoCode (company code), Pers.area (personnel area), and Cost center fields cannot be maintained in this infotype. They already contain default values. You can edit these values only by carrying out a personnel action.

The value for the Leg.person (Legal person) field is determined automatically and cannot be overwritten.

Personnel Structure

The system derives the values for the EE group (Employee group) and EE subgroup (Employee subgroup) fields from the Actions (0000) infotype. These values cannot be overwritten. You can assign these values only by carrying out a personnel action.

You can overwrite the default values in the field Payr.area field.

The Organizational Assignment (0001) infotype has the time constraint 1, which means that an infotype data record must exist in the system at all times as of the date on which the employee is hired.

Reference Personnel Number - Infotype 0031

Fri, 16 Jan 2009 10:06:00 +0000

The infotype Reference Personnel Number (0031) is used to assign several personnel numbers to one employee, if the employee has different employment relationships in your company. In this case, the personnel number associated with the employee is known as a reference personnel number. This infotype establishes links between all of an employee’s reference personnel numbers.

The infotype Reference Personnel Number (0031) is used in Personnel Administration for copying information that is common to all personnel number records for an employee who has several work contracts; it is also used by Payroll.

If an employee has more than one employment relationship within your company and these employment statuses are all accounted together, you must specify the order of priority for payroll in the infotype Reference Personnel Number Priority (0121).

Reference Personnel Number

In the infotype Reference Personnel Number (0031), a list of the interrelated reference personnel numbers are stored for each reference personnel number involved.

You can enter a reference personnel number in the Actions infotype (0000) when a new employee is hired. The system will automatically update the infotype Reference Personnel Number (0031) and copy certain reference personnel number infotypes.

Certain infotypes are the same for all the personnel numbers belonging to one employee: These are:

  • Personal Data (0002)
  • Addresses (0006)
  • Bank Details (0009)

If you edit these infotypes for a personnel number the relevant infotype records for all related personnel numbers are also pulled up.

Other infotypes that define the employee’s individual working relationship can undergo different changes for the various different personnel numbers.

  • Organizational Assignment (0001)
  • Basic Pay (0008)
  • Country-specific infotypes for tax and social insurance

When you edit the infotypes for a personnel number the system does not call up the relevant infotype records for all related personnel numbers .

As a rule, you only need to maintain the infotype Reference Personnel Number (0031) if you want to retrospectively create a relationship between two personnel numbers that already exist, or if you want delete a link between two personnel numbers.

If you include a personnel number, all the infotypes belonging to that personnel number that can be copied will be taken on by the current personnel number.




Reference Personnel Number Priority - Infotype 0121

Fri, 16 Jan 2009 10:06:00 +0000

If an employee has more than one employment relationship within the enterprise, this employee will have a personnel number for each of these employment relationships. In this case, the personnel number associated with the employee is known as a reference personnel number. The Reference Personnel Number (0031) infotype establishes links between all of an employee’s reference personnel numbers.By using the infotype Reference Personnel Number Priority (0121) you can determine the sequence in which an employee’s reference personnel numbers are sent to payroll accounting. The reference personnel number with the highest priority will be sent to payroll accounting first.You can also choose a main personnel number from the many reference personnel numbers that have been entered in the infotype Reference Personnel Number Priority (0121). This can be useful, if:1. Only certain payroll steps are to be carried out for a Reference personnel number during payroll, or2. You only want one of the Reference personnel numbers to be considered by the report programs. If a payroll is run for an employee who has more than one personnel number in an enterprise, it is called a multiple payroll. A multiple payroll cannot be started by the payroll driver. If an employee who has a multiple payroll enters a payroll accounting area, then the payroll run for that entire payroll accounting area has to be started using the report Scheduler (RPCALC*M). The maintenance of infotype Reference Personnel Number (0031) is a prerequisite for the maintenance of infotype Reference Personnel Number Priority (0121). Restrictions The Reference Personnel Number Priority (0121) infotype has the following restrictions:all the personnel numbers that have been entered in infotype 0121 must be the employee’s Reference personnel numbers.if a main personnel number has been chosen, this personnel number must also be one of the Reference personnel numbers that has been entered in the current infotype record. all Reference personnel numbers must be in the same payroll accounting area. you can only enter a begin date for a record. This date is the first date of a payroll period. an infotype record for the infotypes Actions (0000) and Organizational Assignment (0001) must exist for at least one day during the validity period for a reference personnel number to be listed in the current priority. all the reference personnel numbers that are in the current priority must belong to the same legal person. The relative sequence of the reference personnel numbers in the priority cannot not be changed. An employee has the reference personnel numbers P1, P2, P3, P4 and P5. The following records for the infotype Reference Personnel Number Priority (0121) have been created one after the other for the employee. (The priority of the reference personnel numbers in their entry sequence): Record A: Record B: Record C: The following new records cannot be created: Record 1: This record directly contradicts the priority assigned in record A (in record A, P1 is before P3). Record 2: This record contradicts the combination in records A and B. Record 3: This record contradicts the combination in records B and C. All the above restrictions are checked when you maintain the infotype. Current Priority The left column contains the priority entered in the current record. Each line is identified with a number that is created by the priority. The numbers reflect the payroll sequence. Previous Priority The middle column contains the priority entered in the previous record. This column is only displayed if a previous record exists. By previous record, we mean an infotype record that contains the date that is one day before the begin date of the current infotype record. Each line is identified with a number which is created by the priority. This column is used to ensure that the user bears restriction 7 in mind. Reference Personnel Number (Infotype 0031) T[...]



Sales Data - Infotype 0900

Fri, 16 Jan 2009 10:05:00 +0000

Within the master data stored for the Sales and Distribution (SD) application component, the sales employee is created as a special business partner. The sales employee processes business transactions within the enterprise.

In infotype Sales Data (0900), you can administer the sales employee as an employee in the HR component. In this way, the employee data can be administered using the personnel number.

Sales data

Assign the employee to a Sales organization, a Sales office, and a Sales group.

  • If you have both the SD and HR SAP components in your enterprise, only the responsible personnel administrator can create a data record in the Sales Data infotype (0900).
  • If you do not implement the HR component in your enterprise, the infotype record is created for the employee in the SD component.

SAP Initial Entry of Applicant Data HR Recruitment Grouping of Applicant Data

Mon, 12 Jan 2009 07:47:00 +0000

Use

Initial entry of applicant data takes place using fast data entry. This procedure involves two steps, and comprises the applicant actions Initial entry of basic data, and Enter additional data.

You have to perform the Initial entry of basic data action for every applicant. This is because it contains data (such as the name, address and organizational assignment of the applicant) that is required later for printing letters, and for statistical purposes. If optical archiving is used for the application documents, these can be assigned to the applicants as part of the Initial entry of data action.

Enter additional data is only carried out for applicants who are of further interest to the company. This action enables you to assign an applicant to one or more vacancies, as well as entering data on an applicant’s education, training, qualifications, and previous employer.

You call this action either from the entry screen of the Initial entry of basic data action directly, or from the List of applicants by action, which can be created using the report of the same name. However, you can also access the action from numerous other screens.

Features

The two-stage concept of fast data entry has the following advantages:

  • Entry of applications in the system can be divided so that more than one person is responsible for it.


On receipt of the applications, one employee enters the mandatory data for all applicants. The applications are then distributed among the responsible administrators/personnel officers, who decide which applicants can be rejected immediately. They then enter additional data on applicants who are still of interest to the company.

  • Large numbers of applications can be processed quickly.
  • A minimum of time and work is wasted on entering data on applicants who are unsuitable for the company.

Activities

The procedure used to enter basic data is different for internal and external applicants.

If the applicant is an external applicant, all the required data must be entered manually. When dealing with internal applicants, however, you can import data such as name and address simply by specifying the candidate's personnel number. You can overwrite this data, if necessary.




SAP Identifying Multiple Applicants and Former Employees

Mon, 12 Jan 2009 07:46:00 +0000

Use

When initial entry takes place, each applicant is assigned an applicant number used to identify only him or her throughout the system. If other applications are recorded for the same applicant at a later date, these are recorded as new applications under the existing applicant number.

Features

When performing Initial entry of basic data, the following functions are available:

    • When dealing with internal applicants, the system carries out a check for multiple applicants.

If it finds a multiple applicant on the database, the system accesses the applicant action New application. This action adds to the applicant’s existing history, that is, the application is recorded as a new application under the existing applicant number.

    • When dealing with external applicants, the system can identify multiple applicants and former employees.

If the system identifies data records in the employee or applicant database that resemble those of the current applicant, these are listed on screen. The user must then check the list to establish whether they are indeed the same person. If so, the user can then select that candidate.

If the candidate is a multiple applicant, the system accesses the applicant action New application, and simultaneously imports any existing data.

If the applicant is identified as a former employee, the Initial entry of basic data action remains on screen, and the system imports any existing data for this person. You can overwrite this data, if necessary.

    Infotypes

    Fri, 09 Jan 2009 13:48:00 +0000

    Definition Infotypes are units of information in the Human Resource Management System. Use Recording employee data for administrative, time recording and payroll purposes is the most important aim of master data administration in the HR system. In the R/3 System, the information units used to enter master data are called infotypes.Infotypes are used to group related data fields together. Infotypes give structure to information, facilitate data entry, and enable you to store data for specific periods. Structure Infotypes are characterized by the following:Infotype structureData entryTime dependent storage of infotype data Infotype Structure To the user, infotypes appear as data entry screens. They contain whole series of information (e.g. last name, first name, date of birth) that you enter in data fields. Data fields concerning the same or similar subject matter are combined into data groups or information units.In database terms, infotypes represent a data structure or set of related data records. When you update an infotype, old data is not lost but is instead stored in the system for historical evaluation purposes. Data Entry You enter data in accordance with the following principles:Your entries are automatically checked for accuracy and against table entries.Predefined default values help you to enter and maintain data.Checks and default values depend on the relevant employee’s organizational assignment. The organizational assignment determines the relevant information used from time recording, wage type and pay scale structure. Time-Dependent Storage of Infotype Data When you update an infotype, the old data is not lost. Instead, it is retained so that past data can be evaluated. When you update an employee’s personal data, the old data is automatically time-delimited. The system creates a validity period for each infotype record. As a result, each employee infotype has several data records, which differ from each other by their validity periods.You must also define how the various data records of one infotype interact with each other with respect to their validity periods. This time-based reaction is determined by the infotype Time Constraint. You can assign authorizations on an infotype basis.[...]



    Infosubtypes

    Fri, 09 Jan 2009 13:48:00 +0000

    Definition

    Subunits of an infotype.

    Structure

    Subtypes are used to subdivide infotype records. They subdivide infotype data by subject matter, which makes it easier for you to access and manage information or to assign different control features (such as time constraints) to different subtypes. You can also create separate histories for each subtype.

    You create the following address types in infotype Addresses (0006):

    • Permanent residence (subtype 1)
    • Temporary residence (subtype 2)
    • Home address (subtype 3)

    Because different addresses may be current at the same time, you must choose time constraint 3 for infotype Addresses (0006). However, because a record of permanent residence must always exist, time constraint 1 must be used for this subtype. A home address, on the other hand, is not absolutely essential and can only exist once at any one time, so time constraint 2 is appropriate.

    Because the relevant entry screens and check logics are identical irrespective of address type, there is no point creating one infotype per address type.

    Subtypes enable you to take account of the various time characteristics of different infotypes. You specify a time constraint for each subtype, irrespective of the other subtypes.

    Other examples of infotypes with subtypes are: Recurring Payments and Deductions and Additional Payments.

    Integration

    Subtypes do not represent a level below infotypes. Instead, infotypes are divided into subtypes, each of which represents a different category of infotype with its own time characteristics.

    The entry screens of individual subtypes may differ one from the other.

    You can assign authorizations on a subtype basis.




    Object Identification

    Fri, 09 Jan 2009 13:47:00 +0000

    Definition

    Object identification distinguishes between data records that have the same infotype, subtype, lock indicator, and validity begin and end dates.

    Structure

    The object identification (object ID) splits subtypes into individual objects. You can create a separate history for each object. The object ID automatically inherits the time constraint assigned to the subtype.

    Infotype Family/Relative (0021) is divided into the following subtypes:

    • Spouse (Subtype 1)
    • Child (Subtype 2)
    • Legal Guardian (Subtype 3)

    Time constraint 2 is assigned to the individual subtypes so that you can generate an independent history for each subtype.

    However, if you need to enter data on more than one child, you must assign time constraint 3 to the subtype because the data records of the various children will overlap. Introducing an object ID allows you to generate one history per child. The object ID is stored in the infotype as the Child number.

    Infotype Loans (0045) is another example of an infotype with an object ID.




    Infotype Groups

    Fri, 09 Jan 2009 13:47:00 +0000

    Definition

    An infotype group, or info group, is a sequence of related infotypes that are displayed one after the other for maintenance purposes when a personnel action is performed.

    Use

    The infogroup guarantees that during the personnel action, all information needed for the business processes is stored.

    Structure

    An infogroup exists in the standard system for every personnel action type in the Personnel Actions section.

    In Customizing for Personnel Administration, you can modify the relationship between individual infogroups and define the infogroups as user-dependent.

    Integration

    The infogroup is processed when Running a Personnel Action.

    Personnel Administration Infotypes

    Fri, 09 Jan 2009 13:46:00 +0000

    This section provides you with an overview of the infotypes in Personnel Administration.

    They are divided into the following groups:

    Personal Data (International)

    In the infotype Addresses (0006), you store the address data of an employee/applicant. The employee’s address is often used in conjunction with the employee’s/applicant’s name, taken from the infotype Personal Data (0002), for employee lists of different kinds, for forms, or for address labels.

    The standard system contains the following address types:

    • Subtype 1: Permanent residence

    • Subtype 6: Nursing address

    Foreign Addresses

    There are many different entry screens for the individual country versions for the infotype Addresses (0006). When you create an address, the system will choose the country screen that corresponds to the country of the personnel area to which the employee/applicant is assigned in the Organizational Assignment infotype (0001).

    If you want to choose a country screen to enter an address for your employee/applicant other than the country screen suggested by the system, then do this by using the Foreign Address function. You will find this function on the entry screen of infotype Addresses (0006) when you are creating an address.

    Challenge infotype 0004

    Fri, 09 Jan 2009 13:44:00 +0000

    The data contained in the infotype Challenge (0004) is used in order to be able to fulfill the legal obligations with regards to the contributions for severely challenged persons.

    Challenge Data

    If the history for the infotype Challenge (0004) is to agree with the history contained on the ID card for severely challenged persons, then we recommend that you delimit the infotype in accordance with the data on the ID card.

    The date in the field ID end date is used to create the severely challenged directory . The infotype record end date is used to display a list of severely challenged persons who receive payments.

    In order for the system to accept the entry of additional vacation for severely challenged persons’, a challenged level of at least 50% must exist in the Challenge (0004) infotype.


    If a person loses his/her severely challenged status, it is legally possible to include this person in the list for severely challenged persons three months after the ID has expired.

    To do this, delimit the infotype record using a date that is three months after the ID card’s expiration date.

    Issuing Authority

    This set of data contains information on the authorities that issue the challenge certificates.

    Second Issuing Authority

    If a second issuing authority has also issued a challenge certificate for the person concerned, then you can also store details on the second issuing authority in this infotype. Make entries in the same fields for this issuing authority as for the first issuing authority.
