Dynamic actions can run in the background i.e. the user does not see the run on the screen.A change in one field of an infotype might require, that certain other infotype be updated at the same time. The details can be specified as a dynamic event. It is automatically triggered by the system.
*Examples: *
The Personal Data infotype is newly created, and the Number of children field is filled. Once the record is saved, the system automatically displays the Family/Related Person (0021) infotype and the Child subtype (2) for processing. An employee is hired, and the probationary period is entered in infotype Contract Elements.

Desktop (in SAP) about Manager’s Desktop? I’ve tried to customize Manager’s Desktop in IMG but it can’t worked.Are your reports based on the HR logical data base (LDB). If so then the customization is straightforward to pass the relevant data to the selection screens. Else you will need to pass this through a function for which you may need an ABAPer. You also need to look at the authorization issues for the reports in case it is not using a LDB

21.Is infotype 185 country specific, can it be maintained for India, and will it affect the payroll if it is maintained?

We maintain subtypes in table v_t591a. Goto tcode sm30 -> v_t591a ->

24.What would be basically my roles where I need to provide support or what kind of specs do I need to face.  Pls give some examples.

You are working in Payroll and Benefits, your role can exactly defined after seeing what your Business is doing, are you processing payroll through SAP or you are processing through third party and down load through SAP. In payroll mostly you will get the issue of authorization, and check which all infotypes are going to effect while running the payroll. any issue occur, you need to check the infotypes and while downloading check the fields and verify the data , check the programme and wage types also , whether they are maintained properly etc.

25.Can anybody give some examples of tickets in OM, PA.? What are the tickets you will get in support project please provide me with solution?

If any issue, user raises the ticket. Suppose in OM, org tree is not visible and in PA updation of master records, wage type permissibility or any issue.  Relating to the same. If you have any payroll down load happening, that gets affected due to this infotype. We need to look into as an urgent matter.

26.I am trying to assign an employee on the system to ESS user profile and the message I get is personnel number 00000001 does not exist. [When this employee has full record on the system and is an active employee] What am I doing wrong?

IT 0185 can be used for India payroll. This is for pan no, gratuity.

27.I am facing problem in Infotype 0019/ Monitoring of task. Pls help me in doing IT 0019 working, the system is not giving the reminder on set date, is it require some other settings also. Pls let me know what all settings need to be done for this infotype?

In table V_T531 mention the Lead Follow-up Time and the Units. Like say you want to set the Reminder for 3 months or whatever from the Task Date. This setting will default the Reminder Date.

28.How workflow is related to SAP HR?

Workflow is used to bring out more efficencies and transparencies in processes within SAP.For example, a leave application by an employee using ESS needs to be sent to the employees direct supervisor/Manager for approval. Workflow can be used for this. If the manager does not approve leave within the specified time, certain events like escalation, notification etc can be initiated.
You can map many processes of SAP that involves the participation of many dialogue users to be implemented using workflow.There are many SAP Standard workflows that you can use or can be customised for specific use.
In SAP HR, you can have workflows for CATS Approval, Higer duties approval, contract extension, position change approval, etc. You can program the worflows to update the infotypes, etc.

29.We have this problem at work, on the org. side  the new jobs are there but when we check in infotype 1 it does not pull through. We’ve tried doing the updates using the LSMW and also a programme but nothing helped. We’ve tried to run RHINTE30 but still it does not update infotype 1 record. The PLOGI ORGA switch is on. Where can we check or what can we do to fix this problem

Hope that is to facilitate the workflow process.That is if you need the flow either up ward only or downward only. Also it may be useful in ESS, MDT/MSSfor leave and attendance, appraisals, HR info of the employee and updation, etc.,see the switches if it is related to jobs on the switches not only orga textc,texto,texts switch on and try it it will come it wont work out onlywith orga

30.Where can we see the integrations is switch on, is there a table?

Use T77s0 for PLOGI ORGA.

I known that by running the report RPTQTA00 we can give but what are the customizations we have to do in IMG

33.Creation of wage type

See you can create wage type in> PM—-PA—-Payroll dat—-basic> pay—-wagetypes—create Wt catalogue./ Wage> type group> For running a payroll you need to create a payroll areas and that you need to fine with client about his requirement.

34.I want the T-code of that window where it asks for evaluation path. I want to generate the report in OM.

Transaction S_AHR_61016529 or program RHNAVIG0.

35.How to find the UGR of an country?

An UGR would be only to users, as thename indicates is a User Group and is not related to a country.If you want to find the user group of a person, then you can go to:
System->User Profile->Own Data-> Parameters.Here you can find the UGR settings for the user.

36.Do you want to know the country grouping (molga)

Then see “Mol” in *System->User Profile->Own Data-> Parameters screen If you are looking for Usergroup then See UGR
An UGR would be only to users, as the name indicates is a User Group and is not related to a country.If you want to find the user group of a person, then you can go toSystem->User Profile->Own Data-> Parameters.Here you can find the UGR settings for the user.

37.I have to create a root organisation unit in Development system. Now I want to transport the changes to Test and production system.  The Transport settings in The IMG is ‘X’ that no transport request should be generated.   So, is it advisable to change the settings to blank and then develop the transport request and arrange the settings back to normal once the transport request is generated for PPOCE.

If you only need to create one root object, it’s simpler to do it manuallly in all three systems. Don’t forget to check the range number in all the systems, though.

38.I need to execute one scenario. “Coordinators will try to book one employee for one business event, but on that day he will be on leave”, what should be the process incase I need to see that the person is not booked.

For checking whether the person is booked or not, go to transaction psv1

39.Can somebody explain me with examples about the following terms?
– Staffing Status
– Staffing Percent
– Percentage Approved
– Percentage Reserved

This is reg your 4 terminologies staffing status is related to “position” in OM as vacancy, or no vacancy or obselete  etcstaffing percentage  is related to a particular personnel no . Its stored in Relationship table HRP1001. You can understand that some % of working time is spent in specified position.the other 3 terminologies “percentage approved and “percentage reserved” to be explored.

40.First of all we wanna tell you what we are doing step by step. After logon process, we entered the transaction code PM01 to access “Create InfoType” screen. Then we selected the tab “SingleScrn” to generate new objects into existing infotype. To do this, we entered “0005” as infotype no and “YU” as infotype version for Serbia. And then we just clicked on the button “Generate Objects” which exists right hand side of the screen.We got the error message “HCMT_BSP_PA_YU_R0005 does not exist”.

IT0005 is a standard IT and already exists, you cannot CREATE it. If you want to create a customer infotype, it has to start with 9*.

41.We want to make a copy of an organizational structure from one plan variant to another. This copy should include all assignments like purchasing groups to organizational units made in PFOM . Can we do this?

Make sure that the plan number is established through the IMG. (And that it is not the active plan.)
Go Human Resources -> Organizational Management Tools -> Plan version -> Copy.
It runs RHCOPL00. All or any portion of the plan maybe copied and manipulated and then copied back in to the active plan.

42.We have a requirement to calculate leave entitlement at the anniversary year not calendar year. The leaves have both paid and unpaid components. The paid component is based on time worked. The unpaid component is based on years of service. Leave taken is reduced from both entitlements depending on employee’s request. We are using a Schema based on TM04 which calls Cycles TS15, TS10. What is th ebest way to handle this?

You can use field ‘DAUER’ for seniority based vacation entitlement in the VAC01->VAC99 features. Time worked is not part of the feature structure (PME03). However you may create your own source code to make a decision on any field even if it does not belong to the feature structure. Check feature VAC01.

43. We have multiple ORGs as we have many subsidiaries of our Parent company. These subsidiaries are defined as ORG and are assigned an ORG-ID. Within each ORG, we have Divisions (e.g. Human Resources, Finance, Materials etc.) and within each division we have Departments (e.g. Payroll, Labor Relations, etc.). We plan to use Personnel Development( PD). What is that we have to consider in this case?

You have to consider how the company wants to see its reports while designing the HR organizational structure in PD. You have address the question: for headcount or regulatory reports to which level does the company need to report, to the division, department, group or team level. You have to design the SAP organizational structure to support the lowest level required. Lower the more levels of detail, the more maintenance required.

44.How can we configure the options for the Assgn Form. No. field on Infotype 210. It is the alternate formula to assign tax field and we have been unable to locate the table in the IMG to edit the options.

Options for the BSI Tax Formula can not be configured.
Possible entries are available in BTXFORM, and they depend on the ‘tax authority’ ( BTXAUTH) and the ‘tax type’ (BTXTAXT). Use data dictionary to check existing entries. This data comes from BSI. Tax calculations are done in the
BSI programs (via RFC from the USTAX function in the payroll schema).

45.We are using the US HR/PAYROLL module. We are able to create the entry to credit the accrued payroll account. But our check writing process does not produce any accounting entries when we create a pay check or run our EFT process(RFFOUS_T).

RFFOCUS_C does not produce any accounting entries. During the FI/CO interface run , 559 wage types may be posted to your cash account

46.We have approximately 10000 zip codes. We want to relate the eligibility group to the zip code. We do not want to create 20000 eligibility groups. Which is the best way to configure basing eligibility for HMO’s on zip codes?

Try to group the zip codes by the HMO’s they belong to. Then create benefit groups and programs for the unique combinations. You can create as many benefit groups as required and use the employee zipcode to select the benefit group the employee is eligible for. You may also look at user exit 2.
