RM (Record Management) is more than a documents manager. With it, you can develop hierarchichal record structures, use workflow functions to define authorization circuits, integrate your own business objects through service providers, integrate R/3 transactions, documents, URLs, ... on your hierarchichal structure.

RM it's a very interesting tool and not only a document manager, like DMS. You can see RM possibilities if you explore customizing menu (SRMCUSTOMIZING transaction).

Hope this helps,

Dear Ivan,

Thanks for your response again,

We are using Archive link to maintain documents for HR ( at Infotype level) and also we are using Digital personell file a Part of RMS, for internally generating files.

how deeper is the integration between RMS and archive link document storage,we could integrate Archive link and Records management system so that any documents stored through ARCHIVE LINK Can be made available in RMS Folders,

but the problem is the Vice versa is not possible, as we would like to have those documents maintained or uploaded through RMS be available in Archive link ie ...a the HR transactions level PA30 Display Archived documents.

Pls suggest the integration available between RMS and Archive link storage.

also i want to know which is the best methodology to store HR documents weather RMS or Archive Link ?

Thanks and regrds
