Hi ,

What is the difference between IT0019 ( Monitoring task ) and IT0041 ( Date notification)

I don't understand your question, besides stating the obvious (the difference is, they are different!, also check tables pa0019 and pa0041), what do you expect people to say about these infotypes.

Maybe also change the question in such a way that the answers are really helping you.

Kind regards, Rob Dielemans

To elaborate a little on the obvious:

Info type 41 is used for dates that you specify only once (or at least not on a regular basis), e.g. date of employment.

As far as I understand info type 19 is used for dates where some sort of event or notification is relevant. Examples can be the end of your maternal or paternal leave of absence, the end of your "test period" as an employee (three or six months here in Norway) after which you become a regular employee, the date for renewal of health certificates or other certificates you may need to do your job, etc etc.

In IT0041 all those dates are stored which are related to some actions / Org Assignment.

<b>IT0041 is Date Specifications and not Date notifications.</b>

<i>Date Specifications (infotype 0041) </i>

You can record the following information in the Date Specifications infotype (0041): The Date type specifies the type of information.

A concrete Date type (specified by the user) is used in a series of reports, for example to evaluate an entry date that cannot be derived from the organizational assignment history but which is stored in the infotype Date Specifications (0041).

This infotype can be used in payroll as well as for the leave program.

<b>Date Specification</b>

The standard system contains 12 combinations of Date type and Date. If you require more than 12 date specifications for an employee at the same time, you can use time constraint 3.

<b>IT0019 : Monitoring of task,</b>

<b>Monitoring of Tasks (Infotype 0019) </b>

You can create automatic monitoring of tasks for all HR activities that have follow-up activities in the Monitoring of Tasks infotype (0019). Depending on the selected task type, the SAP system proposes a date on which you will be reminded of the stored tasks. This enables you to implement the follow-up activities on schedule.


The standard system contains the following task types:

  • Subtype 01: Expiry of probation

  • Subtype 02: Temporary contract

  • Subtype 03: Pay scale jump

  • Subtype 04: Work permit

  • Subtype 05: Severe challenge

  • Subtype 06: Training period

  • Subtype 07: Dismissal protection

  • Subtype 08: Expiry of inactive contract

  • Subtype 09: Expiry of temporary contract

  • Subtype 10: Personal interview

  • Subtype 11: Vaccination date

  • Subtype 20: End of maternity protection

  • Subtype 21: End of maternity leave

  • Subtype 30: Follow-up medical

  • Subtype 35: Submit PI number

  • Subtype 36: Submit AHV-ID

  • Subtype 40: Prior attachment

  • Subtype 70: Next appraisal

  • Subtype 71: Work permit expires


The information stored for the Reminder is entered using the Reminder date and the Lead/follow-up time.

You have three possibilities for confirming the reminder date:

  • You can enter the reminder date directly.

If the operation indicator for the relevant task type has the value Blank or - ( Minus), then the reminder date cannot fall after the actual task.

If the operation indicator has the value + ( Plus), then the reminder date cannot fall before the task.

  • The system suggests a default date independently of the task type. This date can be overwritten at any time.

  • You enter a lead time in the form of a number, unit and the operation indicator. The system calculates the reminder date from this.

If you simultaneously enter the reminder date, the number, and unit for the lead or follow-up time, then the reminder date entered will be ignored.
