I am creating templates through PHAP_CATALOG, will they appear in PA30 in IT0025? If yes, whats is the process?
In PHAP_CATALOG you create the appraisal template, weheras in IT0025 what you see is the appraisal document created for the employees. So no you will not see the template created in the catalog.
The process is to first create the template in PHAP_CATALOG then create the document via either PHAP_PREPARE or PHAP_CREATE, once it is created and in the correct status the employee should be able to see the document in IT0025 (or for the administrator via PHAP_ADMIN).
Hope this help
