Employee Photo Restrictions

Former Member

Hi Experts

There are some questions i want to ask about restrictions while uploading employee pictures. FYI, these photos will be accessed through Employee Self Service and/or Digital Personnel File too:

1. Are there any restrictions on the file type that i can upload? The standard procedure mentions linking of JPG to HRICOLFOTO. Does this mean that photos in other formats, such as .BMP etc cannot be added? If not, then what is the procedure?

2. Is there any restriction on the file size and dimension? As I wish to link them to ESS and DPF, is there a standard size required and can it be configured?

Thanks in advance

Joy Kaushish

ArchiveLink is configured under the Netweaver/BASIS section of the IMG.

In ECC5/6....

(1) Standard is JPG....however, this can be changed if you disire (GIF, BMP, RAW, etc are also other document classes). However, per config documentation:

"Each document type has exactly one document class. A document class can be assigned to any number of document types."

(2) No limit via configuration.

Thanks for the reply Christopher

1. The employee pictures are in a .TGA format. I wonder if you have heard about it. Anyway, i tried linking the picture to an employee and it shows it in the PA30 transaction. However, I found out that the document class doesn't really matter when uploading the photos as I tried uploading the .TGA picture under document class JPG, GIF, BMP and they all worked. Can you tell me the reason for this inconsistency? Should I expect any other problems while uploading .TGA pics under a different document class?

2. You said that there isnt any limit viz configuration. Can you tell me where this configuration can be done?

Thanks
