Hi Experts,

In the Expert Mode (PO13),

What is the use of tabs Like (Active, Planned, Submitted ,Approved, Rejected). How & in which condition we use.

we also maintain OM infotypes here.

I would like to know this the only place we maintain the OM infotypes or any possibility in (Infogroups & Infotype menus).

Appreciate your early response.

Rajesh

Hi,

Any object created in the Organisation goes through the planning cycle during wich they will be approved or rejected.

A planned status is assigned to each Infotype record .Following are the different status of planning cycle.

Planned , Submitted , Approved , Active ,Rejected

In your case PO13 is used to maintain positions.Positions are created in the planned status and then sent for approval.Depending on approval they can either become active or rejected.The status can be manually changed via menu option - Edit->status change.

If the client wants to save the approval cycle in SAP you use the various status and change the status manually or via workflows.

For example - first craeted position in planned status,once it is submitted for approval change the status to submit via Edit menu option .

If the client doesnt want to capture status then obejcts are created directly in active status in SAP.

PO13 is for position maintenance

P010 for org unit maintenance.

PP01, PP02 - object maintenance.

Hi,

If you wanna record an approval type of workflow for creation of OM objects you use these statuses.

For some organizations, opening of a position requires a process to follow:

1. Hr personnel creates it in planned mode.

2. Then he/she submits the position master data for approval to the top managers.

3. The top managers either approve the position or reject it (if they think there is no need for the position)

4. If approved, the HR personnel makes it an active position and position becomes available to be filled by a personnel.

In general, if this process is not required, all OM objects are created in active status.

You can make use of this in succession planning in PD module.
