Hi Gurus,

What is the difference between the appraisal templates found in table T5W8H and those found when accessing tcode OOAM?

I'm more interested in finding out how T5W8H is used.

Full points will be given out.

Hi Olekan Babatonde,

IN SAP there are two different Appraisal systems:

  • Appraisal Systems (templates of which are maintained thru T5W8H)

  • Objective Setting & Appraisals (templates of which are maintained thru OOAM)

OSA is a newer module released with 4.7 Extension 1.10.

You have to choose one of them to use.

Appraisal Systems can be used in PD, TEM & PA whereas OSA is useful as a PD instrument (360 app, surveys, etc.).

I advise you to use OSA thru OOAM.

However, it requires a lot of programming effort thru BAPIS, etc.

Best Regards,
