Time Question

Hi Gurus,

I have a question in time management .

Positive Time management is recording all Clock in's and clock out's and Negative Time Management is recording only deviations.

<b>My Question</b> is what are the Infotypes maintained in <b>Positive</b> Time Mgt and what are the Infotypes maintained in <b>Negative</b> Time Mgt, what are the main config changes that has to be made to activate either Positive or Negative Time recording for a company using these Schemas and also in SPRO.

Also what is the significance of the Time Schemas TM00 and TM04 in this regard, is there any specification that either TM00 or TM04 is used specifically for Positive or else specifically for Negative recording, which schema is used for which type of recording.

Please gurus help me in this regard.

Thanks for all the help in advance.

Hi Krishna

Schemas are specific Positive TM00, Negative TM04

Infotypes used 2000, 2001 , 2003, 2050, for time infotype are same for the Positive and negative

Hi Krishna,

for positive time management you need to maintain the time pairs/ events and some tables to define your time evaluation, also maintain 1 in the IT0007

Important Tables need to maintain:







Time Schemas:

1. TM00 - Time Evaluation with Personnel Time Events

2. TM01 - Time Evaluation for Work schedule deviation

3. TM02 - Time Evaluation for External services management

4. TM04 - Time Evaluation with-out clock times

Rock It!

Hope you all the best,

Dear Markus,

Can you please explain in which scenario or situations the other two schemas TM01 and TM02 are used

2. TM01 - Time Evaluation for Work schedule deviation

3. TM02 - Time Evaluation for External services management

Hello Krishna,


Schema <b>TM01</b> is a standard schema used to evaluate the time data of employees for whom only deviations from the work schedule are recorded.

Schema TM01 is based on the following requirements and objectives:

Schema TM01 forms time balances, time wage types and time quotas. It is processed using the time evaluation report RPTIME00.

The schema imports and processes time data that has been entered online.

It was developed for evaluation of time data which represent only the exceptions to the work schedule. In this case, the times (actual times) which are not part of working time are recorded.

Time data must be entered as clock times and must be full-day records.

The valuation basis for time evaluation is a planned time pair which is generated according to the specifications in the employee’s personal work schedule. The planned time pairs generally correspond to the actual working time. Only attendances and absences entered in infotypes 2002 and 2001 respectively can cause the planned and actual values to differ.

Schema TM01 automatically generates overtime for all recorded attendance times that are outside of the planned working times specified in the daily work schedule. If overtime is entered in the relevant infotype (2005), overtime hours can be approved taking into account overtime breaks.


The standard schema <b>TM02</b> is a minimized version with the required functions to generate wage types for evaluating time data for external service providers. The schema is specifically modified to include the requirements for evaluating external services.

The characteristics that differentiate schema TM02 from the other standard schemas are highlighted in the following section. As a result, you should already understand the concept behind the Time Evaluation report (RPTIME00) and schema TM00. For more information, see Time Evaluation.

Evaluate External Employees

The CHECK - SRV function ensures that only employees who are assigned to Time Management status 8 (External Services) in the Planned Working Time infotype (0007) are included in accounting process.

Set Up Wage Types

No balances are determined in schema TM02. Instead, the focus is on setting up the wage types that are to be transferred to Materials Management (MM-SRV).

Integrate the functions for balance formation, if you want to form balances. This makes sense if, for example, you want to set up a compensation account for external employees. Use the standard schemas TM00 or TM01 as your guide.

Evaluate on Hourly Basis

If you do not want to record the clock-in and clock-out times for external employees, you only need to record and evaluate the attendance hours for external employees. You can use the new TYPES function to evaluate time data recorded without clock times.

Use the standard schema TM04 as a guide for modifying the schema TM02 if you want to record time data without clock times for account assignments of external services.

Determine Actual Times from Attendances Infotype (2002)

The Time Evaluation (PA-TIM-EVA) normally requires an entry in the time Recording Information infotype (0050). The CHECK-NOTR (No Time Recording) function specifies that information from the Time Recording Information infotype (0050) is not to be used. This function is required if you do not want to record employees’ actual times using external time recording terminals or the Time Events infotype (2011), but with the Attendances infotype (2002).

When you record times for external employee times using time recording terminals, make sure that you have not yet recorded data for external services using the Time Events infotype (2011).

Determine Overtime

As in schema TM00, a number of variants exist for determining overtime.

Check the characteristics in processing class 17 by overtime wage types you are using.

Export Data in Table HRMMSRVIF

The MMSRV function allows you to evaluate the time wage types determined and their corresponding account assignment data using the MM-SRV table ASMD (Service Master - Basic Data). This will eventually determine a new service number. First, however, the interface table HRMMSRVIF must be updated.

To ensure retroactive accounting capacity:

During each payroll run, the time wage types from the last payroll run are compared with the new time wage types determined. The differences are evaluated using table ASMD and then put into the interface table HRMMSRVIF.

Hi krishna,

For both the negative and positive time management, we need to mainatain infotypes 2001, 2006, 2002, 2007.

The configuration that you need to set is, in the infotype 0007, i.e, planned working time, tou need to maintain time management status as '1' for positive time management and '9' for negative time management.

The "Time Management status" indicator in the Planned Working Time

infotype (0007) shows whether all actual times are recorded for an

employee, or only exceptions to the planned specifications.

Regarding the schemas :

TM00 : Schema TM00 is based on positive recording of time data, that is,

recording all times that count as working time (actual times).

Schema TM00 only evaluates time data with clock times (or full-day

records). The main task of schema TM00 is to classify the actual times

by comparing them to the planned specifications in the daily work

schedule (start and end of planned working time, core times, breaks, and

so on).

TM04 : You can use schema TM04 to process attendances and absences that specify a number of hours only, rather than concrete start and end times.

The times stipulated in the daily work schedule are not relevant. Only

specifications such as planned hours and minimum daily working time are

evaluated from the daily work schedule.

TM04 caters both for negative time recording (recording of exceptions to

the work schedule) and positive time recording (recording all

attendances or actual times).
