PA40 – Actions Configuration

In this tutorial I shall show you how to configure Actions in PA40.

The IMG steps are:

SPRO > IMG > Personnel Management > Personnel Administration > Customizing Procedures > Actions

1. Define infogroups

In this step, you define the info groups that are processed when actions are carried out. This must be carried out before you proceed to the next step where you must define the work list, i.e. the info group, for every personnel action that is to be carried out.

Double Click on User Group Dependency on Menus and Info Groups

Create entries as below:

Create Entries as per Menus entred above:

The following operations are used :

COP Copy                                     
DEL Delete                                   
DIS Display                                  
EDQ Lock/unlock                              
INS Create                                   
LIS9 Delimit                                  
MOD Change                                   
INSS Create for Actions is not converted to Change

As while hiring, new record is created so INS operation is used.

Thus, Infogroups are created.

2. Set up personnel actions

Double click on Personnel Action Types

Here following columns should be noted:

When you create a new action, the system checks whether the features of this action match the features of the previous action. The feature you enter in this field controls performance of this check.

Save the entries and return back.

3. Create reasons for personnel actions

In this way Reason for Action can be customised. If no reason is maintained for an action type, the system creates a blank value. If any type of Reason is maintained, then this field becomes a mandatory field.

Save the entries and return back.

4. Change action menu

Enter in the sequence the Actions to be displayed in PA40

Save the entries

Now the most important step is creating User Group in SU3 as below:

Go to TCode SU3, in the parameters table enter UGR in Parameter column, and maintain the parameter value as shown below:

      Hi Priya,

       

      Actually I am more concerned with posting customisation related issues rather than end user tutorials.
