    Hello Christopher,

    Truly wonderful compilation! πŸ™‚ Although I had already discussed but I have created a document about the integration of P&F to Shared Service Framework…

    And I would also like to know weather is it possible to edit the form if we save as a draft and later we change it. and the number of process and form doesn’t  get generated but only the GUID ( or th UID) gets generated until we send it can we create a number as soon as we save as draft.

    Another question is theme/ currently I am able to see the corbu theme but is it possible to have our own CSS and design?

    Sorry if I have asked a bsoic question but I am more in to SSF side trying to integrate the stuff πŸ™‚

    and again thanks for the helpful links.

      Hi Dhruvin,

      I am looking for waysΒ to integrate P&F into HR-SSF. Do you have some helpful documentation links…

        Hi Rene,

        Ti be honest no for the documentation but i can definitely help you.

        Contact me on my gmail : dhruvinmehta@gmail.com

        and we used some standard and a lot of custom enhancements in order to meet the requirements from my client to integrate it with decision based checklist , imho standard was not sufficient to cover a lot of our requirement.

        nevertheless , u can mail me or start a new post we can discuss the same!

        Regards,

        Dhruvin

      This is off topic. Please open a new “question” and it can be answered for you. I would also say as you mention you are new to HCM P&F, read all you can about it, the help.sap.com docs for your version, the business package application details, etc….THEN come ask questions. What you just asked is VERY basic and is answered in the material I listed.
