Employee Multiple Organization Assignment-Employee Detail view Enhancement

 

  • In 1611 we delivered the capability to assign an employee to multiple org. units ( as employees role)
  • In 1702 we have enhanced the employees details view to list all org assignment for an employee.
  • We have introduced a new facet called ‘Organizational Assignments’ in the employees TI which list all the Employee and Manager assignment for an employee.
  • For multiple employee assignment we also highlight the primary assignment.

New data source for employee sales data and org assignment

 

  • In 1611 we delivered the capability to assign an employee to multiple org. units ( as employees role)
  • In 1702 We have enhanced the data Source BP_EMPLOYEE_DETAILS to include sales area and org assignments along with Employee Assignment Role.

Employee Assignment Role signifies the role which the employee is assigned to ( Manager / Primary Org assignment / Secondary Org Assignment ) in one or more org units

 

Customer MDAV dynamic navigation

  • The standard account MDAV is used for both accounts and individual customers . Prior to 1702 the dynamic navigation from the reports to the details view for individual customer was not correct
  • In 1702 we have enhanced the dynamic navigation from customer MDAV to the correct details view for an account/individual customer .
  • The system will dynamically determine if selected entity is a corporate account/individual customer and navigate the corresponding TI

Business User and License Management

Use Case :- As a system administrator , I would like to know how many business users in the system are counted/active users .

Additionally I would also like to map the business users to a valid user subscription type so that I can track which users are intended to consume which user subscription license.

 

Solution :-

  • We have now introduced a new action called ‘User Subscriptions’ in the business user details view .
  • In the new ‘User Subscriptions’ view a system administration can assign user type and user subscription to a business user .

User Type determines the values of user subscriptions which can be assigned to a business user

  • We have also introduced a new attribute called ‘Counted user’ on the business user overview facet.
  • A counted user is defined as a business user which is

– Valid as on date (considering valid from/ valid to date)

– User Locked indicator

In summary a business user which is valid (considering validity dates) and is unlocked ( overall lock indicator and not password locked) is considered as a counted user.

  • Counted user is a derived attribute and cannot be edited on the UI.

Note : the counted user determination is done :-

-When a business user is edited

-Daily as a background job ( we also show the date/time alongside this attribute to clearly indicate when was the auto determination done )

  • We have enhanced the business user find form with these three new attribute
  • A system administrator can search for all counted users who are assigned to a user type and user subscription type.

 

Field visibility in Editable and read only modes for accounts/contacts

  • We have a few attributes on the account / contact / individual customer / partner / partner contact / employees details view which are only visible in edit mode.
  • These attributes are not visible as separate attributes on details views in read only mode.
  • With 1702 , Key user tool has been enhanced to also provide an option to change the visibility property of these select few attributes .
  • Key user can change the property from editable mode to ‘visible in Read and Edit Mode’ . Once the property is changed these edit only fields will also be available in the read only mode.

 

Extension fields in form templates for Individual Customer

 

  • Prior to 1702 release it was not possible to add extension fields to individual customer header to form template/summary .
  • With 1702 it is now possible to add individual customer header extension fields to form templates.

A Key user can now select the form template for individual customer summary during extension field creation and use it in form template

 

Business Partner Number range Edit Enabled: Business Configuration

  • In 1702 we have enabled another internal number range for edit.
  • The marked number range was opened in BC for edit (begin/end number) to help integration customers keep their numbers in sync between their legacy system and C4C

Other Enhancements

  • Contact Person Workplace address Snapshot in offline mode:- Contact person workplace address snapshot is now considered in offline mode as well . If a new Contact is created in offline with Contact Person Workplace Address data, the workplace address snapshot is also derived in consuming application as well
  • Delete ‘Not Started’ Merge instances :- A master data administrator can delete merge instances which are in ‘Not Started’ status .
  • Account Merge –Registered Product Re-parenting : With 1702 release registered product reassignment during account merge has been implemented.
  • Natural Person indicator on account header : We have added a new attribute in the accounts header for natural person identification , this indicator is used in tax number validations. This indicator is also replicated from ERP

    Is there a way to do a mass update on existing users and their User Type/User Subscription?  With almost 1000 current users, this would be a lengthy task to manually update each one.

    Thanks,

    Don

    Hello,

    I have a couple questions.

    Does the Employee Multiple Organization Assignment work for Individual Customer with Employee role only? I tried to assign an Employee to more than one Organizational Unit and the system rase a blocking error message. Did I miss something or is this the expected behaviour?

    If this is the expected behaviour, when Employee Multiple Organization Assignment will be available for the employees too?

    Thanks in adance.

    Daniela
