Hire and complete hire action start date issue?

Hi experts,

Hope you all are having a great 2014!

My client has 2 actions one is hire and other one is complete hire. Hire is like a quick hire which only has IT 0,1, and 2 but complete hire has all major infotypes including 6,7,8 207-210 etc. Now since these are 2 different actions SAP changes the start dates for the infotypes which come up which running the action. e.g. if for hrie action start date was 1/1/2014 for complete hire action infotypes it makes it 1/2/2014. And I am thinking this is not right because the date of hire action and the infotypes action start date should be same. I am changing these dates manually every time. Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks,

Julia..

    HI Juliana,

    adding to Shrikanth's answer, which is correct:

    YOu can never store 2 actions on the same day in infotype 0000. Maybe that's why, whoever did this config, added the ine day- not really knowing, what he was doing.

    As the first action is already setting the status, the second one doesn't have to be in IT0000 - IT0302 is enough, as all you need it to do is to give you a sequence of infotypes. Only if the first hire hasn't been done and complete hire is executed immediately, will it have to go into IT0000.

    it therefore needs to be set up for both and in the actions priority settings the first hire action must have higher ppriority.

    KIndly read up on additional actions and IT0302 in SAP help and the IMG doco, if you are not familier with it. You'll need to understand that anyway in many cases, eg, when running queries on actions.

    Check whether additional actions featurre is activated in your system at all (find this also in the IMG part with all other actions settings) - I believe, if your system has been set up after 1999, this is the standard setting, but someone might have switched it off.

    Thanks Sven ..that worked out pretty good.. this is how made the changes on complete hire action. I unchecked the U0000 and made evertthing else blank .

    For others to know, that the requirement for hire action is to quickly set up an employee in the system so they can get their badges, get their ID and e-mail setup etc.

    As mentioned by Srikanth my date control is set to blank.

    after making the changes mentioned by Sven I can run both action for the same date. and the complete hire action shows up in additional infortypes section as below.

    Juliana,

    Can you brief the requirement of having two types of hiring actions?. I believe that this have something to do with the probation/temporary to permanent etc.

    Why not delete the existing action of HIRE and execute COMPLETE HIRE again on same date as hire? this will not be possible if you have two set of different infotype groups in T588D for both the actions and YES if the Complete Hire action have set of initial ITs as Hire.

    This is a very immature solution but effective, only thing is that user has to re-enter some of the data twice. Let us wait for the peers to comment.

    Hi ,

    Even for complete action Action (IT0000) will trigger if you don't mention in infogroups.

    In this case which date you will maintain.? 01.02.2014 or 01.01.2014.?

    My suggestion is use only one action with relevant infotypes so that date mismatch will not be a problem.

    Regards,

    Narendra

    Hi Juliana,

    As per the statement

    e.g. if for hrie action start date was 1/1/2014 for complete hire action infotypes it makes it 1/2/2014.

    I have understood that you you mention the date 01.01.2014 (DD.MM.YYYY) in PA40 Screen and execute the Complete Hire action, In Infotype-0000 (Actions) the start date is changed to 02.01.2014.

    Which is adding +1 day.

    Correct me If I am wrong.

    If I am correct check below settings for your Complete Hire action in table: T529A as shown below:

    Make Sure that the Date Control Field is Blank. And try the action now.
