Change order of "bizcards" for Personal Profile Overview Page

I have searched SCN and found many discussions/blogs/docs on changing config for ESS applications.  However, I have limited experience with FPM/WD4A and am a bit confused.

We just installed HR Support Packages (SAP-HR 604 80-92 and EA-HR 607 30-43).  Prior to the updates, on the Personal Profile Overview Page, the "bizcards" (for United States) were displayed as follows:

After the HR Support Packages, the order of the bizcards changed to the following:

The process owner wants the order to be what it was before we applied the Support Packages (Personal Data at top, etc).  What controls the order of display of the bizcards?  How do I change the order?  I need some detailed instructions as I do not know where to start.

Thanks in advance for any advise on this issue.

    To do so, you must customize the overview pattern (OVP) configuration HRESS_CC_PER_OVP.•You can change the layout of the application’s business cards. You have the following options:◦At user level The user can personalize the screen. Example: The user can drag and drop business cards to change the Personal Profile page. Only the user that made the change can see the adjustment.◦At administrator level The administrator makes the change in the OVP configuration. All users can see this adjustment. You can use global personalisation to do so or use at the code level.

    In the HRESS_CC_PER_OVP main page/OVERVIEW_SCREEN in the Preview section you will see each separate component of the biz card view and a number in the far lower right corner that is the screen column and sequence and that controls where the item is on the screen. You will need to make a Z copy and then change those sequences to your requirements.

    I put some screen shots for you to get the idea. So you just probably need a Z copy and then just set the order to what you want or hide what you want etc.

    Let me know if this makes sense?

    • Martha,

      We have limited personalization by removing the personalization option thru Administrator customizing (&sap-config-mode=X and setting the changes to final for the object). 

      I ran the WD app you mentioned for myself for component FPM_OVP_COMPONENT with configuration ID HRESS_CC_PER_OVP and do not see any user personalization but there is administrator customizing for this combination.  The administrator customizing was used to hide some of the buttons (add, delete, etc) on some of the individual bizcards and was done prior to the latest install of HR Support Packages.  At that time, the bizcards were in the desired order.

      Since I do not have any user personalization, I would think that the order in the component configuration would be used, but that is not the case for me.

      Do you have any other ideas?  When I use administrator customizing by starting the application HRESS_AC_PERSINFO with the &sap-config-mode=X parameter, I can drag/drop the bizcards that I see into the desired order.  However, I don't see any option to SAVE and assign this customization to a Change Request.
