Time Entry for multiple Personnel Numbers through CAT2


I'm new in CATS. Our client is asking me the following:

1. Can they input time entries for multiple or several Personnel Numbers in one go in CAT2?

2. Is there a standard function or feature that they can use to upload time entries via batch upload from Excel file?

Thank you all in advance for helping.

    The answer to your first question is yes. You can activate entry for multiple personnel numbers using the tcode CAC1. Select your profile & in the Person selection section, select the checkbox 'Enter for several personnel nos.'. You can also select a selection report or click on the appropriate raido button depending on how you want to control employee selection in CAT2.

      Check if the above link is useful. To summarize:

      1) You can create two separate authorization profiles e.g. ZEMP for individual employee without the option of data entry for multiple employees, & ZADM for time administrators with the option of entering data for multiple employees.

      2) Create two separate profile authorization groups(e.g. Admin & employee) in table TCATSA.

      3)  In CAC1,assign the appropriate auth group to each profile in the field Authorization.

      4) Use the P_PERNR object to control that an employee can access his own data only. Do not assign P_ORGIN to the employees that should not enter data of other employees.

      Refer to the above link to understand what values to enter in P_PERNR. Activate P_PERNR as advised in the link.

      5) You can control access to the authorization groups defined in step 2 by entering the dummy infotype 0316 & entering the required authorization profile auth group under subtype.

      6) In addition, you can ask the Basis team to set the CVR parameter in tcode Su3 for all employees as ZEMP and as ZADM for time admin. This will default the selected data entry profile when the user executes tcode CAT2.

    Below is the standard report

    Report RPTEXTPT transfers data from the interface tables PTEX2000, PTEX2010, PTEX2003GEN, and PTEX2003SPEC to the corresponding infotypes: Attendances/Absences (2001/2002), Employee Remuneration Info (2010), and Substitutions (2003).

    You can also use BAPIS

    BAPI_CATIMESHEETMGR_INSERT     CATS: Insert data records
