    Hi Rajendra,

    Thanks for the informative reply! So, in other words, can I say that SPRO is generally used for configuring the ESS overview page and the overview pages of its services (e.g. Employee Search overview pg, Benefits & Payment overview pg) only? And SPRO is unable to support customization of iViews, which will have to be done in Web DynPro?

    • Hi zhenmin wang ,

      you are right.

      Using SPRO the SAP HR Consultant configures the services

      to be displayed on ESS .

      If you require Furter Customization inside the Views which requires Coding

      then it is done through WebDynpro.For this you have to Set up NWDI

      to get the Source Code into the Developer Studio.

      Regards,

      Rajendra

    Hi There !

    Use SPRO

    to add, remove Services for the ESS.

    to Change the Description of Texts Displayed.

    to Have different Images Displayed.

    to add Quick Links.

    **********************************************************************

    Use WebDynpro

    to Change the Positions of Fields on ESS Screen.

    to add Custom Logic to Applications.

    ************************************************************************

    use PCD

    to Change the ESS Menu Structure

    to Organise the Menu as per your needs.

    to Create different Roles

    Cheers !

    Regards,

    Rajendra
