CATS approval through BWSP

Hi,

In EP 7 when a CATS Overtime entry is approved it gets updated immediately to the infotype. On the Workplace setup this is not happening thus the user would run CAT6 to transfer the approved entries.

Is this the standard behavior of EP in terms of CATS approval through BWSP?

Hope to hear replies.

Thanks and best regards.

    You have option for "Direct Transfer to HR in your data entry profile" but this is not possible when an approval is required. For update after approvals you need to schedule the report RPTEXTPT on a periodic basis.

    SAP help states that the <b><i>transfer of time data from Time sheet to HR system is asynchrounous.</i>

    <i>Time data from external systems is stored in the interface tables PTEXDIR and PTEX2000 in

    Report RPTEXTPT (External Transfer Time Management) enables data to be read from the

    PTEX2000 file and then stored as absences or attendances in the Absences (2001) or

    Attendances (2002) infotypes.

    The report RPTEXTPT (External Transfer Time Management) can also be

    scheduled periodically as a batch job.</i></b>

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Actually I know that stuff about the transfer already.

    What I was trying to validate is if in the EP version of BWSP-CAPP, the way of approving overtime would automatically create the entries on the infotype. In some ways this is good since it eliminates the work that HR does in running CAT6.

    Hope someone tells me if they have seen this type of behavior also.

    Thanks and best regards.
