    Hello!

    Please use the following link to download a presentation I did at TechEd a while ago. You need to be logged in to SDN to download it though!

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/softwaredownload?download=/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/business_packages/a1-8-4/teched-2006-sdn-day/sdnday_ess_hr.zip

    If you have no idea what an infotype is and BADIs then I suggest you get the help of an HR ABAP resource to get your task done. You can work on the frontend compents and the HR ABAP resource on the backend components - otherwise you will have a lot of fun (NOT!) with ESS applications.

    😊 Harald
