Infotypes in Info Group for Hiring to be made mandatory


Dear All,

For hiring of a new employee we use tcode PA40.

When hiring an employee, the infotypes Actions (0000), Organizational assignment(0001), Internal Data (0032) ,(Personal data (0002),

Address (0006), Planned working time (0007) , Basic Pay (0008),Bank Details (0009) etc., are created one after the other. The sequence for the same is according to the infogroup.

While running actions, we want to make some infotypes mandatory because here the issue is that the end users while running actions is skipping the screens and hence important data is being missed.

Some infotypes which are important from payroll perspective if missed are only known once the payroll is completed hence creating some issues.

For instance the user missed to maintain the data for bank details (0009) while hiring. In the month of hiring the company paid him via check. Now in the next month's payroll the system was paying him for two months since bank details were not maintained for the previous month.

Hence please suggest a mechanism where in we can make the required infotypes mandatory and the system does not let the user move forward till the data is filled with respect to the infotype.
