TimeSheet(CATS) and Time Event

HI Experts,

I am very new to CATS and have some dougts.

I want to develop a sample composite application on top of Timesheet(CATS) using SAP Enterprise services.

In ES Workplace for Time & Labour Manageent , there are two types of enterprise services available for Employe working times recording.

Types:

1. Services two create, Read and Update timesheet entries which are based on Duration(StartTime, EndTime).

2. Services to create Time Events(like Clock-in/Clock-out ) which are based on point in time.

My queries:

1. Is there any relationship between CATS and Time Events or they are independent?

2. Where Time Events will be stored- is in CATS DB?

3. Are they two diffrent approaches for employee time capturing?. Can we have both or we should have only one ot them?

Can you provide some good links which provide information abt CATS and Time Events.

Thanks in Advance,

Sampath G

    Hi,

    Here are my comments:

    1. Is there any relationship between CATS and Time Events or they are independent?

    *Time Events we will enter into CATS.*

    2. Where Time Events will be stored- is in CATS DB?

    *Yes, Time Events will be Stored in CATSDB table.*

    3. Are they two diffrent approaches for employee time capturing?. Can we have both or we should have only one ot them?

    We can enter time through CATS or directly useing IT2001/IT2002/IT2003 etc. out of these 2 methods we can use only one..

    Or you can build interface directly to Infotypes,in that case we use both methods. i mean on the based on Employee group...

    I think this will help..

    Thanks

      Hi Rao,

      Thank you for your immediate reply.

      Actually, there are two services in ES workplace

      1. Change Employee Time Sheet: It will create/update employee time sheet entry. It will take start time, end time, work agreement Id and other information.I have gone throgh the CATS pdf, there also in CATS we can do this operation.This serrvice is used to record duration based employee working times.

      2. Create Employee Time Event: this service will create time event for the employee. It will take event type like clock in, clock-out, break-start etc, Date/Time, workagrrementID etc. It is not duration-based time recording but time-based time recording. Also in CATS PDF no where it is given about Time events. only they are talking about duration-based employee times recording.

      what is the difference between these two types of employee time recordings.

      Can you give some good links about Employee Time sheet and Time Events.

      Thanks
