ESS Who is Who - Add search criteria

Hi all,

I have tried searching the forums, but can't find an answer for my problem. I want to add an additional field to the search criteria for the who is who iview.

I am able to change the advanced search, but I want to add a search criteria on the first screen. Changing the service for the adress book (Employee Self-Service -> Service-Specific Settings -> Address Book -> Who's Who -> Who's Who (ESS): Selection and Output) does not change this first screen.

Anyone know how I can make this change?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

    You have to use infoset and queries to enable this.

    standard delivered is InfoSet /SAPQUERY/HR_XX_PA_ESS

    You can add your own here

      Thanks for your answer, and sorry for taking this long to respond.

      I had already created a new infoset, since the standard does not meet our requirements. (ZHR_XX_PA_ESS).

      I created a query for this new infoset, but I don't see any changes.

      If by selecting fields you mean in the Who's Who (ESS): Selection and Output, then yes.

      I have there available 3 tabs, none have the default settings.

      First tab I can set the selectionfields, but when changing/adding a field here, my "simple search" does not change. The changes here are reflected under the advanced search, which is nice, but not what I want.

      I simply want to add 1 additional field to the first search screen, so the user does not have to always use the advanced search option.
