Travel services(Flight, Hotel, Rail, Car) in travel request

Hi Experts,

We have a requirement of giving an option to an employee to request for hotel, flight, car and rail through travel request service on ESS.

However, we can not use 'Create travel plan' service, since client does not want their employees to book a ticket but they can request for the same.

We are currently on EHP4 and we have activated component 'FIN_TRAVEL_1'.

While going through the available service list related to Travel management, I found a service 'Travel services in the request' (Webdynpro name: FITE_VC_SERVICE_REQUEST ) which seems to be suitable for my requirement.

Is there any mean by which I can call this service in 'Create travel request' through configuration? and how?

If not which tables are affected with this data?

Thanks in advance.

    I presume you are trying to use the "other services" in travel planning which doesnt have to be linked to external GDS but can handle requests for booking etc, I'm not that expert in travel planning but I dont see this as customizable in backend transactions so I believe only way might be i the content administration

    From Content Administration, please follow the path: Portal Content > Content provided by SAP > End User Content > Employee Self Service > Iviews > Travel and Expenses.

    Select the iview you wish to change; for example "other services"

    Right click on this iview and select 'preview'.

    In the 'Personalize' window that opens, you can then control and Alt (Ctrl+ALT) the field you wish to change/rename or hide etc.

    Click apply to make the changes, this will change for all ESS users

    (for your information the table TA20C is where services would be defined within "other services" and there is also a BAdI provided - FITP_TRAVEL_PLANNIN and see also note 1282111 in relation to the FM BUILD_ITEMS_FROM_REQUEST)

      Thanks Sally and Learning SAP for your prompt reply.

      I will try solutions provided by you both.

      @learning SAP,

      Does checking 'Additional info', adds flight, hotel, car and rail options in travel request?

      Do I need to perform any further steps?
