NEW View Group in Team Calendar

Hi experts,

I have the following requirement. We have a portal role for assistants, who do e.g. time keeping and stuff for a certain area of responsibility. For those users I need to provide the team calendar with a special view group (its not the classic direct team or direct subordinates). Lets say, I have that view group already, so thats not the issue. The Question is, how to assign that view group to a dedicated version of the team calendar iView.

I remember, back in the days, you could specify the view group as a parameter of the team calendar iView, but that does not seem to be the case anymore.

I can see that in V_PTREQ_TEAM you can define the view group per mode. Obviously the ess~lea/TeamView application uses the 'Team VIew Mode'. SInce we are using the Team Calendar in the standard for managers as well, I cannot assign my custom view group to that mode.

So how do I get the Team Calendar to display my custom view group without interfering with the standard?

I was thinking of maybe an application parameter in the iView or something.

In table V_PTREQ_TEAM you assign org. view groups to so called modes of the team calendar. That mode depends on the situation where the team calender is used. E.g. you use ESS_LEA_EE for the leave request mode, MSS_LEA_EE for the leave approval mode and MSS_LTV_EE for the manager's team view mode. Those modes are directly linked to the application (leave request, leave request approval and team viewer). We are using all three of them already so I can't reuse any of them.

Now there is a forth situation where I would like to use the team calender that is for secretaries who are supposed to see a certain team.

Also in V_PTREQ_TEAM I can see there is another mode called 'Administrator Mode'. When is that mode used anyway? Might this be a way to implement my requirement? I guess I need to assign their org. view group to a certain team calendar mode here. I just don't know which one.

Thanks in advance.

    Yes Andre your understanding is correct, You could make use of Administrator Mode for your special type of users with the different rule group.

    Administrator Mode

    You can use this mode to assign HR administrators or time administrators for the Leave Request application the employees they require for their work using view groups or grouping IDs.
