Do you have any questions, or want to inquire about something specifically? We look forward to hear from you:
The CATS timesheet (Cross-Application Time Sheet) is a cross-application tool for recording working times, tasks and amounts and linking them with account assignment elements such as assignments, projects or cost centers. Following approval by the relevant manager, the entries made are available to all integrated components, such as Controlling, Logistics, etc. as well as Time Management or Payroll Accounting.
Since it is an interface tool, using the timesheet necessitates using at least one of the components Time Management, Payroll Accounting, Controlling, Maintenance, Project System, Customer Service or External Services as well. With each integrated component you increase the added value of CATS
Your employees can call up CATS either directly in the SAP system or via an integration with SAP Employee Self Services in your company’s portal.
Via SAP FIORI you can call up the time sheet both on your smartphone or tablet and in a traditional web browser.
We at HCM ADVICE have many years of experience introducing, adapting and extending CATS and are happy to help you optimize CATS for your company. Please see our flyer for more information on how to use CATS in conjunction with process orders or how to make sure that all working hours are distributed among orders:
GENERAL & STRUCTURAL AUTHORIZATIONS
Since highly sensitive data is stored in your SAP Human Capital Management System, it is important to grant access to authorized staff only.
To implement effective controls SAP provides a powerful authorization concept which allows you to combine individual authorizations and assign them to employees. This can be done manually or automatically on the basis of individually defined rules.
With SAP Authorization Concept you can both authorize your employees to call up specific programs and determine which data they can view (For example, national HR staff should be able to call up only employee data from the relevant country.)
Different kinds of access can be specified (read-only, change, erase, dual control change, etc.) and assigned separately.
Using the structural authorizations, you can also determine which organizational units within your Organizational Structure (based on positions) an employee has access to. In case of staffing changes, employees automatically receive the correct authorizations for their new positions.
With many years of experience, we at HCM ADVICE are happy to support you with planning and implementing the optimal Authorization Concept for a smooth business.
