SAP provides very useful and robust functionality to capture employee time in Cross-Application Time Sheets (CATS). CATS is a mechanism to capture employee time and post to cost centers, projects, networks, or other cost objects. Over the last couple of months we have covered the following topics:
Understanding the basics of CATS
Using CATS Data: Updating CO
Using CATS Data: Updating PM
Using CATS Data: Updating PS
Using CATS Data: Updating HR
Transferring CATS Data
CATS User Parameters
CATS User Exits

We've covered several aspects of CATS over the last several blog posts. As we come to an end of the series, we must talk about available user exits to enhance the CATS experience. There are a total of 14 user exits for use with CATS.
Utilizing user exits allows for additional functionality and behind-the-scenes data processing. These user exits allow automatic lookups, formatting, validations, etc. to reduce user input and data entry errors.List here you see 5 of the user exits I ...
We've been covering CATS (cross-application time sheets) functionality over the last several blog posts. SAP has provided a way to make using some of that functionality easier with User Parameters.
Many of you already know about user parameters and how they are useful to default in such things as company code or cost center. Employees entering data through should also use the parameters to make the process more efficient. Parameter PER should be set for each employee with their own personnel number.
Continuing with our blog series about CATS, we'll next cover CATS Profiles. At the most basic level, CATS Profiles determine the data entry fields available for entry or display:
How the timesheet will appear
Allow individual employee or multiple employee entry
Fields available for entry and to be displayed
The number of days available to be entered
Profiles have 8 sections that may be configured to produce the desired data entry process.

We have previously covered Understanding the basics of CATS (cross-application time sheets) showing how SAP provides a very robust method to capture time data and have that data passed to other SAP modules. Then we continued to discuss how CO, PM, PS, and HR may use that capture time data.
Using CATS Data: Updating CO (controlling)
Using CATS Data: Updating PM (plant maintenance)
Using CATS Data: Updating PS (project systems)
Using CATS Data: Updating HR (human resources)
The next step is to transfer the capture time ...
In our previous posts, we discussed Understanding the basics of CATS (cross-application time sheets) and the robustness that it provides to capture employee time data. We then covered three modules that care about costing: Using CATS Data: Updating CO (controlling), Using CATS Data: Updating PM (plant maintenance), and Using CATS Data: Updating PS (project systems).
When we enter time in CATS there are several interactions with the HR module. CATS captures actual hours attended or absent, validates absences with absence quotas during ...
In our previous posts, we discussed Understanding the basics of CATS (cross-application time sheets) showing how SAP provides a very robust method to capture time data and have that data passed to other SAP modules. We then covered Using CATS Data: Updating CO (controlling) to see how controlling may use the CATS data. The next module we will discuss CATS updating is Plant Maintenance.
CATS will generate confirmations for maintenance and service orders and will do this with Receiver orders, Operation number, and Sub-operations. ...
