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 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 are all familiar with the fact that there are many components that must be in proper working order for the payroll process to result successfully. Each component is a risk point in the payroll process and mitigation of that risk is necessary. Some components are outside of the payroll department control and result is a dependency on other areas that may not always consider payroll requirements.
Payroll processes combines data from several sources including:
HRSPs (HR Support Packs)
Configuration (custom and delivered)
