Assigning a Person Temporarily

You can "assign" persons temporarily to an organizational unit if, for example, their final position is not definite when they are hired. You do this by entering the object type and number of the organizational unit in the dialog box where you would have specified the position.

This organizational unit is stored only in infotype 0001. A relationship is not created in Organizational Management.

Since a default position is stored in infotype 0001, this type of assignment is incomplete and you should replace it as soon as possible by properly assigning the person to a position. You can do this either by performing a transfer, or by creating a relationship between the person and a position in the Organizational Management system. The "temporary" organizational unit is then replaced by the correct one assigned to the position.

Report RHSBES00 enables you to display or evaluate such temporary assignments. To run this report, choose Reporting ® Position on the main Organization and Planning screen.

You can program other evaluations using the function module RH_PERSON_WITH_ ORGUNIT_ONLY, which scans specific organizational units for persons with an incomplete position assignment. Such persons can be identified by the presence of a default position in their infotype 0001 record.
