 Planned Working Time Infotype (0007)


In this infotype, you define when and where an employee has to work for a personnel assignment. You also specify how the employee’s time data is to be processed.


By assigning a work schedule rule in the Planned Working Time infotype (0007), you specify an employee’s long-term personal planned working time.

Note Note

If employees have short-term changes to their working times, you should use the Substitutions infotype (2003).

End of the note.

You can also store working time provisions for part-time employees. If you do not have separate work schedules for part-time employees, you can reduce the employment percentage to map the part-time provision.

You also specify how the employee’s time data is to be processed.


The table below defines in more detail the options in the Planned Working Time infotype (0007):

Work Schedule Rule

In this field, you enter the employee’s work schedule.

Time Management Status

You use this indicator to specify how you want the employee’s time data to be processed. For example, it determines whether time data is evaluated in time evaluation or is not valuated until payroll.

Caution Caution

An employee’s time data can be evaluated in time evaluation only if you have entered one of the following time management statuses:

- Time evaluation (actual)

- Time evaluation PDC

- Time evaluation of planned times

- Time evaluation without payroll integration

End of the caution.

For more information, see The Time Management Status .

Working Week

In this field, you specify which working week (for example, 7 or 14 days, start of working week is a Sunday, and so on) is valid for the employee.

Part-Time Employee

Select this field if you want to reduce the planned working time of an existing full-time work schedule rule to the percentage specified in the Employment Percentage field.

Also select this field if you have created a special work schedule rule for part-time employees. You can then use the part-time status of these employees as a criterion in statistical queries.

Dynamic Daily Work Schedule

This field is shown when you select the Part-Time Employee field and choose Enter. If you select this field, the system reduces the planned working time determined by the work schedule rule to the percentage you entered in the Employment Percentage field. You should select this field for all part-time employees.

When calculating an employee's new working time, the system uses the specifications from the daily work schedule for the work schedule rule. The system takes the start of work time from the daily work schedule as its starting point and, taking into account the break schedule, adds the new number of planned hours.

Daily/Weekly/Monthly/Annual Working Hours

The system calculates the information in these fields based on the work schedule rule you enter. If you change the value in one of the fields manually, the system automatically recalculates the values in the remaining fields.

Weekly Workdays

If required, you can overwrite the number of workdays per week calculated by the system. This information is mostly provided for planning purposes and can be included in evaluations. It has no effect on how the planned working time is structured.

Minimum/Maximum Daily/Weekly/Monthly/Annual Working Hours

These fields are shown when you select the Part-Time Employee field and choose Enter. You can enter value limits that are checked by time evaluation. The values do not affect the employee’s daily work schedule.

You can also set up this infotype to include the Additional Time ID field. This is a special indicator that you can use to process data according to customer-specific requirements. The field is not used in the standard SAP system.
