Define period work schedules
In this step, you create period work schedules by specifying the
sequence of daily work schedules for a work schedule for one or more weeks.
Employees on a certain shift work the first week from Monday through
Friday from 8.00 a.m. to 4.45 p.m. (daily work schedule DAY1 for the
first week of the period work schedule from 01 to 05, daily work
schedule OFF for 06 and 07). In the second week, they work from Monday
to Friday from 2 p.m. to 9.45 p.m. (daily work schedule LATE 01 to 05,
and daily work schedule OFF from 06 to 07 in the second week of the period work schedule).
- You have defined personnel subarea groupings for work schedules.
- You have defined personnel subarea groupings for daily work schedules.
- You have created daily work schedules.
The standard SAP system contains a number of sample period work schedules for simple day shifts and rotating shifts.
Use SAP's sample entries as a reference.
1. Check SAP's sample entries.
2. Create period work schedules for your company.
a) Enter 01 for the personnel subarea grouping for daily work schedules.
b) Enter a name and a long text for the period work schedule.
c) Enter the number of the week in the Week number field.
Number the weeks sequentially if the period work schedule is for several weeks.
d) Enter the names of your daily work schedules in the 01 to 07
fields (e.g. daily work schedule DAY1 under 01). The nubers 01 to 07 stand for Monday to Sunday.
- If the number of days in a period is not divisible by seven, indicate the end of the period by entering *
in the relevant column for daily work schedules.
- If you create additional period work schedules at a later stage, please define the
for valuating absences.
If you use the SAP time evaluation or payroll accounting components, you should also define the
valuation class of the period work schedule for wage type generation.
