Personal Data Service
The Personal Data service enables the employees in your enterprise to display and edit their own personal data. In this way, employees can keep their own data up-to-date, while simultaneously reducing the number of time-consuming and expensive activities performed by the Human Resources Department.

Intranet - Employee Self-Service
There are no restrictions concerning which employees can use this service.
An employee must have an SAP user that is directly linked to his or her employee master data in the system via the Communication infotype (0105).
SAP provides a role containing all the necessary authorizations.
For more information, see Set Up and Maintain ESS Users.
To set up SAP users, you have to make various settings in Customizing. For more information, see the HR Management Implementation Guide (IMG) under HR Management → Employee Self-Service.
In this service, the fields are reduced to their essentials so that newly hired employees with no knowledge of the SAP system can also edit their own personal data.
The Personal data service has country-specific screens for:
● United Kingdom
● Hong Kong
● New Zealand
● The Netherlands
● South Africa
The screen that appears for a specific employee depends on that employee’s assignment to a certain personnel area. If a country other than those listed above uses the HTML template, the French screen appears by default. This is because this screen is the most general. Other country-specific screens will be made available in later releases.
You can deactivate fields as required, or change them into display fields (which prevents them from being maintained).
The service name of this service is PZ13. For more information, see Web Application Builder for ITS Services.
