You can use this process to modify the dashboard to suit your company requirements. You determine which work lists are contained in the dashboard and assign them to one of the application areas delivered by SAP.
You create dashboard profiles and store the worklists’ properties there. You then assign the profiles to the worklists.
You use Customizing settings to configure the dashboard. For the relevant IMG activities, see Implementation Guide (IMG) for SAP E-Recruiting under Technical Settings → Dashboard .
SAP delivers a series of tables. On the one hand, these tables contain the work areas to which you can assign worklists; on the other hand, the tables contain the possible basic settings from which you create the profiles that contain the configuration settings of the dashboard.
The following graphic illustrates the relationships between basic settings and dashboard profiles.
You define selection profiles
You use the IMG activities Define Selection Profiles for Worklists and Assign Values to Selection Profiles for Worklists to create selection profiles. In these profiles, you specify the selection fields and the selection conditions that are to be used to provide the data from the database tables or index tables for worklists.
If you use index tables, you cannot specify any restrictions for the selection fields.
You define output profiles
You use the IMG activities Define Output Profiles for Worklists and Activate Links of Fields in Output Profiles to Objects to create output profiles. In the profiles, you specify how the output of the extracted data is to be displayed in a worklist. In doing so, you can also specify the columns, the order of the entries, and links from table entries to other objects for the worklist tables.
In worklists, you can display links to the candidates’ resumes that the candidates uploaded to their profiles as attachments. To do so, you must specify the attachment type to which the resumes are assigned. You make this setting in the Implementation Guide for SAP E-Recruiting under Basic Settings → Attachment Types → Identify Attachment Type as Resume .
You define function profiles
You perform the IMG activity Define Function Profiles for Worklists to create the function profiles. In these profiles, you specify which functions are provided for the work items of a worklist.
You define worklists
You perform the IMG activity Define Worklists to create the worklists. You assign a selection profile, an output profile, and a function profile to each worklist and enter an OTR text that is displayed as the name of the worklist in the dashboard. You also specify the application area under which a worklist is displayed in the navigation tree of the dashboard. To do this, you assign the profiles to the application areas delivered by SAP.
The following application areas are provided for selection:
You want to configure dashboards for different contexts
You want to provide dashboards for different contexts and thus configure dashboards to suit different users.
The following IMG activities are relevant for this:
You perform the IMG activity Define Context to create the context in which you want to modify the dashboard.
You can perform the IMG activity Specify Names of Application Areas in a Context to change the application areas’ names delivered by SAP for the contexts that you created.
You perform the IMG activity Assign Worklists to Contexts to specify which worklists are displayed in a context in the relevant application areas and in what order they are displayed.
