Time Recording !!

Hello Team,

How are you all doing?

I need some inputs regarding the time recording. Actually, at my client's place the procedure follwed is like this.

All the department heads send the timesheets to the HR department every month and the HR will enter the the Absences and Over time details into the SAP. In that sense there is a negative time recording being maintained.

Now that they are in the process of implementing SAP, they would like to know what is the best practice to record Time in the SAP. Do they have to record the time using any external machines? Is there any interface that can connect the time recording systems with SAP so that the automatic entry of the time is made?

Please let me know which one is better? Positive or Negative.

Waiting for your response.

Thanks in advance.

ther are third party tools available which integrates well with our sap system in that case the vendor will come up with the kinda data format they want and based on that data will b uploaded..not a big job..

in case u wanna upload data using negative TM ..go abt uploading infotype using BDC,LSMW everymonth for attendance , absence...

if u go for that case ther may b few integration issues in the starting ...but i have seen it and it'll work...but if u have the option of negative and dont want to take risk..negative goes ur way..

plz reward points and close the thread
