Standard configuration steps in the IMG allow you to add and modify the tab pages that appear in the detail section of the Organization and Staffing screen for Organizational Management (OM). You can insert existing infotypes or custom infotypes and change the description of the infotypes.
Key Concept

In a past issue, you wrote about how to best use the Organization and Staffing
mode for OM. Is it possible to add my own infotypes to the detail area of the screen
and change tab names, and if so, can you explain how to do that?

Thanks for the question. R/3 gives you the flexibility to add and modify the tab pages that appear in the detail section of the Organization and Staffing screen for OM as you ask. Through standard configuration steps found in the IMG, you can insert existing infotypes or custom infotypes and change the description of the infotypes as they appear on the screen.

It is quite simple to modify the tab layout in Organization and Staffing to tailor the process to your business or user population. Let’s walk through a couple of examples that show how to change the tab descriptions on existing infotypes as well as how to insert a new infotype to a standard OM scenario.
