Ask the HR Expert: What's the Difference Between Long- and Short-Term Documents in Report RPUAUD00?

You have two ways to track and report on changes to infotype and field data. Long- and short-term documents allow you to report on infotype changes in report form or to track changes to specific fields in combination with other fields. However, SAP’s use of “long term” and “short term” has a different meaning than you might expect.
Dear HR Expert:
We are currently evaluating report RPUAUD00 (logged changes in infotype data). I would like to know the difference between long- and short-term documents and when you would use each type.
