Learn how to use infotype 41 (Date Specifications) and infotype 19 (Monitoring of Dates) to manage all the dates for employees stored in your R/3 HR/Payroll system.

The employees stored in your R/3 HR/Payroll system have dates and lots of them. They have hire dates, term dates, load dates, next review dates, last review dates, adjusted service dates, benefit dates, service dates, and so on. Infotype 41 (Date Specifications) and infotype 19, (Monitoring of Dates) can help you manage them.

Infotype 41

Infotype 41 is designed to store dates (Figure 1)  As the customer, you define your date types to whatever fits with your company best. You could use the ones in Figure 1 or create your own unique date types. Infotype 41 is a useful source of accurate employee date storage. Often, other dates that are stored in R/3, such as action/event start and end dates, are not “true” dates.
