Use these eight planning and configuration tips when you implement SAP E-Recruiting.
Key Concept
A sound project management approach with sufficient lead time is required for implementation of SAP E-Recruiting. It takes more time to plan the customizing and obtain buy-in than it does to actually perform the configuration.

SAP E-Recruiting, which manages end-to-end processing of talent, was available as of February 2005. It works with SAP HR releases from 4.0B. The mySAP ERP 2005 release of SAP E-Recruiting was available as of Ramp-Up in October 2005.
