Learn how to create various objects such as position, organizational unit, and job through actions in Organizational Management.
Key Concept
An action triggers a series of infotypes, one after the other, for data entry. Actions in Organizational Management (OM) are similar to personnel actions in Personnel Administration (PA). In PA, personnel actions create a new personnel number (PERNR) and enter data for the new PERNR. They also capture events in the employee life cycle in the company (e.g., promotion, separation, or transfer). In OM, actions create organizational objects and enter the data for the created object in various infotypes that are called one after another.

A number of methods are available for creating objects in Organizational Management (OM), including expert mode, simple maintenance, organizational and staffing, and general structures. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, but in all these methods, you must create several infotypes. These infotypes vary depending on the object you’re creating and your organization’s needs.
