If you are an SAP programmer working with more than just the SAP Human Resources (HR) module, you know that, by comparison, HR is one of the most demanding and challenging of SAP’s functional components. SAP HR has its own idiosyncrasies that you must understand in order to develop effective HR solutions, and experienced programmers will have an easier job if they have a thorough understanding of the tools and HR rules available to aid in HR development. This article provides an introduction to fundamental HR capabilities by showing you how to enhance standard infotypes and create custom ones, including how to use the HR features tool, HR function module exits, and dynamic actions to effectively modify infotype behavior, to help you pave the way to a successful HR implementation.
