XSL Template

SAP Fieldglass has standard PDF files for various pages that may need to be printed. Often, though, a customer needs to retrieve that data in a specific PDF format.

XSL Templates are used to generate custom PDF documents and contracts. The template determines the data to be included on the invoices and contracts as well as the formatting of the file.

XSL, which stands for Extensible Stylesheet Language, is a language for expressing style sheets. An XSL style sheet is a file that describes how to display an XML document of a given type. It gives us the opportunity to change formatting and data into custom parameters.

The XSL Template sets the formatting and display standards for a document, such as an invoice.

Navigating the XSL Template Admin Object

Select the XSL Template admin object from the Configuration section of the admin menu to view a list of XSL templates associated to WorkingNet’s tenant.

Configure an XSL Template

WorkingNet has some instances where a PDF of a worker time sheet must be provided, with a hard copy and a wet signature from the manager who approved them. In order for these documents to be compliant for internal auditing, they need to make changes to the standard PDF printout that comes out of SAP Fieldglass.

In order to support this, you, as WorkingNet’s SAP Fieldglass administrator, will make slight amendments to the standard XSL Template for time sheets.
