Managing a Site

Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Create a Site in SAP Fieldglass.

Site

Site defines regions or geographic areas where an organization has offices and/or does business.

The geographical area a site represents can be as specific or as general as an organization requires, though they are usually configured to represent a broad geographic area, such as a city. Thus, a site allows an associated job posting to automatically reflect local conditions, such as calendars, rates, suppliers, and tax structures, among others.

Sites must be selected in certain transactions, such as job postings, in order to ensure that the procured workers are assigned to the correct office or work site.

Site List page

The Site List page displays a selectable site code as well as the site name, which typically is a city and state. The format of the site codes are determined by the individual organizations according to their preferences.

Site Details page

In addition to the standard details table and associations tree, a site’s details page also displays Configuration information.

There are many items in the SAP Fieldglass application that can be associated to, and consequently driven by, sites:

  • User
  • Activity Checklist
  • Supplier
  • Invoice Billing Schedule
  • Location
  • Custom Field
  • Invoice Adjustment
  • Corporate Calendar
  • Legal Entity
  • Invoice Tax Information
5The Site Configuration section of a Site Details page indicates the transactional objects that are enabled or locked for the selected site. The site configuration can only be edited by users with appropriate permissions.

Create a Site

WorkingNet has formed a new product unit, called NetAlysis, to develop network diagnostic software for its networking equipment.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you will need to create a company profile in the application to accommodate NetAlysis.

You’ve already created a business unit and cost centers for NetAlysis, so now you’ll create a site for the new team, which will be based at a new office in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
