Managing the Corporate Calendar

Objectives

After completing this lesson, you will be able to:

  • Create a corporate calendar in SAP Fieldglass and add a recurring event.

Corporate Calendar

Corporate Calendars are created to allow for regional differences in standard work schedules.

They allow users to appropriately schedule activities and milestones to ensure that they don’t occur during a period when there is no work activity for a particular site.

Corporate calendars do not appear as choices within transactions. Rather, they impact transactions by limiting or deferring certain activities during the periods defined on the calendar.

The Corporate Calendar is used to define non-work days such as weekends and holidays, which appear in purple on Time Sheets.

Corporate Calendar List page

The Corporate Calendar List page indicates the available calendars, but also indicates the number of sites each listed calendar is associated with. The site numbers are selectable, so you can go directly to the list of associated sites without having to view the calendar details page.

Corporate calendars indicate a company’s recurring non-working days, such as weekends, and specific non-working days, such as holidays.

Create a Corporate Calendar

WorkingNet has expanded into South America, opening an office in Sao Paulo, Brazil. To accommodate Brazilian holidays, WorkingNet needs a company calendar in SAP Fieldglass for that office.

As the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, you will need to create the company calendar and add the Brazilian Carnival as a holiday.
