This article is the followup of previous article inthis link

In this article, you will see the detailed step by step instruction for creating a new Self Service Human Resource data entry screen using configuration and personalizations.
To summarize, we need to create a Flexfield structure for data entry with four segments. Thereafter a custom function and a custom menu will be created to invoke the Special Information Type page. Our custom function will thereafter be personalized so that a dedicated screen is made available to the self service HRMS Users for this data entry. The custom AOL function will also be registered against the HRMS Global menu, so that it can be accessible from SSHR [Self Service HRMS].
First and foremost, identify the Key Flexfield to be configured
Navigate to Application developer responsibility and click menu Register
The main table that captures the data for Special Information Types has a Key Flexfield named PEA, that has title "Personal Analysis Flexfield"
Note the name of flexfield title for the SIT Table PER_ANALYSIS_CRITERIA Use this title to query/create the FlexField Segments. 
Query the flexfield and create a new structure named "XXapps2fusion_COMPL_HOLIDAY"
Ensure that the desired flexfield checkboxes for Freeze and Allow Dynamic Inserts is enabled.
Create the desired segments. These segments will appear as data entry fields.
This value set style is Poplist, therefore the end user will see a drop down list in Self Service HRMS screen. 
The value set selected here is of List Type Poplist, so that data entry screen will render a DropDown list for data entry
Freeze the flexfield
Ensure that flexfield structure is frozen and Dynamic inserts are allowed.
Now navigate to HRMS Manager responsibility and register your Flexfield structure by creating a new record in "Special Information Type" scree.
 In HRS Manager responsibility, navigate to Special Information Types screen, and create a new record for your key Flexfield structure. Ensure that "Other" checkbox is enabled.
Create a new custom function named XXapps2fusion_SIT_COMPL_FUNC, with username "apps2fusion Holiday Complaint"
This function will be based upon the standard function HR_SIT_SS, however we will change the references to the function, as shown in table below
Field Value
Function XXapps2fusion_SIT_COMPL_FUNC
User Function Name apps2fusionHoliday Complaint
Type SSWAjspfunction
HTML Call OA.jsp?akRegionCode=HR_CREATE_PROCESS_TOP_SS&akRegionApplicationId=800&OAFunc=XXapps2fusion_SIT_COMPL_FUNC
Parameters pAMETranType=SSHRMS&pAMEAppId=800&pProcessName=HR_SIT_JSP_PRC&pItemType=HRSSA&pCalledFrom=XXapps2fusion_SIT_COMPL_FUNC&pPersonID=&pFromMenu=Y
This custom function must be attached to the menu that is used by your responsibility
Add your custom function to the Employee Self Service menu or any other desired menu.
IMPORTANT - This custom AOL function must also be registered against the HR Global Menu, as shown below
Add Prompt="Complaint Holiday Rejection" and Function="apps2fusionHoliday Complaint" to the HR Global Self Service Custom Menu
Navigate to Functional Administrator responsibility and clear the cache
Now navigate to your responsibility, where you will be able to access your custom form.
However all the SIT flexfield structures will be displayed. In order to create the screen that is dedicated to our fields, for holiday complaints, we must personalize at Function Level.
During personalization, you will specify the segments that must be displayed

Click on personalize page link .     Search for the Flexfield to be personali?

Capture the list of segments that you wish to display in the summary screen

Return to the Application 

This will show the screen dedicated to our flexfield structure. This screen will allow the end users to Delete/Update/Insert/View records against their person ord.

Excellent post.... Thanks!
0 #2 bedabrata 2009-10-12 09:04
I have a requirement to hide a segment from a flexfield and show another which is already defined in the flexfield. Now I came across your article and tried to personalize the page and as mentioned above but with no luck.

I only altered the 'Segment List' removing the old segment with the new segment at function level. The existing layout remains unchanged. Any suggestion would be of great help....
0 #3 bedabrata 2009-10-12 09:14
Sorry for the trouble... It was resolved... I was hitting the wrong Flex...

Thanks !

Hi Anil.

I was able to complete your Part 1 of the training. But in Part 2 I am not able to see the 'Personlize the Page' link in the page which opens from the custom Function created by me. Help will be appreciated.

Hi Prashanth

Plea se set the following profile options
1. Personalize Self-Service Defn
2. FND: Personalization Region Link Enabled

Profil e option values are usually cached, therefore I suggest you use Functional Administrator to set these profile options, as the changes done from profile option screen in Func Admin are immediately visible to the application.

Hi Anil,

this artical is very useful. Thanks for your efforts . I understood from your article that we have to use segmentlist to enable the Flexfield in the self serivce. When I try to enable the Additional Qualification Flexfield in the Self Service can I follow the similar process of personalization . Apart from that if I want to enable more than one Additional Qualification Code in the Same segment list can I to use ';' to separate them. The code name is US CDL|segment1|Se gment2 etc if I want the Canada CDL (Next Dff) in the same segment list is it to be separated by ; please advise

Thanks & Regards,
0 #8 Anil Passi- 2009-10-24 12:09
Hi R Murugesh

Yes, you can use Struct1|seg1|se g2||Struct2|Seg 1|Seg2|seg3

Hi Anil,

I have a requirement that if a approver is not approving the request in the given time (say 24 hrs after it reaches ) it have to time out and go to next level. Can this requirement be handled through AME or can it be handled onyl by workflow . Say for example if I am setting the timeout in workflow then will it go to the next person mentioned in the approval list of AME .

please advise

Regards ,
0 #11 Anil Passi- 2009-11-06 03:59
You should use WF Builder for timeout.
AME can simply plug into WF for notifications where timeouts can be configured

Hello Anil,

hope you are doing well. I have followed your exercises and it has greatly helped me to create and customize specific screens using Special Information Types.
I noticed that although I have personalized the screens as per your explanations, when I go to Special Information Types, I still find the structures and segments for which I have created different screens. Can you please advise as to how I can disable those structure and segments that I don't want to see.

Thanks and Regards
0 #13 Bhavna 2009-11-09 06:53
Hello Anil,

I need to use Special Information Types for two different functions and I need to personalize 2 different screens for them. I have followed the steps as per your guide and I am able to personalize only 1 screen. The other screen is not coming up. I would like to know if I can personalize two or more screens using special information type.

Thanks for your help

B havna
0 #14 Anil Passi- 2009-11-09 14:22
Of course you can personalize as many pages. I assume you have two different functions.

Ple ase elaborate what you the second page isn't coming up, are you seeing a blank screen or some error .....
Try to run that page function without any function level personalization on that page
0 #15 Bhavna 2009-11-10 02:51
Hello Anil,

thanks for replying. I have been able to solve the problem. The source of the problem was with my flexfields and segments.

Now the fields are appearing.

Tha nks and Regards
0 #16 Iggy 2009-11-24 07:29
I see we can have a list box, but what if I wanted to show info in a text area (much bigger) instead of a text field?

Hi Anil

Great Article. Is this possible in release 11.5.10 (SS 4.0) ?
0 #20 Stalin 2010-03-09 02:06
Thanks for the article. This inspired me try in EIT and it works there too by simple ways. Here the steps are..

1. Define DFF for "Extra Person Information" and create the segments as per your busines requirement
2. Frezze the DFF and compile the DFF
3. US Super HRMS Manager --> Submit Request --> "Register Extra Information Types (EITs)"
Paramenters: Table name => "PER_PEOPLE_INF O_TYPES"
Information Type => As per your requirement
All others are default
4. Submitt the request.
5. Naviage to US Super HRMS Manager --> Security --> Information Type Security
(a) In the responsibility name select "Employee Self Service"
(b) Add the
6. Navigate to "Eployee self service" => "Extra Information"
7. You will be able to see your DFF there ...you can do the transactions like add or modify or delete.

Thanks anil for the road map.

Thanks Stalin

Martin- Yes this is possible on 11.5.10 too, infact even on 11.5.9 :)
In order to implement entire series as in apps2fusion.com/apps-training/apps-functional-documents/ame-sshr you might need to be on AME.B which is not available on base 11.5.10

Thanks ,

Thanks Anil for your hard work and great job in this article and others as well

I have created one request and this request is linked to SIT that have e.g. 15 segments, I want the requester to be able to enter only 5 segments, and the request will be sent for 2 approvers lets say (HR and Finance)
the HR: can see the segments (1-5) read only, and update the segments (6-10)
and the Finance: can see segments (1-10) read only, and update the segments (11-15)

i know that ($RO$) can be used to make the segment as read only, but how can i apply this on the other approvers. please advice.
Highly appreciated your corporation in advance

0 #23 Elaine 2010-05-21 13:24
Hello working on some requirements/so lutions for Oracle R12 OAB and SSHR for Benefits Enrollement purposes.
Could this process be used to configure and personalise SSHR to display the Flex Credit tally on each screen and show its value after the user hits recalculate button.
This way it would not be a customization and the users would get a running tally on each screen as changes are made instead of waiting until the end to submit and confirm.
0 #24 Fkex 2010-06-30 12:45
Hi Anil

I have requirements to design SIT, first field Employee no which should be LOV and other fields contains employee information but once i choose the employee number from the LOV the other fields should populate automatic
0 #25 Vibha Pandey 2011-02-25 08:48
The other pages which I create using OAF are stored under proper directory. Where are these pages stored. Where can I retrive this page from so as to provide a destination link in the other form for the call?

This was an excellent post, I needed to create a new screen for different policy acknowledgement s. Even the questions from others were helpful as I needed to add more than one SIT and the answer was within the comments. Without this article and comments I would have been stuck.
0 #30 Pragnya 2011-11-22 01:31
Hi Anil,

After approving the appraisal, the information in the EIT is supposed to get updated.But one of the fields are not appearing(PEI_I NFORMATION9) from the table PER_PEOPLE_EXTR A_INFO.I have tried to check the tables PER_APPRAISALS and I see that the attribute1(READ INESS LEVEL) is mapped correctly and the table is updated as soon as the appraisal is completed.

Can you please let me know the flow as to where I have to check for the table PER_PEOPLE_EXTR A_INFO that gets updated?

Is there any workflow being launched after the appraiser approves the notification?

Many thanks
