Time Management on ESS is divided in two parts: Leave Request Framework and CATS on ESS.

Leave Request Framework.

The Leave Request framework enables the employees to perform all the tasks they need to manage their leave requests and other absences for all of their personnel assignments.It supports the Concurrent Employment (CE) and it's written in Java Web Dynpro.

This framework is responsible to let the employees visualize all the Absences (IT2001) and Attendances (IT2002) that he already have on the backend, and lets him create new ones in way that integrates with the Universal Work List (UWL)and the ESS/MSS applications. When we say Submit a Leave Request the employee can submit an Absence request or an Attendance request

It has three major WD Services:

The Cross-Application Time Sheet (CATS) can be used to record individual persons' working times and other data in a central worksheet. Manager can input times for his employees as well.
