Understanding the ‘Organization’ window

The Organization window

The Organization window

The ’Organization’ window consists of the following sections:

1. Name: The name of the Organization
2. Type: This is a lookup that you user can define (ORG_TYPE)

(Document on Lookups to follow)

3. Date: Effective Date. This can also be changed manually while creating the organization.
4. Location: Location Details and Address
5. Descriptive Flexfield: You can configure the ‘Location Address’ Descriptive Flexfield if required.

Refer to document ‘Identify Descriptive Flexfield’ to know which DFF to setup.

6. Organization Classifications: This will determine what type of organization this is and how the entity will behave in the application depending on the role it plays. An organization may have several classifications attached to it.

For example, an organization may have people registered for it and may at the same time be maintaining stock and act as a training center. In that case, the organization will have to be classified as:

  1. HR Organization so that employees may be assigned there
  2. Inventory Organization so that items may be assigned to it
  3. Training Organization so that the organization may be available as a training center.

(More to follow on each Organization type – refer to respective applications).

7. Others: Depending on the classification, Additional Information may have to be entered.
