What are SAP HR Infotypes ?

Infotypes are information units in the Human Resources Management system.In SAP ABAP, groups of related data fields are bundled into infotypes. Infotypes structure information, facilitate data entry and allow data to be saved for specific periods. Infotypes serve as templates for users to enter data. From a database point of view, infotypes provide a data structure and a set of coherent data records. We use a time constraint to determine how the data records of an infotype react to each other in terms of time.

Different Info types in Personnel Administration:
