HR Transaction Types & Reasons
SAP transaction and position information including Required Second Approvers, Employment Actions (EA), Organizational Management Tool (OMT), Miscellaneous Deductions and Internal Service Request (ISR).
Required Second Approvers
Employment Actions (EA)
The Employment Action (EA) application allows users to submit, approve and reject HR lifecycle actions within organizational units (departments) that you have permission to access. EA leverages an automated workflow to transport the HR action to the departmental or enterprise approvers based on the established structural authorization.
All ISR types, with the exception of Position Creates and Position Copies (which use the Organizational Management Tool) will eventually be replaced by the Employment Action application. Additionally, EA offers a streamlined automated workflow, including validations to prevent inaccurate or mismatched data from being entered or rekeyed, and uploads HR actions directly into SAP.

Organizational Management Tool (OMT)
The Organizational Management Tool (OMT) allows you to view, edit, and create positions within the organizational units (departments) that you have permission to access. OMT is replacing the current ISR process for creating, copying, or maintaining vacant positions. Approval routing based on the request is automated in OMT. OMT offers a streamlined and self-service approach for managing positions within the Johns Hopkins organization.
