EIT is added at responsibility level and SIT is added at Business group Level here is one eg: Say like there is a company which has offices in 2 countries. Take india and china Now I want some values which are local to india has no relevance to China. In that case i will put them as a EIT and add to the responsibility which India can access now china cant see those values at all as they have a different responsibility. On the other hand if there are some value which are common to both india and china I will add it as a SIT it will be shown in both responsibility.
When you use a DFF, e.g. for a person, you cannot enter multiple rows. But this is possible for EITs and SITs.
If you want to enter a passport number for a person, you can use a DFF (one field passport number). But if you want to enter multiple passport numbers for one person, you could use an EIT (maybe a field nationality, passport number, date from, date to).
SITs are datetracked. But for EITs you can also add fields like "valid from" and "valid to". That would mean that you have something like datetracking also for an EIT. But the big difference is, that in the forms, the SIT will be orderd descending by the date "valid from". I didn't succeed in ordering an EIT.
The EIT can be configured as single row or multiple rows during the setup whereas the SIT cannot. So in case you want to maintain a single row of information (for example sexual orientation) EIT might be better suited.
In the SuperHRMS responiblity, under the Security menu, you have a couple of functions such as Task Flow, Task Nodes, Custom Form etc. These are used to enforce data restriction as well as to design the flow of HR forms.
For restricting access to SITs based in responsibility, in the CustomForm, create a new custom form that is based on the SIT form.
Here you would get the option to decide which are the SITs that should be made available when this custom form is used.
Create a task flow node for the same, attach it to a task flow and reference the same in the form function definition for your responsibility.
