2545378 - Unit Displayed for Time Account Balance Display in Time Off ESS is not Consistent


Unit displayed in balance of favourite time types on ESS UI is not consistent.

If unit is hours, in some cases both hours and days are shown, and for others only hours is shown.

How do we control this?  Please advise as we've checked the configuration of the time account types and they are the same.

This behavior is as currently expected. This is because the display of balance is switched to hours only, if the size of the TimeType panel is too narrow for the complete text.

In the screenshots, we can see that the time value with hours only shown has two more decimal places (121.78 hours) compared to the other screenshot (200 hours). This results in more space, therefore the days are not displayed here to save space.


Engineering have an open enhancement for possibility to always show only Hours if unit on associated time type is hours.

Then, if the unit is "Hours", we would never show days. We will always show in hours and minutes format.

There has been no release date set as of yet, please ask your CSM to follow enhancment TIM-6147
