System works as Designed.

The flag "Use current date" is set



When the Flag  “Use current date” is checked, the Close Periods  App will get executed taking the current System date as Input parameter and the corresponding Period will get closed.

This System date is the date/time as per the date/time where the SAP system or server is located.

The System time for Cloud customers is GMT ( Greenwich Mean Time ) .


Update the Job Schedule Start time or Job Start Time under "Define Recurrance Pattern" in the App "Schedule Job for Closing Periods" to take into consideration the GMT timelines of the Cloud system and not use the local time
