Symptom

(Message /CPD/SS_MESSAGES 295: Cost Center cannot be determined for the Employee ...)

Environment

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Use App: Plan Internal Projects (F1656)
  2. Open an Internal Project.
  3. Switch to "Edit"-mode.
  4. Go to tab: Work Packages and call the "Details" of the Work Package.
    Or go to tab: Team.
  5. Staff the role by using "Add Resource".
  6. Select the "Resource" in the Pop-Up.
  7. Error-message "Cost Center cannot be determined for the Employee ..." (/CPD/SS_MESSAGES 295) is displayed.

Cause

The Error-Message is displayed because the start date of the resource is after the start date of the planned period of the effort of the role.

For example:
The effort of the role is planned from Jan 2019 to Dec 2019.
The resource which should be assigned is valid from Mar 2019 to Dec 9999.

As the start of the resource is after the start date of the effort of the role - the message "Cost Center cannot be determined for the Employee ..." is displayed.

Resolution

Check the start and finish date of the resource and check/change the period of the effort of the role.

  1. Open the app "Employee Fact Sheet" by using ">" in the pop-up of the available resources while trying to staff the role. Check the start and   finish date of the resource.
