Cause

A possible cause is that there are no schedule models maintained in the Time Model view. In the Input help, there are only time models listed that are listed as schedule model in the time model view.

Resolution

For data migration, only models of type schedule model are supported. To make them available, you must have selected them in the project scope under Questions in the Human Resources area. Also, you must have configured the schedule models in the Time Administration work center before you migrate time and labor management data.
