Reproducing the Issue
- Go to Time Administration work center
- Select Employees view
- Search for the employee and select Edit
- Navigate to Employee Times tab
- Select time entry on DD1.MM1.YYYY (eg: 01.09.2020) and select Actions > Activate
- Select Save
Then error occurs.
You have a time entry on the DD.MM.YYYY (eg: 31.08.2020) that is in pending cancellation. While saving the system is also picking this one up and trying to process it.
As long as this entry is not processed you will keep getting the financial period error.
To process this time entry you need to open up the process control for the company of the employee. Afterwards you can release this cancellation and save it.
