1303118 - Employee Time Shows on Report Even Though No Time Recording Was Done

Symptom

The Employee Time report shows some time recordings for the employees, but they did not record any time explicitly.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the work center Time Administration
  2. Select the view Reports
  3. Select the report Employee Times

Cause

The employee has an Exception-Based time recording method assigned.

To check if an employee has Exception-Based recording enabled, follow the below steps:

  1. Go to the work center Time Administration
  2. Select the view Employees
  3. Select the employee and select the button Edit
  4. In the tab General, there is a field called Time Recording Method 

The Exception-Based time recording method implies that the employee is supposed to record time only in case of exceptions to his working schedule (vacation, illness...).

If the employee does not record any time, the system will assume that he/she has been working according to the working schedule and will take the working schedule as recorded time.

Resolution

If this is not the behavior intended for the time recording, it is possible to change the recording method to Positive.

When a Positive recording method is selected, the employee is always supposed to record any sort of time proactively.

  1. Go to the work center Time Administration
  2. Select the view Employees
  3. Select the employee and click the button Edit
  4. Select the tab Time Profile
  5. Select the sub-tab Basic Data
  6. Here, you can maintain the recording method for an employee.
