2202839 - You Cannot Change the Time Profile Start Date of Employees

Symptom

Today you have hired an employee with a past date hire (e.g. 13.05.2009) and the system defaulted his Time Profile Start Date to the beginning of 3rd month before today's date.

You want to change his Time Profile Start Date, however when you change the Start Date and press enter in the keyboard the system undoes the change and shows the information message Start date set to DD.MM.YYYY (where DD.MM.YYYY is the original date).

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Time Administration work center
  2. Go to Employees view
  3. Search for the respective employee and click Edit
  4. Move to Time Profile tab
  5. Under Time Profile section, change the Start Date to the desired date and press enter

Notice that the system undoes the change and shows the information message Start date set to DD.MM.YYYY (where DD.MM.YYYY is the original date).

Cause

Currently, it is not possible to change the Start Date of the first Time Profile of an employee. It is defaulted to the beginning of the 3rd month before the system date on which hiring is performed.

For example:

Hiring performed on 15.07.2015.

Hiring date is 13.05.2009.

Time Profile Start Date is defaulted to 01.05.2015 (beginning of the 3rd month before the system date on which hiring is performed).

The assumption here is that for such past dated hires, employees shall not be recording time more than 3 months in past.

Resolution

SAP is looking into the possibility of providing the flexibility of changing an employee's Time Profile Start Date.

For the time being, if you have a requirement to change an employee's Time Profile Start Date please report an incident to SAP stating your reasons for such change and we'll analyze.
