WHEN CHANGING AN EXISTING TIME TYPE:

  1. Go to manage time off structures;
  2. Select an existing time type which has a time account type;
  3. Try to change the "Duration display according to";
  4. Get the same error message;

Cause

Expected behavior

Resolution

If the Duration Display According to is set as 'Calendar Days', then you cannot assign Time account posting rules (or Time account types) to that particular Time Type.

This is as per system design.

Which means that it is not supported to change a Time Type which has a time account type to "Calendar Days".
