2669114 - Displayed taken days in Time Workbench different from requesting field in absence details


When recording an absence, the displayed Taken days in Time Records tab in workbench is different from the Requested Days shown in the absence details popup


  • Employee Central
  • People Profile (PP3)

Reproducing the Issue

1. Request for an absence (e.g July 12-16 2018).

Sample Scenario:

  • July 14 and 15 are non-working days based on user's Work Schedule.
  • Time Type - Duration Display According To is set to "Calendar Days".

2. The Taken Days showing is 3.

3. Click the absence record to show the details. Requesting field shows 5 days.


This is an expected behavior.


Currently the display of Taken column in the workbench is based on Work Schedule. There is already a planned Enhancement to support the display of Taken absence/s based on deduction quantity and calendar days but there is no confirmed delivery date yet.
