2729528 - 1811: Approved Time Sheets resubmitted by v4admin after Q4 2018 Release

Symptom

Previously approved time sheets are resubmitted by v4dadmin (system user) after 1811 Production release

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll Time Sheet

Cause

This is a one time migration issue only.

With Q4 2018 release, additional time sheet fields such as Time Recording Method, Full Work Schedule, Absences, Manual Entries, Imported Entries, Generated Entries have been introduced for future enhancements and performance optimizations. See KBA 2711871.

The newly added time sheet attributes are not used yet in the original approved time sheets and when the additional attributes have been added to the time sheet, this leads to a change in the time sheet hash key which is calculated when a time sheet is being processed by a job. After the time sheets were approved, the system identified these as changed time sheets and created an amendment although the time sheet entries and data haven't changed.

Resolution

  • Resubmit the time sheets with status 'Draft Amendments' then reject the time sheets. This ensures that the original time sheets with 'Approved status' are processed insted of amendment time sheet.
  • Resubmit the time sheets with status 'Draft Amendments' then approve the time sheets. Note that with approval of the amendment time sheets, valuation results are not changed and same data as that of the previously approved time sheet is processed.
