  • Import of bookings will work but SAP does not recommend to upload Time Account Details of posting types other than manual adjustment for below reasons:
  1. For accruals you use our calendar runs. There are automated processed behind accruals, if you do not follow this process follow-up problems may occur. Please use the calendar run for accrual creation.
  2. Time Account Details of type Employee Time are automatically created when you create absence via UI or via MDF-import. Based on information like working hours in a work schedule the system automatically calculates the amount to be deducted from the time account. These time account details then refer to the employee time object.
