Employee Central - time-Off


This option is enabled by default in People Profile within the Time Administration Workbench and Fiori Time Off ESS UI. It will not be available in the legacy (v12) Time Off ESS UI.

In the Fiori Time Off ESS UI there will be an option to disable recurring absence checkbox with the b1908 release. You can do this by following the below steps:

  1. In the Admin Center, go to Manage Permission Roles.
  2. Select the Employee Self Service role, and then choose Time Management User Permissions.
  3. Select the checkbox Create recurring absence in Employee Self Service scenario.

In the Fiori Time Off MSS UI, you cannot disable this. Admins still have the recurring absence feature as universal a feature without the possibility to deactivate.
