2442228 - Time Off is not Respecting Collision Configuration


When using split and delimit configuration for LOA the system will display an error " There are already absences for **user** in period day/month/Year - day/month/year, so this posting is not possible."

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

LOA (Maternity Leave) has been requested and approved in the system from 24 April 2017 to 29 December 2017.


Now you would like to request time off for 4 days within the Maternity leave period 24 April 2017 to 29 December 2017.



The below Error message is displayed:

Please evaluate that Time Management Collision Resolution and Time Type Collision Gouping is configured and assigned to the respective time type.


The existing absence is a LOA absence (time type Maternity Leave). Please see the restrictions described in the Time Off implementation Guide (chapter Handling Collisions Between Absences):

"New absences can be leaves of absence (LOA). If an existing absence is LOA, you see an error message"
