2503228 - Mass Deletion of Time Types

Symptom

How to mass delete Time Types?

Environment

  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central
  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite

Reproducing the Issue

Need to delete all the time types in the instance.

Resolution

The Time Types cannot be deleted if they are referenced. For example, even if one Employee Time (Approved, cancelled etc...) refers to a Time Type, then it is not possible to delete it.

Also deleting Time Account from Manage Data is not recommended but can be done in either of the below steps:

1. Manually delete all the Employee Times related to that time account via MDF Manage Data UI.

2. Manually delete Time Account via MDF Manage Data UI

OR

Using imports:

1. Download the Employee Time import template (Admin Center >Import and Export Data), Set the 'Operator' column with value 'DELETE' > Enter the details of the Employee times related to the Time Account that needs to be deleted > Import (This will delete the Employee Time(s))

2. Download the Time Account import template (Admin Center > Import and Export Data) > Set the 'Operator' column with value 'DELETE' > Enter the details of the Time Account that needs to be deleted > Import (This will delete the Time Account(s))

Else, the best option is to create new Time Types > Create new Time Profiles > Assign it to employees.
