2555362 - Field Display Order for Custom Fields on Employee Time Object


  • Can the field order on Employee Time Object / Time Off UI be modified?
  • Does the Employee time object Respect the order in which fields are created?

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

Two custom fields are configured on the Employee Time object, and were placed as the third and fourth field respectively. However, the fields are displayed at the bottom of the screen when requesting leave, as shown below:

Expected behavior. The order within custom/conditional fields is not respected on the Employee Time Object.


An Enhancement Request already was created for this, however, it is not planned to be Implemented in the near future.

As this is more of a nice-to-have feature, it has a lower priority against the number of must-have features and enhancements which are still missing in EC Time Off. This can be resubmitted in the future
