SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Home work center;
  2. Under Time section, click on Edit Time Sheet;
  3. Receive error/warning messages.


The error occurs because your Time Profile information was created, but not yet saved by you.


To start recording times, it is necessary to first save your time sheet, without entering any data. To solve the error, click on Save, without changing anything. Close the Time Sheet and open it again. After doing that, your calendar will show up and you will be able to record your times.

In case this does not solve the issue, please create an SAP incident to check if a backend correction is required.
