2635018 - Help Text In Time Off UI


Unable to see help text for the time off fields in ESS/MSS UI.


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - Time off

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create help text on the employee time object for few fields (say Start Date or End Date fields)
  2. Navigate to the time off Employee Self-Service Screen (ESS).
  3. Help text does not appear beside the Start Date or End Date field.


  • Help text is supported only for custom fields and the Time Type field.
  • No other fields support help text.


Raise an enhancement request if your requirement is to have help text on all the fields in time off.
