2684886 - Start Date and End Date in Background Block Display as Time Period


In People Profile, the "Start Date" and "End Date" fields are not displayed. Instead, it displays it as "Time Period".

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

  1. Navigate to a Background Element, such as insideWorkExperience and see that the 'Start Date' and 'End Date' fields are displayed as 'Time Period':}



Once you have both "Start Date" and "End Date" enabled in Manage Business Configuration (BCUI) they will be displayed in the profile as "Time Period".

This is the expected system behavior.

However, if this is an important subject for your business requirements, please consider submitting an enhancement request, by following the instructions listed on KBA 2090228.
