2719901 - Creation Of Task Using The Local User Current Time


When creating a new task, you are expecting the system to bring the user's current time in the Start Date/Time and the Due Date/Time fields.


SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Activities work center.
  2. Go to the Tasks view.
  3. Click the New button.

Result: the Start Date/Time and the Due Date/Time fields are showing in the future. They are rounded up to the next full half an hour, for example: 30 minutes ahead of user's current time.


This is the current system behavior. It is not supported to configure the Start Date/Time in the local user's time stamp.

This behavior also applies for Appointments.
