Reproducing the Issue

Screenshot where Time Sheet day entry shows incorrect overtime and absence hours:


1. Go to a time sheet week for a negative time recorder where time sheet entries has already been generated by the system and select any time sheet day.


2. Click on Add Absence button then record a full day absence then click Save.



This is an expected system behavior.


  • Due to an intermediate state between an approved or pending time sheet and a new absence, if amendment is made to an already approved time sheet for a negative time recorder and an absence is recorded, recalculation is triggered in the system creating a recalculation event for time sheet and a warning message "The displayed data might not be fully up-to-date because a recalculation event is pending for the time sheet" is displayed below the time sheet details area of the Time Sheet UI.


  • After the recalculation event is processed, the time sheet UI shall display the working hours accordingly and warning message should no longer be displayed.

NOTE: The recalculation will immediately if the 'Schedule Immediate Recalculation' is set to Always (In Manage Data -> Time Management Configuration).
