2788894 - Old Time Off Requests are not Visible for Employees - ESS


Old Time Off absence requests (over a year old) are not visible for employees but are visible for Admins.


Employee Central - Time-Off

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Proxy as an employee
  2. Navigate to this employees Time Off
  3. Absence requests from 2 years ago are not visible


This is expected system behaviour. The ESS page displays absences from the current year and the previous year. For example, in 2019, only absences from 2019 and 2018 should be displayed.


Admin users can view the older absences through MSS without issue.
