SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - Time Off

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Have a mandatory custom field in Employee Time object definition.
  2. For one of the time types, allow requesting in full days.
  3. The requesting field is not editable until the mandatory custom field is filled.


  • This has been enhanced in 2H 2023 release.
  • The requesting field is now editable even before all the mandatory fields are filled.
