2803123 - Employee Time displayQuantity is blank - Advanced Reporting


  • The Employee Time displayQuantity field is blank in Advanced Reporting on Canvas Reports
  • Is it possible to report on displayQuantity field in Advanced Reporting


  • SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
    • Report - Canvas : Advanced reporting


The displayQuantity field can not directly be reported because it is a transient field.

As there is no unique way to configure this field, there is no standard calculated column to display this information in Advanced Reporting.

There can be a difference between quantityInDays/quantityInHours and deductionQuantity, but in most scenarios EmployeeTime-DeductionQuantity is equal to EmployeeTime-QuantityInDays (if the time type unit is in Days) or equal to EmployeeTime-QuantityInHours (if the time type unit is in Hours).

If we assign an Absence Counting Method to the time type, that quantity can vary. So for customers using an absence counting method, it typically makes sense to use that one as TimeType-DisplayQuantity as well, but customers are free to display another value. Example: 1 week absence with Saturday and Sunday defined as non working days; according to the absence counting method, Saturday is deducted from the time account as well -> typically employees prefer to see 6 days (as that the quantity deducted from the time account) instead of 5 days (working day quantity).

The displayQuantity field can be configurable to show either the quantityInDays/quantityInHours or the deductionQuantity. Therefore, from reporting perspective, its not possible to create a calculated column and the field will be blank as expected in the reports.
