2842081 - Mandatory Field check on Individual Work schedule object also affecting the Temporary Work Schedule


  • On the Work Schedule object, the fields Average Hours per Day, Week, etc. are marked as 'required' / 'mandatory' fields to ensure the users complete these fields while creating Individual Work Schedules.
  • However, because of this a Temporary Work Schedule can now not be created.  The reason for this is that the fields Average Hours per Day, Week, etc.(which are marked mandatory on the Object) are not displayed as an option to fill in.
  • When attempting to create one and save,  the system displays an error message indicating the Average Hours per Day, Week, etc. fields are required fields and that it should be completed.

  • Please raise an enhancement request if you would like to see a feature that allows you to set the fields and mandatory on the Work schedule object but are exempt to the Temporary Work Schedule.
