2847098 - Not Able To Add An Absence While Amending Time Sheet


While amending Time Sheet, employee is not able to remove an attendance and replace it by an absence.


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - Time Sheet

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to any Employee's time sheet.
  2. Click in make amendment.
  3. Delete one attendance that was already recorded and approved.
  4. Try to Add an Absence and you are not able to do so.


  • The Absence and Time Sheets are recorded in different objects.
  • While Time Sheets are recorded on Employee Time Sheet Object, the Absences are recorded on Employee Time object.
  • This means that to be able to send an Employee Time Object to one specific date you must not have any attendance on that same day.

How to process in this scenario?

  1. Go to Employee's time sheet and click in make amendment.
  2. Remove the attendances for the day you desire.
  3. Submit and Approve the time sheet amendment.
  4. Go back to time sheet UI for this employee and add the absence.
