  • If this instantaneous processing, needs to be stopped, enable the field 'disableInstantImport' in the Time Management Configuration object and set the value to 'Yes'.




  1. This will only disable the instant import, the external time data will still be processed by the daily Time Sheet import job (In Provisioning).
  2. Disabling the instant import should be done only if there are issues in event processing(or for troubleshooting). By default the value of the field 'Disable instant Import Of Time Sheet Data' should be 'No'.
