  14. System throws the mentioned error


There is an inconsistency with Time Recording and therefore, the system throws the error. That is, the Service Product on Sales Order contains a Unit of Measure of other than Time units, example: each, box, etc.


For time recordings, the system expects the unit in Time or Duration. Use a Service Product that contains a Time unit of measure or change the existing Service Product to have a Time unit of measure if applicable.
