2951857 - Cost Rate determination sequence for timesheet entry


When posting timesheet on WBS Element, it's not clear how the cost rate was determined.



Reproducing the Issue

Enter timesheet and check the cost rate used.


The cost rate determination is explained in the help portal.


Please read the detail in the documentation for the sequence determination of cost rate.

Potentially, there is known cause for wrong cost rate determination:

If you want to determine the cost rate basing on Service Cost Level, however if the service cost level is not in valid period, the system can't consider the same.
You can check from app Employee by input the relevant employee ID. In the Controlling Information area, you can verify the validity of the Service Cost Level for the employee.
