2953573 - Accounting Period Closed On DD.MM.YYYY When Releasing Times for Service Agents, Even Though Process Control Is Open


You have the requirement that service agents should be allowed to record time in a closed period, but the posting should go to an open period. The solution for this issue is to open the set process control for time confirmations for the closed month and allow entries until the end of the open month. This will generate an unposted source document that can be posted in the open period. But now an error occurred when releasing times for Service agents. Error: 0 of XXX time(s) released successfully. Accounting period closed on DD.MM.YYYY; contact accounting department (where XXX is the number of time recordings).
