2994112 - Cross Midnight Work Schedule Error

Symptom

We have configured cross midnight functionality in work schedules post H2 2020 and we are facing the error as "you can only assign a cross midnight work schedule to employees who record absence only or to employees without a time recording profile" when assigning the cross midnight work schedule to the employee job information.

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central -  Time Off

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central -  Job Information

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Naviagte to user profile >Action>Change Job and Compensation Info
  2. Update the Work Schedule field with Cross Midnight Workschedule
  3. System throws an error "you can only assign a cross midnight work schedule to employees who record absence only or to employees without a time recording profile"

Cause

Cross Midnight work schedule is currently not supported for Time Sheet hence you cannot assign the cross midnight work schedule to the employees with Time Recording Profile. 

Note: Cross Midnight work schedule can be used for customers using Time Tracking product. Time Tracking is only available for customers who are early adopter to this feature, its not generally available to all customers. Please refer to our What's New Viewer.
