3013433 - Temporary Work Schedule - Unable to Select February Dates from Calendar UI for Certain Locales


For some locales, it is not possible to select a date in Feb while creating a temporary work schedule, via calendar pop up on workbench > Work Schedule tab

Example of affected locales:

  • English UK
  • Polish
  • French
  • Spanish


Employee Central, Time Off

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Users Workbench (Administer Time) while using one of the affected locales
  2. Open work schedule tab
  3. Select "Create Temporary Change"
  4. Select date from calendar icon "Start Date - End Date" > try to select any date in Feb and nothing happens
  5. For other months, dates are selectable


Known b2011 bug


Engineering have determined the root cause of the problem is an error in the SAPUI5 control "DateRangeSelection". However, this error only occurs for specific locales, and only when the end date is in February 2021. The error has been corrected with the b2105 release where the new SAPUI5 versionis available.

Workaround: Manually type in the date as per format of other months.

For example, in English UK, manually type in for example "8 Feb 2021 - 10 Feb 2021"  & it will pick it up.

Alternatively, if using English UK and you have also maintained translation for English US - if you switch to English "US" Locale the issue does not occur.
