3028742 - Requesting the deletion of time sheet entries to SAP


The User has made time sheet entries which are not yet approved in the system, the User would like to request SAP to mass delete these entries.




The deletion of these entries from SAP directly through the backend is a complex topic. It is necessary to check carefully the entries that will be deleted and follow a strict process in order to ensure consistency. Hence, if possible, the best option is the customer making the deletion through an API, or manually on the front end.


There are two main scenarios with different recommendations:

  1. Scenario 1 - Employees of the entries are still active: The recommendation in this case is to delete these entries through the API (API_MANAGE_WORKFORCE_TIMESHEET) or manually on the front end (through app Manage my Timesheet app) to ensure consistency.
  2. Scenario 2 - Employee is inactive: The recommendation is to use app ‘Notify Missing Times’ to update the inactive employee’s timesheet within 60 days of employment termination.
    Note : Only Internal Employee’s are supported as of now & contingent worker’s data can not be updated via this app.
