In what order are the time types and time account types sorted in the balance overview screen? Can the order be changed by the customer?

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.


  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central : Time Off

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Proxy as an employee.
  2. Navigate to time off ESS UI.
  3. Click on 'Show All' under balances to view the balance overview screen:

  4. Click on 'Account View', to get the balances for the different time account types:


  • Time types are sorted in the order in which they are configured in the time profile, with the favorite time types coming on top.
  • Time Account types are alphabetically ordered as per the external name, hence, their order may change as the language changes.
  • Note: In Chinese languages (Traditional and Simplified Chinese), the time account types do not appear in any specific order. This is currently a system limitation.
