3194200 - Recurring time account year display logic


In Administer time -> Time Accounts section, recurring time accounts have a year as a suffix to the time account type name. Some time accounts have the same year as the suffix. How is this year identified and can it be changed?

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

  • Navigate to Administer Time -> Time Accounts for an employee
  • Recurring time accounts have year as suffix, and multiple time accounts for the same time account type can have the same year :


  • The year is decided based on the Time Account Validity Start Date. So, if the start date falls in 2022, the year will be 2022


  • This is currently the standard behavior and the year cannot be changed
  • Please raise an enhancement request if a different logic is need for year: 2090228
