3227041 - Overtime hours for weekends is calculated wrong in Time Sheet


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

  • Overtime hours for weekends is calculated wrong
  • User has worked on Sunday from 8:30 to 18:30 i.e. actual Overtime 10 hours but system shows only 1 hour as Overtime 
  • Scheduled Unpaid Break is reduced from working hours during weekend Time sheet entry recording 


  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central
  • Successfactors - Employee Central Time Sheet

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Click on record time > go to time sheet period for Non-Working Day
  2. Record Overtime for duration of 10 hours or 8:30 am  to 6:30 pm 
  3. Time Sheet displays Overtime only as 1 hour


  •  Scheduled Unpaid Break defined for 9 hours for a Non Working Day i.e.Off Day ( Work Schedule Day Model)
  • Non-Working Day = No indicates this day as a Working Day. The work schedule day model has Non-Working Day = No, it tells the system that the given day is a working day.
  • Further there would even be error raised for the OFF day model saved without any change at all, because this Non-Working Day = No day model is not having any scheduled working time.
    OFF is a working day work schedule day model because its Non-Working Day is No. 
  • In the work schedule day model, it has been scheduled with unpaid break, so the relevant time slot is unpaid break.
  • The enhancement only changes the behaviour for work schedule / work schedule day model for non-working days.


  1. For working days, it has always been the behaviour that the scheduled unpaid break will be defaulted in Time Sheet UI when recording working time.
  2. If all the hours recorded to be considered as working hours to be paid, configuration in the OFF work schedule day model need to be adjusted so that 08:30-17:30 is not Scheduled Unpaid Break anymore.
