3245626 - Time Sheet recalculation after absence cancellation not populating time for negative time recording


Time Sheet recalculation when an absence is cancelled, is not triggered correctly causing the affected day to not have working hours populated


  • SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting 2205

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Cancel an absence
  2. Recalculation is triggered
  3. When using negative time recording, the working times are not populate automatically.


Coding issue

When the cancellation workflow for an absence is created, a recalculation is triggered. As the status pending cancellation is still active from time sheet sight, the absence is still valid in the time sheet and no data is generated.
On final approve of the cancellation workflow, there isn't another recalculation trigger. Hence, the time sheet is not touched anymore and the day stays empty.


To correct this, you need to create a manual recalculation event for "time sheet recalculation" and a date within the erroneous time sheet.

We are also working on a coding fix for this.
