3247095 - Creating a Broadcast for Last Day of Month

Symptom

Creating a Broadcast with the last day of month as 31 generates an error.

Environment

SAP Cloud For Customer

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Analytics
  2. Go to Broadcasts --> New
  3. Create the Broadcast and choose the option Periodically. 
  4. Frequency --> Month
  5. Day of Month --> 31
  6. Click on save.
  7. You will see the error "Scheduling start date does not match day of month"

Cause

It is not currently possible to set a broadcast to the last day of the month as certain months have 31 days and others have 30.

Resolution

We suggest to create a Broadcast for the first day of each month to bypass this error message.

We would also suggest to open a new feature request in the Influence Forum to add relative selections to Broadcasts.

You can register this requirement on the ideas forum: https://influence.sap.com/sap/ino/#/campaign/903

Please note you will only see this error when creating a broadcast in a month with only 30 days and using the Day of Month as 31.
