3251607 - Time type with attendance Classification for working Time Account


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

  • Unable to add Time Account type for working time account for Time profile
  • Time type with classification as attendance gives error when trying to add the Time account as below:-
    There is no available time type in the time profile that references the time account type you have specified.To ensure correct posting of working hours to a time account, a time type must be assigned in the time profile that has the same time account type maintained under attribute 'Time Account Posting Rules' as the time account type you specify in the field 'Time Account Type for Working Time Account'.

  • SAP SuccessFactors Timesheet

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Data and select Time Profile
  2. Take Action--> Make correction 
  3. Assign Time Account Type for Working Time Account, which has classification as attendance

  4. Click on Save 


  • This cannot be possible for an attendance time Type classification, as Time Account Posting Rules get derived only for an absence time Type classification .


  1. There has to be a Time Type which is in the list of Available Time Types and which has the 'Time Account Type for Working Time Account' as Time Account Type. This always has to be an Absence Time Type.
  2. It is not possible for Attendance Time Types because they cannot have any Time Account Type per definition.

Refer the attachment WorkingTimeAccount_Configuration.docx as an example 

Here, the 'Time Account Type for Working Time Account' is 'Flextime Account (WTA)'. The Time Type 'Working Time Reduction (Hours)' has exactly this Time Account Type. Time Type 'Working Time Reduction (Hours)' is also added to the Available Time Types.
