3283034 - Time type [Time Type name] is not assigned for [Employee] on [Date]


  • You are trying to edit an Absence record for an employee. However, the message 'Time type [Time Type name] is not assigned for [Employee] on [Date]' is being thrown;
  • Employee status in the Job Information portlet has the value of a Leave of Absence Event Reason - i.e. 'Employee Status Unpaid Leave', even though he's set as 'Active' in the UDF.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access affected employee;
  2. Go to Time Off > Administer Time > Absences;
  3. Try to edit an Absence record;
  4. Observe the behavior.


Time Profile gathers information of data as of today - meaning that, if changes have been made to the Time Profile (including an alteration in Time Type) - i.e. external code value was 'LeaveType' when the record was created, and it was updated to 'LeaveTy' - the error will be thrown.


You will need to delete all of the leave records that you've observed this behavior and add them again through the Time Off UI (Administer Time > Absences) - correcting the information as per your business requirement. That way, the error will cease to being thrown and you'll have the updated information, as well as the correct status of the employee in the Job Information records.
