Symptom

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the Time Administration work center, in the Regular Tasks view, under Time Valuations, click Run Day Closure for One Employee.
  2. Specify the Employee ABC.
  3. Select the action Select Start Time Valuation
  4. Click Run to specify the valuation start date.

Note:

  • You can select the Backdated Labor Resource Changes checkbox to include backdated changes to assignments to a labor resource for the valuation run.
  • Please verify whether the assigned cost center has the valid labor resource created.
