How to import timesheet data with start and end times in Successfactors EC

Hi friends

Request for your help in finding out a way to import start and end times into a timesheet in Successfactors EC. We have tried importing the data using externalsegment template and was successful when we have given the duration as 9 or 8 hours. But, facing some challenges to upload “start” and “end” times. Can you please let me know which template has to be used for start and end time upload and how?

Thank you so much in advance

Vijay

    Hi Vijay,

    unfortunately this is not possible at all. The import is currently limited to duration and to 1 default time type. There are of course plans to enhance this import with start / end times and especially to provide a proper clock in / out integration (something like in ERP the HRPDC interface), but this is only planned feature, not yet available.

    Why is the restriction regarding duration based import only?

    Mainly due to the fact of break handling / automated break deduction in EC in combination with upload start / end times and even maybe external recorded break times. It was simply not possible to cover the full scenario to upload times with start / end times, provide probably even the possibilty to upload different time types (working time, breaks) and to mix it with any existing break handling in the time sheet / time valuation when the times don´t get uploaded but recorded within a release. This is why the import is first restricted to duration. I hope we find the time soon to enhance it.

    Regards

    Volker

    • Hello Balint,

      we are working on it, but we can´t give an date when an upload -either with API or MDF Import- of external time data with start / end time will be possible.
