ESS Leave request


We have scenario where ESS leave request allows to enter more than 8 hours of PTO for same day and this adds up and pays out. For eg:

1) Emp enters 8 hours of PTO for July 19.

2) Next day emp enters 8 hours of PTO "again" for July 19

So here ESS pushes 16hours to IT 2001 with two records and Time evaluation processes it as 16 hours and is paid for 16 in payroll.

Is there any check in ESS to,

1. restrict entry of 8 hours second time if user forgets

2. check and alert user to note that there is already 8 hours for the same day

We agree that we can write rules in TIME/PCR to restrict the hours based on employee groups. However we are trying to check if there were any standard SAP things around these limitations

    You can write the logic in TIME EXITS which can be called in the ESS leave request BAD ie PT_ABS_REQ

      No. I tried in ESS after activating collision check, but it doesn't check. It only checks if time evaluation is processed while the collision check config is in place.

      If collision check is active and if time eval is not processed for that day, ESS allows to enter absences multiple times for a single given day
