How to Select International Time Model for Pre Localized Countries

Hi,

I want to create a new time model for UAE client. I want to create time model, apply leaves, record actual days worked etc. Kindly give me a suggestion to handle this.

I could see a blog related to my search but just wanted to know is there any option without doing the work around mentioned in the blog

2459185 - How to Select International Time Model for Pre Localized Countries

The functionality will be available in one of the future releases of Business ByDesign.

You can use the below two immediate workarounds until the functionality is available

1. Hire Dummy employees to a non-related supported country (e.g: Brazil, Colombia, etc), that correspond to the Pre-localized employees, so that the time recording against projects can be done by them.

Your reports might show that there are double the number of employees which are present in the Pre-localized countries. It can be filtered out using the country, it just means that when personnel events like a Transfer/Termination happens for these employees, the same has to be done for their Dummy counterparts, so that the cost posting for projects is not adversely affected.

2. Remove the Pre-localized country from scope. International Time Types and Time Accounts are allowed only for countries that are not scoped in the system. So, removing Pre-localized country from your project you will be able to use International Time Types.

The other contents present in Pre-localized country scoping like taxes, forms etc will be gone.

    Hello Sredevi,

    We also have scoped the UAE - pre localized version in the system. with the current version (1902) or may be version before as well, We are able to create the time model, time types and time accounts (for leaves, working time etc) in the system.

    Please check activities.

    Time Types - International

    Time Accounts - International

    Let me know if you need any additional details.

    KBA article which you referred, is for SAP BUSINESS BYDESIGN 1705 ; SAP Business ByDesign 1702, so I doubt its not valid anymore.
