Not allow in CAT2 enter hours in weekends and holidays - (Cal. ID is not the same as in the plant)

Hello experts!

We have been required to implement CATS but it is needed only a basic configuration. This company is not using HR module, so we have configured in HR module the mínimum required to create an employee with the purposes of be used for Time sheet entry hours and transfer to controlling.

First of all, I would like to emphasis that I am not an expert in CATS and I don't know anything about HR module.

The requirement of the customer is to not allow the entry of hours on weekends and public holidays.

We see that in the data entry profile configuration it can be activated the option ¨Working days only¨, but this option is working only if in the IT 0315 is assigned the plant (I understand the plant is linked to an specific factory calendar. This is defined in OP03).

If we assign the plant to the employee in IT 0315, when we enter into transaction CAT2, in the time sheet view the weekends and holidays are displayed in grey and doesn't allow to enter hours those days.

The issue is that the calendar ID for the employees that will enter the hours into CATS doesn't have the same plant calendar ID, so in the IT 0315 we remove the plant.

During the configuration, it have been assigned the correct calendar ID in:

- Table V_001P_M - Calendar ID assignment to personnel area and subarea.

- Table V_T508A - Work Schedule rule

With transaction PA40 - It has been created the personnel with the minumum master data records that we considered are required for enter hours in CATS (We use to create the employee number with the personnel actions option - Time recording (mini master)).

The personnel master data created are Infotypes: 0002-Personal Data, 0001-Organizational Assignment, 0007-Planned working time and 0315-Time sheet defaults.

In the IT 0007 has been assigned the work Schedule rule for the employee.

Even the employee have assigned the corresponding Calendar ID, when the transaction CAT2 is executed, in the time sheet view is not displaying weekends and holidays as blocked in grey (like when is assigned the plant in IT 0315). Unlike it is displaye all the days ready to be input an entry (even weekends).

How can be restricted in CAT2 to display in grey and block entries in weekends and public holidays to the employee?

Are we missing a customizing in HR or CATS? Take into account that should be minimal the master data creation in HR because we are not interested to complicate HR configuration module (is only a few quantity of employees that will use CATS).

Can be used a function, user exit, etc?

If i am missing any detail, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Best regards
