Applying leave for a future date when payroll area is locked


When the payroll area is locked,an error Payrollarea locked is displayed if leaves are applied for the past and present dates.

However the leaves applied for a date in future are allowed and updated in the backend correctly.

But for few users in a country, while trying to apply leave through ESS when the payroll area is locked, it does not allow to apply leave for a future date(error: Due to monthly payroll process no changes are currently allowed). There is no such for all other users.

Any idea if any config needs to be checked to solve this issue.Please let me know.

    Hi Kalyan,

    As far as my knowledge, during the payroll locked period all the users will be locked. Hence, there will not arise a situation whether it would allow a user to apply for leave and other user cannot apply for leave during that period. However, there is a chance that the user who is able to apply for leave during payroll lock period could be that his user id must have not been locked on R/3.

    Follow below thread for a such scenario.

    Hope it helps.
