Enhanced Absence Counting Rule with Day-Based Processing in Time Management

Overview of the change

The enhanced absence counting rule allows you to overwrite the default planned working hours derived from the employee's work schedule, temporary time information, holiday calendar, and holiday work pattern.

You can use the absence counting rule to set the deduction quantity or deduction factor for specific weekdays, shift classifications, holiday categories, holiday work patterns or standard weekly hours.

The absence counting rule is day-based, which means it is processed for each absence day that is included in the rule. The deduction quantity for each absence day can be modified using the rule.

We recommend that you use the Absence Counting Configuration to restrict the number of absence days to be included in rule processing. For details, check the help texts for theHoliday Selection, Planned Working Time Selection, and Weekday Selection fields in the Absence Counting Configuration object

Configuration Requirements

To use the enhanced absence counting feature, you must:

  • Create a new configuration object called "Absence Counting Configuration" and assign it to the time type.
  • Configure the absence counting rule according to your business requirements.
  • Enable role-based permissions for the Absence Counting Configuration object.

Role-Based Permission Prerequisites

To use the enhanced absence counting feature, users require permissions for the Absence Counting Configuration object.

What's Changed

How it Looks Now

Use case: An employee’s work schedule is defined as a 5-day working week with Monday to Friday as 8 hours a day and Saturdays as 4 hours a day. If the employee requests leave that includes Saturdays, then 0.5 days should be deducted for Saturday and 1 day should be deducted for the other weekdays.

Here's what the absence counting configuration object looks like for this use case:

In the absence counting rule "If" condition, select "Saturday" as weekday and set the Deduction Factor to 0.5.

Time Recording Profile Visualization

Overview of the change

We've added the new Time Recording Profile Visualization object, which you can use to visualize the time valuations and time type groups included in a time recording profile.

Time recording profiles can contain many time valuations that use many time type groups. In such cases, it can be difficult to understand how these different objects work together. The new Time Recording Profile Visualization object addresses this issue by providing a visual overview of the components of a time recording profile.

We've added this feature to help customers understand complex time recording profiles.

Configuration Requirements

You use this feature by creating a Time Recording Profile Visualization object and specifying which time recording profile you want to visualize.

Role-Based Permission Prerequisites

You have theUserTime Management Object PermissionsTime Recording Profile Visualizationpermission.

What's Changed

How it Looks Now

You can create Time Recording Profile Visualization objects that generate diagrams providing a visual overview of a time recording profile.

Time Type List Filterable

Overview of the change

It's now possible to hide time types from the selection dropdown when recording an absence, working times, or on-call times by assigning a time type filter rule to the corresponding Available Time Type.

This is necessary, for example, for maternity leave, which should not appear as a selection option for male employees.

Configuration Requirements

A time type filter rule must be assigned to the available time type under the time profile.

To assign a time type filter rule to an available time type with classification as an attendance, break, extra, or on-call time type, SAP SuccessFactors Time Tracking needs to be enabled. SAP SuccessFactors Time Tracking is not required for absence time types time tracking.

What's Changed

How it Looks Now

In the current version, the available time types can be restricted based on certain conditions, such as gender.

How it Looked Before

In the previous version, all available time types from a time profile were shown.

REST API to Perform Mass Deletion of Time Events

Overview of the change

You now have a new REST API ClockInClockOutTimeEvents that enables you to perform mass deletion of time events.

The ClockInClockOutTimeEvents is a REST API that supports deletion of time events. You can delete a specific time event or multiple time events using a single API request. For more information, see the Related Information section. This enhancement supports the following scenarios:

  • Correction at a clock time terminal: Deletion of a time event at the terminal helps to fix any incorrect clock time action. For example, an employee enters a clock in instead of a clock out. This can be corrected at the terminal itself.

  • Correction of time punches when determined by an auto-clock. For example, an employee does a clock in at 8 a.m. and after an hour, there’s a clock in event coming in at 7 a.m. because of syncing issues. The correction has to happen from 8 am to 7 am. In this context, the 8 a.m. clock in can be deleted, and the 7 a.m. clock in can be created.

We've made this enhancement as there was no way to perform mass deletion of time events and deleting one time event at a time was very time consuming. Any correction of time events was possible only from the Manage Clock In Clock Out page.

Note

We've added the link to the SAP Business Accelerator Hub for this REST API in the Related Information section.

Configuration Requirements

Enable the Clock In Clock Out feature.

Role-Based Permission Prerequisites

  • To delete the time events created at a terminal, you need the Administrator PermissionsManage Clock In Clock OutDelete Time Events created using Terminal permission.

  • To delete the time events created manually, you need the Administrator PermissionsManage Clock In Clock OutDelete Time Events created manually permission.

  • To delete the time events created through web or mobile, you need the Administrator PermissionsManage Clock In Clock OutDelete Time Events created using Clock Time permission.

What's Changed

In the current version, you can perform mass deletion of time events.

In the previous version, you could delete time events only one at a time.

Enhancements to Clock My Time Quick Action

Overview of the change

The Clock My Time quick action now shows all the supported actions and not just the possible actions.

The dropdown menu inClock Time allows you to select from a wider set of actions. In the web application, you have the More option when you select the dropdown menu on the Clock Time button.

Note

Currently, we don't support this enhancement on the mobile version of the application

If an employee forgot to clock out on a particular day, the following day the employee would only see the option to clock out and not clock in. For example, employee clocked in at 8 a.m. and forgot to clock out at 5 p.m.. The following day, when the employee returns at 7:30 a.m. and tries to clock in, only a clock out option will be visible and not clock in. This is not an ideal user experience. We've enhanced the user experience by allowing users to select from a list that includes all possible actions and not limited to the next logical action.

Configuration Requirements

What's Changed

How it Looks Now

In the current version, you have a More option in the Clock Time menu that displays all possible clock time actions.

How it Looked Before

In the previous version, the More option wasn't available and user could only see the option which was a logical closure to the previous day's last action. For example, if a Clock In was done on the previous day and no Clock Out was done, then the following day the user would see a Clock Out option without any option to Clock In.

Clock My Time Quick Action in Microsoft Teams

Overview of the change

With the integration of SAP SuccessFactors and Microsoft 365, a Clock My Time quick action is available for users to record time events in Microsoft Teams.

In Teams, users can find the quick action from the main menu of the SAP SuccessFactors message extension. They can record various types of time events that are configured in their SAP SuccessFactors system, such as clock in, clock out, and break. The time events recorded in Teams are synchronized to users' SAP SuccessFactors system in real time.

The Recent Activity list shows 6 most recent time events and the corresponding time points. The View Timesheet option takes users to their SAP SuccessFactors system to view timesheet details.

What's Changed

How it Looks Now

We developed this feature to enable users to easily record time events in everyday business social scenarios.

Configuration Requirements

  • You've enabled the SAP SuccessFactors app for Microsoft Teams.
  • You have a Time Tracking license.
  • Clock My Time is enabled in Admin CenterManage Home PageQuick Actions.

Calendar in Time Recording Admissibility

Overview of the change

We've added a possibility to restrict retroactive changes in the time sheet by setting up a calendar in the time recording admissibility.

With the calendar of the time recording admissibility, you can now restrict retroactive changes before a date effective as of another date. For example, you can define that retroactive changes before July 01, 2023 aren’t allowed effective as of July 03, 2023.

We've introduced this functionality to help customers ensure that attendance, break, on-call, and allowance recordings remain unchanged after payroll processing.

Configuration Requirements

To set up a calendar in time recording admissibility, you create a time recording admissibility object, allow amendments, and set the No Changes Allowed Before and Effective as Of dates. You then assign the time recording admissibility for particular users in the People Profile.

What's Changed

How it Looks Now

Users can't change time sheets before the No Changes Allowed Before date set in the time recording admissibility object.

Automatic Time Sheet Submission with Deviations

Overview of the change

We've added a possibility to automatically submit time sheets of positive, negative, and overtime recorders with deviations.

You now define a time sheet submission with a deviation, which means that time sheets are automatically submitted some days before or after the end date of the time sheet. For example, you can decide that your time sheets are submitted one day later.

Configuration Requirements

You set deviations by adding a positive number (later) or a negative number (earlier) to the Deviate Automatic Submission By field in the time recording submission configuration. The time recording submission configuration is part of the time profile.

For example, you want employees to record their breaks in a flexible way and you only want to consider those manually recorded breaks. Therefore, you prevent the generation of breaks.

Configuration Requirements

To prevent break generation, Time Tracking customers set Prevent Generation of Breaks to Scheduled and Dynamic Breaks in the time recording profile.

Calendar-Based Automatic Time Sheet Submission

Overview of the change

We've added a possibility to automatically submit time sheets by setting up a calendar with submission dates.

In the calendar, you can define a submission period and a submission date. On the submission date, time sheets overlapping with the submission period are automatically submitted. Additionally, you can set an approval date that is equal to the submission date. The time sheets overlapping with the submission period then directly change their status fromTo be Submitted to Approved without triggering a workflow.

Employees sometimes forget to submit their time sheets manually. Now, we provide more flexibility in the automatic time sheet submission process to ensure that time sheets are submitted and approved in time, so that employees can be paid correctly and timely.

Configuration Requirements

You set the submission date, the approval date, and the submission period in the time recording calendar. The time recording calendar is assigned to the time recording profile.

Flexible Periods in Time Valuation

Overview of the change

You can now process data from time valuations for a flexible period between 1 and 12 months based on daily time container results from that period.

Let's say you want to store your employees' yearly overtime for reporting purposes. Therefore, you create a time container that stores overtime recorded during a 12-month period starting at the beginning of the year.

Note

Because of the introduction of flexible periods, we've changed the name of the valuation method from Valuate Whole Sheet to Valuate Whole Sheet or Period.

We've introduced flexible periods to support scenarios like yearly overtime that require time data recorded during a configurable period to be processed.

Configuration Requirements

To implement flexible periods in time valuations, Time Tracking customers set up a number of time type groups and time valuations:

  • A time type group used to generate daily time containers.

  • A time valuation with the valuation typeAggregate Input Group and Split that generates daily time containers.
  • A time type group that reads daily time containers.
  • A time type group used to generate the time container for the flexible period.
  • Another time valuation with the valuation type Aggregate Input Group and Split that generates the time container for the flexible period based on the time type group that reads daily time containers. Alternatively, you can also create a time valuation with the valuation type Aggregate Input Group and Split that generates an alert if a certain threshold is exceeded during the specified period.

Role-Based Permission Prerequisites

You have the UserTime Management Object PermissionsTime Container permission.

What's Changed

How it Looks Now

When setting up a time container you can now configure the base unit months, the number of base units, and the reference date, that is, the start of the flexible period.

How it Looked Before

Previously, time containers could only store time data from a single day.

Delta Definitions in the Create Time Record Valuation Type

Overview of the change

When configuring time valuations with the Create Time Record valuation type, you can now define that the start or end time of a time record is a delta time. A delta start time of a time record can be based on a defined end time or a delta end time can be based on a defined start time.

Let's say you want to pay a special premium for overtime recorded within 2 hours before the start of scheduled working time. Therefore, you configure that a time record is created that can be used to deduct recorded working time within 2 hours before the start of the scheduled working time. In the time valuation, you specify that the start of the time record is based on the end of the time record. You then set the offset value to -120 and define that the start of scheduled working time is the end time of the record. When a time record is created, the record is stored in a time type group. You use this time type group as the deduction group of the time valuation that calculates premium pay.

This feature is required for special premium pay scenarios.

Configuration Requirements

To configure time records based on delta definitions, you create a time valuation with the Create Time Record valuation type. If you want to define a delta start time, you set Start Type to Based on End of Time Recordand enter a negative value in the Offset Value in Minutes field. If you want to define a delta end time, you setEnd Type to Based on Start of Time Record and enter a positive value in the Offset Value in Minutes field.

What's Changed

How it Looks Now

When configuring a time valuation with the Create Time Record valuation type, you can now set the start type to a time based on the end of a time record and enter the offset value in minutes. You can also set the end type to a value based on the start of the time record.

How it Looked Before

Previously you could only set the start and end types to a value from a time type group or a fixed clock time value.

Recording Partial Day Absences During Flextime Bandwidth

Overview of the change

It's now possible to record partial day absences that are outside the employee's planned hours, but are still within the flextime bandwidth defined in the employee's work schedule.

This feature provides employees the flexibility to request certain partial day absences during non-core working hours, such as before or after work. These absences could include appointments for vaccination, physiotherapy, routine medical tests, ophthalmologist visits, and other preventive measures.

We've also made improvements to the Team Absence Calendar UI to display the Flextime Bandwidth segment under the planned working time details in the Day view.

Requesting Absence on Non-Working Days for Clock-Time Users

Overview of the change

It is now possible to create single full-day absences on non-working days for clock-time users.

This change supports employees in reporting certain absences like sick leave or disability leave on non-working days or public holidays when they actually occurred. These absences can be counted as a full-day absences using absence counting rules.

Note

On October 20, 2023, we clarified that the requesting quantity is 1 day because a counting rule is linked to the time type, which deducts 1 day for non-working days. We also updated the screenshot of how it works now.

With this enhancement, we introduced a new field in the Employee Time object called Absence Duration Category, which records whether an absence is a "Single Full Day", "Partial Day" or a "Multiple Day" absence. This field is also reportable.

We've also made UI enhancements with respect to the Full Day field on the Time Off UI. The Full Dayfield is set for an absence on a non-working day, but is not editable.

Configuration Requirements

The feature can be enabled for each time type. To do this, set the Requesting on Non-Working Days Allowed field to Yes in the relevant time type.

What's Changed

How it Looks Now

In the current version, clock-time users can request time off on a non-working day if the Requesting on Non-Working Days Allowed setting is enabled in the relevant time type. The requesting quantity is 1 day because a counting rule is linked to the time type which deducts 1 day for non-working days.

How it Looked Before

In the previous version, if a clock-time user requested time off on a non-working day, an error message was raised even if the Requesting on Non-Working Days Allowedsetting was enabled in the relevant time type.

Restricting the Target Population of Time Sheet Alerts

Overview of the change

You can now restrict the target population of time valuation and time collector alerts with additional target criteria to determine which alerts a user role can see on the Time Sheet UI.

Let's say you've configured a time valuation alert for when users are too late and another one for when users have more than 20 hours of overtime. Additionally, you've configured a time collector alert for when users are too late three times. You don't want employees to see these alerts on the Time Sheet UI. Therefore, you set the target population of the alert objects in the employee role so that employees can't see these alerts.

Note

The restricted target population of time valuation and time collector alerts is only respected on the Time Sheet UI.

We've introduced this feature to help customers define who can see which alerts on the Time Sheet UI.

Configuration Requirements

You specify the target population for the time valuation alert and time collector alert objects in the Grant this role to... section in the permission role details. For Time Tracking customers, this functionality is automatically available for all configured permission roles and time valuation as well as time collector alerts.
