We’ve broken down the major 2H 2023 SAP® SuccessFactors® updates to help you easily digest the latest changes. In this post, we’ll look at what’s new in Time Tracking.

REST API to Perform Mass Deletion of Time Events

Previously, there was no way to mass delete Time Events in Time Tracking. This is now available through API calls using the ClockInClockOutTimeEvents.

You’ll find this helpful for system cleanup and testing.

Automatic Time Sheet Submissions

With Deviations

You can define a specific number of days before or after the end of the timesheet for timesheets to be automatically submitted.

Rule-Based Configurable for Positive Recorders

SAP added the possibility to automatically submit time sheets of positive recorders when specific criteria are fulfilled. You can now define criteria for when timesheets are submitted automatically with a time sheet submission rule.

For example, If the timesheet only has imported entries, you can configure it to submit automatically.

Calendar Based:

You can now automatically submit timesheets by setting up a calendar with submission dates. Use the Time Recording Calendar – Monthly Submission Calendar object.

Clock In/Clock Out – Instance Refresh

Previously, if you had Clock Time enabled, you couldn’t implement an instance refresh through the self-service tool (Instance Refresh Tool). You can do this now using the tool, and it enables you to do a self-service refresh rather than having to submit an SAP Ticket.

Delta Definitions in the Create Time Record

You can now define a Time Record’s start and end time using a Start/End Time or via a delta end time based on the defined start time when creating a Time Valuation.

For Example, If you want to define a delta end time, you can set the End Type to be Based on the Start of Time Record and enter a value in the Offset field.
