    Title:
    Override Employee Department on Time card entry
    Content:

    Hi,

    We have a requirement to have a single Expenditure Organization for all Projects. Because of that, we will not derive the Project Expenditure Organization from a Department.

    However, when entering time against the projects, the user cannot save/submit it, because the system is considering the Department as the PEO, therefore, the error message: The project expenditure organization is not active.

    Is there anyway we can override the employee department or default the PEO at the Time entry?

     

    Cheers, Luiz

    Unfortunately no.. At this time, when entering time in Time and Labor, the department is mapped directly as the Expenditure Organization, and therefore the departments must also be defined as Project Expenditure Organizations (PEO).  There currently is no way to change this behavior.

        As an FYI, an enhancement request (27534880) has already been opened for Time and Labor Cloud to support flexibility in entering/deriving the Project Expenditure Organization.  This ER is currently not planned for a specific release.

        Thanks a lot Dustin! I found the ER after posting the question, but was just waiting to see if someone has found a different way! Fair enough!
