The validity period of a data record can be determined in the initial screen for time data or master data.

If you activate the End date obligatory field, you must
specify the end date of an attendance or absence record in create and copy mode.


Certain attendance and absence data has a great influence on the further processing of employee data. An incorrect validity period, for example, can have far-reaching consequences.

The validity period is usually generated automatically for SAP infotypes. If you activate this field, you ensure that validity periods are always modified accordingly. The administrator must enter the end date of the attendance or absence record on the Time data or master data menu.

If the field is not activated, the values are taken from the Infotypes view (V_T582A).
