Oracle Time and Labor - Version 11.5.10.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 11.5.10.2 version,
Timekeeper and Self Service does not have the same behavior with the same "Future Number of Days" value.

Example:
OTL preference "Self Service Timecard Status that Allows User " is linked to all people. The values for this preference is setup as follows:

  Status Allowing edits: Retro
  Future Time Period Limit: Assignment up to Final Termination
  Past Number of Days: 42
  Future Number of Days: 50

Go into Timekeeper and you will be able to update the timecard for the day ending on the 42nd day.  In Self Service, user will find the timecard on the week ending the 42nd day is grayed out.

Since both Timekeeper and Self Service falls under the same preference setting, you would expect the same behavior in both.
