Symptoms

Time Entry Rule can be bypassed by Saving for Later.

A Time Entry Rule exists that is designed to cause an 'Error' when an employee enters time to a Vacation element that is greater than the number of hours he has accrued in his associated Vacation PTO Plan.

The Time Entry Rule uses the seeded Fast Formula (PTO Accrual Balance vs Absence ( Seeded formula)) as well as a Mapping appropriate for Payroll Layout.
When the employee enters more Vacation hours than he has accrued, and clicks 'Review', the rule
fires.

However, even when the rule is violated, he can 'Save for Later'. When he goes back into the same timecard, he can 'Review' and 'Submit' the timecard without error, so the Time Entry Rule is bypassed.
