FORM:HXCTKSTA.FMB - Timekeeper Entry

Symptoms

You are using a Projects only setup with seeded layout.

- Timekeeper Layout Attributes preference is set to:

  Timekeeper Layout Item 1: TK Projects List
  Timekeeper Layout Item 2: TK Tasks List
  Timekeeper Layout Item 3: TK Expenditure List
  Timekeeper Layout Item 4: XXHXC_KG_TEST

- Timekeeper Misc Setup Items preference is set to:

  Display In / Out Time Entries: No
  Display Person Name; Yes
  Display Person Number: No
  Attribute Item Name for Detail Information: timekeeper Layout Item 3
  Descriptive Felxfield to Display: Project


The Expenditure Items descriptive flexfield has reference field set to SYSTEM_LINKAGE_FUNCTION and the 'OT' context has a segment called 'Payroll Allowance'.

In Self Service, enter a timecard with a type value that has system linkage function of 'OT'.  Navigate to Additional Details page and enter some text in the 'Payroll Allowance' field.  Apply changes. Save the timecard.  When you query back this timecard in Timekeeper, you'll find the value entered in 'Payroll Allowance' field cannot be retrieved back. Same problem when retrieving a timecard that is entered via Timekeeper, in self service.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect when the timecard is retrieved, the entered 'Payroll allowance' value should be displayed as entered, regardless of how it was entered.

STEPS
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Log into Self service Time responsibility
2. Enter a timecard with a 'Type' value that has SYSTEM LINKAGE FUNCTION of 'OT'.
3. Click on 'Additional Details' button and enter some text in the 'Payroll Allowance' field. Hit 'Apply'.
4. Save the timecard.
5. Log into Timekeeper responsibility
6. Navigate to Timekeeper Entry
7. Query back the timecard just entered and check the 'Payroll Allowance' field.
