Fusion Time and Labor: OTL Integration To Projects: Transaction Source Or Document Type/Entity

(Doc ID 2231151.1)

Last updated on APRIL 30, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Time and Labor - Version 11.1.11.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

It is possible to configure OTL in the way that a project time card can be interface to Projects via a separate Transaction Source or, if the only one available is Oracle Fusion Time and Labor, through a separate document entity in Projects?
The requirement is to enter distinct time sheets that need to be treated separately (i.e. not calculate costs or account for them, just load the hours), is this possible through standard functionality?

Imagine I have 2 types of time cards I need to load:
1. Generic technical staff which genuinely need to record time spent working on projects. Such time cards are subject to regular Projects treatment. Costs will be calculated per setup.
2. Research projects are governed in a very specific way: there is an allowance of time that can be booked against a project to be compensated at agreed rate, anything above agreed hours is to be tracked separately and shall be compensated at a reduced rate. This policy is there to discourage overspending.
The idea is to treat step 2 time cards separately and NOT calculate costs or account for such time cards when they are interfaced to Projects. Currently there is a document entity defined for Oracle Fusion Time and Labor transaction source that WILL calculate costs and account for them which means time sheets need to be recorded separately, via separate Transaction Source or separate document entity within the same transaction source. I am not aware of any capability to associate a time card layout/rule with a transaction source/document entity.
