How To Stop Duplicate Overlap of Time Entries

Received Response


Customer would like to prevent duplicate or overlapping entries of time on the same day at the point of time entry. It should prevent submission for approval if overlap exist.

Content (required):

I am testing for overlap of time entries in the time card, that if an employee enters an entry as below:

Monday Overtime 09:00 to 11:00

Monday Overtime 09:00 to 10:00

It should flag up a duplicate / overlap of entries and prevent submission of the time card for approval.

I have utilised the GSE_DUP_OVRLP_TE_AP formula and 'Duplicate or Overlapping Time Entry' Time Entry Rule template to test this and while it shows the error message, it does not prevent the submission of the time card for approval. I would like it not to permit submission until the user has rectified the record. Below is sample code from the formula, but there is nothing in there that helps stop the submission...

Howdy, Stranger!
