BMXAA2641E - You Cannot Enter Actual Labor With Future Dates and Times

Question & Answer


Question

Is it possible to enter labor hours in the future?

Cause

When entering 'Labor Hours" that are in the future on a work order, you receive the above message.

Answer

There is a setting within Maximo 7X where this can be set to allow dates to be entered in the future.

Go to Administration> Organizations application.

Select the Organization you want this to be allowed in.

From the "Select Action" menu, select "Labor Options".

Update the "Future Labor Transaction Tolerance in Hours":




Click OK.

Now you can enter dates in the future within the work order on the Actuals tab.

Note: There are 24 hours in a day, multiply 24 by the amount of days ahead you want to allow users to be able to enter future dates.


Example:

To enter dates in the future up to 10 days you will set your "Future Labor Transaction Tolerance in Hours" to 240:00 hours.
