I activated this config setting:
PM->Master Data->Basic Settings->Activate Time Zone Support for Application Areas
for both: Master Data & Workorder Cycle
The notification shows correct times (creation date/time, etc). The work order however, does not show the local time, it still reverts back to system time (which is different than local time). This setting is supposed to go by Local time. Personal settings in SU3 are in the local time zone as well.
Does anyone know what might be the cause and/or how to fix?
Not all time fields are supported with this enhancement, this includes work start/end times. See the [support page|http://help.sap.com/erp2005_ehp_04/helpdata/en/42/b5fe9e11cf4960b91384aafe3cfc86/frameset.htm]:
Time zone support isnot provided in the following areas. This means that the times are not displayed as they are saved in the database.
● Action log
● Change documents
● Change documents for status
● Print of shop papers in SAPscript format
● Plant maintenance work centers
● Archive data
● Plant maintenance information system
● Cost reports
● Multilevel lists of orders
Since time zone support is not provided in plant maintenance work centers, you must use the system time for the work start time and work end time.
