2455646 - Update Return from Leave of Absence


  • User is trying to configure a way to update the Leave Of Absence automatically. Currently the user needs to update the "Actual return date" manually in the record when the employee returns from vacation or sick leave for instance.


  • Employee Central - Time Off/Leave of Absence


  • Currently this is working by design. Leave Of Absence is generally used for long leaves where you would like the employee's status to change to inactive. For making status active again, employee has to return to work by entering actual end date.
  • Two records are inserted in the job history. One when employee goes on leave his status becomes inactive. Second record is inserted only when employee comes back from the leave and actual return date is entered either by employee or admin. This makes employee active again and return to   work (job and position). Therefore, manual change is required, and it cannot be automated. Expected return date is the only date which you can enter for LOA, Actual return date will appear only once the LOA is approved, it won't appear while you are requesting for leave.

  • There is no automation that triggers this event reason.  Instead the field Actual Return Date should be edited while requesting the  LOA, once the actual return date is entered the job info is adjusted too.
