2557428 - Changing a Users Job Information Field Does not Trigger a Recalculation


On changing a users job information field such as Working Days Per Week (triggered by a change to the work schedule), from 5 days to 3 days a week, no recalculation is triggered.


1. Recalculation is enabled in the Time Management Configuration object.

If a field like "Working Days Per Week" should trigger a recalculation, you have to add it the recalculation relevant fields for the time account type.
Using the Time Management Configuration feature is not actually needed in this scenario, you can observe the same issue without using that feature.

  • If Recalculation is active (and the field is recalculation relevant), a recalculation event created that triggers the recalculation.
  • If not active (and the field is recalculation relevant), synchronous accrual recalculation is triggered.

2. The accrual posting has an accrual period ID, and should therefore be picked up on the recalculation.
