Successfactors - Employee Central Time off

Reproducing the Issue

  •  Time Account Type is configured with Entitlement Method as ‘Entitled as Transferred’
  •  The Initial Transfer Date rule is also configured to set the next transfer date as Long Service Leave Anniversary(Field in Employment details portlet)
  •  The employee is hired as of 29th Aug 2018 with Long Service Leave Anniversary as 29th Aug 2018.
  •  But the Next transfer date is no getting updated in the ‘Time Account Type Accrual Transfer’ object.
  •  The rule execution doesn’t identify the scenario as Hire as it is setting to false.


This is reproducuble in the 1808 preview instances.


  • The engineering team has confirmed that it is a defect which they are fixing in the 1811 release.
  • 1811 release for preview is on 3rd Nov 2018 and other instances on 1st Dec 2018.
  • Till it is fixed, the workaround is to set the 'Initial Transfer Date Rule' as always true.(i.e do not add the IF condition in the rule)
