Human Resources Management

Time and Labor Management

  • Employee replication via Employee Central Query takes employees and managers from Employee Central and processes them simultaneously. Also, if a manager was already pending for processing, the system allowed duplicate requests of managers to remain.

If yes, then duplication of requests for that manager is prevented. Also, if there is any change in the data for that manager, the request is still allowed to remain. (Hotfix ID: 1000011107)

This issue has now been fixed. (Hotfix ID: 1000010905. This fix has already been delivered as a patch.)
