2149882 - Time Off Period End Processing: Received an empty csv file after simulation

Symptom

Received an empty csv file after running a PEP simulation.

Environment

SuccessFactors Employee Central-Time OFF.

Reproducing the Issue

Navigate to Admin Center--->Manage time Off Calendars-->choose "Period end processing" as "Change Scenario" .Create new calendar and simulate it

Go to Monitor job-->Download the simulated file.File is empty .

Cause

  • Booking end date not falling in calendar period

Resolution

Criteria for picking an account for pep simulation

  • Booking end date must fall in calendar period

For example:

I have a 2016 Vacation account with below details

  • Start date               01/01/2016 
  • Bookable until date  31/03/2017

Make sure that the bookable untill date is falling in between the pep calendar start date and end date.

Here the bookable until date is 31/3/2017

This date should be within pep calendar start and end date

  • Pep calendar start date 31/12/2016 and end date 31/5/2017:  Correct---31/3/2017 is falling between pep calendar start and end date
  • Pep calendar start date 01/01/2016 and end date 31/12/2016: Wrong ---31/3/2017 is not falling between pep calendar start and end date,hence 2016 accounts will not be considered for this run.
