In a compensation or variable pay worksheet you enter a recommendation in a field and go to another application and values do not autocalculate. However when you tab to another field or click another field it autocalculates the referenced fields.
When you are entering recommendations in a worksheet either tab to the next field or go to the next field before you go to another application. It'll calculate after you save either way but it'll provide a consistent experience.
