2238847 - Time off Account creation not getting generated automatically for future date hires


When trying to get the new hires created via import into the system.
Job information import along with the time off data, we expect that the time accounts be generated automatically.

You might observe that the Time acccounts are getting generated selectively.



Employee Central



Reproducing the Issue

If you hire an employee within the current accrual period (hire date), the hire accrual is created automatically during hire.
If you hire an employee not in the current accrual period - for example, for next year - no hire accrual is created during hire.
The accrual is created during Time Account Change Calendar execution when you trigger the creation of all accruals for the next year for all employees using Manage time off calendar.
(Time Off Handbook page 60)


What happens to the time account next year /new year? Will the system automatically accrual the next year time quota?

Answer is yes, the time accounts will get accrual posted (calendar jobs will run automatically after creating the time accounts for latest period if accrual rule has been attached to the time account types).

Configuration of automatic recurring time accounts:

For recurring time account types to generate accrual jobs automatically for the future account periods, please select the fields as below in the Time Account Types and add an accrual rule too:

1. Account Creation Type = Recurring
2. Account Creation Start Date = Account Valid From (Day or Month) for Time Account Type.
3. Account Creation Automation = Automatic Account Creation
4. Fill Account Valid From [Day], Account Valid From [Month], Account Booking Offset [Months] and Account Creation Offset [Months] as per the business requirement.
