Environment

  • HCM SuccessFactors

Cause

  • In Employee Central, Portlet Manage Time OFF, the portlet TimeAccount offer the possibility to show accrual values for an employee in the future. This feature is called "Simulated Accrual" that calculated automaticly in the porlet timeaccount, how many Accrual days earned for a future time period.

Resolution

This is a known Reporting product limitation as Reporting tool can report only on physical data written in SuccessFactors. "Simulated Accrual" does simulate Accrual days for an employee but in Employee Central back-end, is not an actual fields. For this reason, if you desire to report on future Accrual time, Accrual data should be posted(section Time Account Posting). Therefore, you should avoid to use "montly generated Accrual" information that populated montly your Accrual information for an emplooyee.
