When changing the maximum fraction digits for a field (example- FTE) into 7, system reverts the number of decimal places to 5.
Reproducing the Issue
1. Go to Admin Tools > Manage Business Configuration > jobInfo element
2. Change the Maximum Fraction Digits value to 7 for FTE field.
3. Save the changes.
4. Search for an employee and manually change the FTE with a value having 7 decimal places.
5. System immediately changes it to 5 decimal places.
This is an expected system behavior.
The possible values for Maximum Fraction Digits ranges from 0 to 5 only.
However, you may only use this property only to HRIS fields with the data type DOUBLE. If you do not use this attribute for a DOUBLE data type, the number is rounded to three decimal places by default.
If you define a negative value, the default value of 3 decimal places is used.
