2417461 - Claim Mileage Roundtrip is not Equal to twice the Single Trip

Symptom

When you calculate the mileage of an expense report, you notice that the roundtrip is not equal twice the single trip.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Auditing Workcenter.
  2. Select Expense Reports Subview.
  3. Click on Create Expense Report.
  4. Fill in the required details (Such as Employee ID, Purpose and so on).
  5. Click on Save and Open.
  6. Click on Claim mileage.
  7. In From input the starting postcode of the trip and in To input the destination postcode. Total Distance is XYZ. (XYZ represents distance )
  8. Tick Roundtrip and Total Distance is XYZ1 and not equal to twice a single trip. (XYZ1 represents distance )

Cause

The system takes various elements in consideration when calculating a roundtrip such as quicker ways or one way streets. Therefore, it can happen that the total mileage of a roundtrip differs from twice the single trip.

Resolution

The calculation is correct. This is an expected system behaviour. Two single trips does not necessarily equal the roundtrip.
