2614309 - Automatic Account And Accrual Creation For Flexible Date Time Accounts

Symptom

How to set up automatic account and accrual creation for flexible date time accounts?

Environment

Successfactors - Employee Central Time off

Cause

  • Time Account creation start date can be set with a flexible date. This was introduced in the 1708 release (Refer KBA 2532000 - Flexible Date For Account Creation Start Date). However, these accounts could not be set to Automatic Creation.
  • From 1802 release, you can set the Time Account as well as accruals to be automatically created based on the offset.

Resolution

TIME ACCOUNTS

  • Automatic account creation can be chosen in the Time Account Type (TAT) for flexible accounts as well as the Account creation offset.

  • If the TLM Trigger Task job (in provisioning) is called, an account creation calendar should be created for today plus account creation offset (start date and end date of the calendar).
    Example: Account Creation offset is -1 month. Today is 1/12/2017. The Time Account 01/01/2018 - 31/12/2018 calendar will be created and run on 1/12/2017.
