2615927 - Dynamically control Time Type for employees based on condition

Symptom

We have a Time Type which is linked with Time Account Type. As per business logic Time Account balance is condition dependent. For example Time Type name is “Child Care Leave”.

If employee’s youngest child’s age is below 7 years, then he/she will get 5 days’ balance. There will be no balance/quota for those employees whose youngest child’s age is more than 7 years.

Client has a requirement that in the Time Off Screen Time account balance or time type will be hidden if quota balance is 0. In case if balance is not 0 then it will show the quota balance/time type in the Time Off Screen. Means quota balance/time type visibility is dynamic based on quota value.

In Time Profile there is a parameter called as “Hide Account Balance”. If we set the value as “No” for Child Care leave it will also not show balance for those employees who has valid quota balance. Means we can’t use “Hide Account Balance” parameter as per our requirement.

I also checked implementation guide book for Time Off but could not find anything for dynamically hide the quota balance/time type value.  Please confirm do we have this functionality available in SuccessFactors Time Off.

Environment

Reproducing the Issue

Not Required

Resolution

There is no way to hide or make time type available for the employees or admin according to a dynamic condition in the current system.

Workaround:

You will have to maintain two different time profiles for the employee's who have youngest child younger than 7 years old and for ones who have older than 7 Years old youngest child.

That way you can control the hiding of zero balance but manual time profile change needs to be done in job history.

Please submit an idea for this feature by following steps as described in below KBA for Product Management team to consider in future releases.
