2743887 - How does the successFactors calculate time in position in Job History and Position Org Chart

Symptom

You have noticed that the time in position is showing different results between your Position Org Chart and Job History.

For example:

Employee was assigned at position A by Jan 20th and today is Jan 23rd.

  • In Job History it shows that the employee has 4 days of time in position;
  • In Position Org Chart it shows that the employee has 3 days of time in position;

Environment

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central (EC) - All Versions

Reproducing the Issue

IN JOB HISTORY:

  1. Select any employee;
  2. Go to Job History;
  3. Take note of the field "Time In Position";

IN POSITION ORGCHART

  1. Go to the position orgchart;
  2. Select the position of the employee;
  3. Open the session "Incumbent Details";
  4. See that the time in position has one day less then in Job History.

Cause

Expected behavior

Resolution

This happens because in the Job history the calculation also counts the starting date, for example if the employee has position start date as Jan 20th the system will count 1 day starting on Jan 20th please see the table below:

Date Jan 20th Jan 21st Jan 22nd Jan 23rd

Total in days

Count 1 1 1 1 4

The same calculation when performed through the position org chart is different:

Date Jan 20th Jan 21st Jan 22nd Jan 23rd

Total in days

Count 0 1 1 1 3
