Reproducing the Issue

Compensation has the following Rating Source: Rating is coming from a PM template and both Comp template and PM template use a custom Rating Scale from 0 to 4. That is one of the reason why the manager does not expect Rating = 0 for his direct report.

The Compensation forms handle 'unrated' and 'Unable to Rate' (in this case, 'N - Too early or long term absence') differently. If PM form is created but not rated, then in compensation form the rating should display as 'unrated'. But if the PM form is created and rating is saved as 'Unable to Rate', then the rating on comp form should display as '0'. This is the expected behavior of the system.


Usually customers use Rating Scale from 1 - 5 in order to avoid this kind of situation or change the XML definition to showFormRatingAs="text" instead of showFormRatingAs="number". Then all Ratings would display as text, and not number.
