2467575 - Spot Bonus not Available via Take Action


Spot Bonus does not appear in "Actions" menu dropdown despite having edit permission's for Spot Bonus and MSS permissions


  • Employee Central
  • Employee Central - Compensation Information

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to People Profile as a permissioned user
  2. Click on "Actions" and Spot Bonus will not appear


In Provisioning, the switch for Reward and Recognition is turned on which replaces Spot Bonus in the UI



If you are using the feature Reward and Recognition feature, then it is expected that the "Spot Bonus" link in Actions is hidden.


1905 Behaviour Change:

After the 1905 release, the Spot Bonus option will become available in the Action menu for permissioned users, regardless of having the "Rewards and Recognition" feature enabled. This will mean that permissioned users will see both the "Reward and Recognition" and "Spot Bonus" options in the Actions menu.
