  • For the use of function "Get Number Of Months From Hire Date" please see in documentation page.
  • If you use accruable start end/ accruable end date instead of start date /end date then the function will not return correct value.
  • Because Start Date is the start date for the accrual period. For example, if a monthly accrual frequency is defined, this parameter is filled with the first day of the month the accrual rule is called for.
  • The accruable start date is later than or the same as the accrual start date. The accruable start date can vary due to some factors.
  • Therefore, we need to use Start/End date while using this rule.
