2574721 - FTE applied to Stock Guideline warning – Compensation Management


Stock Guideline warning is not correct for users whose FTE is not equal to 1.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Stock Guideline is setup as below.
    Stock GDL.png
  2. User Janet with Paygrade 18 and FTE of 50% is expected to have a Stock Guideline of (low-high) 93,500 – 113,5100 but what’s showing in the warning pop-up is 46,750 – 56,755.


Since FTE is enabled / being used in the template it will be applied to the guideline (Guideline[min, low,def,high,max] divided by FTE).

On the sample user we have above the Min guideline is 93,500 divided by .50 = 46,750 and Max guideline is 113,5100 divided by .50 = 56,755.


If you do not want this calculation to be applied to your guideline but you still need to have FTE column in your template you must not include the standard FTE field/column instead add a custom column that will contain your FTE values.
