2822662 - 1908: Offset For Creation Of Accrual Calculation Base Object


  • No accrual calculation account type base records created in case there is a big gap (in date) between the oldest Accrual Calculation Base records and the uploaded ones.

        For Example: Suppose,  for employee XYZ, an ‘Accrual Calculation Base’ record dated 01/01/2015 exists in the system(Manage Data -> Accrual Calculation Base’).If you now try to upload a new ‘Accrual Calculation Base’ with date ‘01/08/2019, then the base object do not get created.

  • Having old records in the system will case performance and memory issues.
  • In order to avoid this, a new offset field (Accrual Calculation Base Offset(in months) ) is created in Time Management Configuration object.

  • This field is not visible by default. It’s visibility needs to be set to ‘Editable’ from the Configure Object Definition (i.e the Configure Object Definition-> Time Management Configuration -> Set visibility of the field Accrual Calculation Base Offset(in months) to Editable).
  • The value of the field should be <0


  • The above configuration means that you cannot create/import an 'Accrual Calculation Base’ object with date before 12 months from now.

For example: Today is 1st Aug 2019 and I am creating ‘Accrual Calculation Base’ with date 1st Aug 2017(which is way before 12 months). On save, it throws error “Please enter another date or change the Accrual Calculation Base Offset in Time Management Configuration”
