2902742 - Leave accrued only for first 2 years from hire date


You hired an employee with past dated hire date (ex. Jan 1 2010) and the Time Accounts accrued only for 2 years


SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - Time Off

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Hire an employee with past dated hire date (ex. Jan 1 2010)
  2. After hiring, Time accounts from hire date(2010) to present are created
  3. But the accruals are only present 2 years from the hire date


This is an expected behavior.

If you hire someone in the past, accruals are created automatically only for the first 2 years after hire. Afterwards, a manual change calendar needs to be run via Manage Time Off Calendar

NOTE: maximum accrual calculation horizon in month depends on the accrual frequency as daily accruals are most critical from performance / risk of memory overflow point of view. Refer to table below for Maximixum accrual creation.

Accrual Frequency Automatic Accrual Creation
Daily 24 Months (2 years)
Annual 120 Months (10 Years)
Others (Monthly, Bi-monthly, etc.) 60 Months (5 Years)
