Reproducing the Issue

Erroneous Time Off Alerts Triggered


This has occurred when the EmployeeTime records were all modified by v4admin(System User)


  • This occurs when a recalculation or a PEP process (During the year end) has run that results in updating the EmployeeTime Record thereby triggering the Alerts configured on the Employee Time Object.
  • In this case, PEP run has set the field Editable to "No" and therefore the post save rule was triggered.
  • As a solution, Add a condition in the rule so that the alert should not be triggered if Editable = No or last modified by = v4admin.
