Time Management retro calculations

HI We went live with negative time Mgmt in March 1st 2013.In Feb 2014 we recieved a request to chnage the base entitlements effective from Dec 15th 2013. So that the chages are effective from DEc 15th 2013 we ran the time eavluationn with forced calculation date as Dec 15th 2013.With these chnages done we are getting correct Quota being generated in it 2006.

But the duration of the time evaluation in back ground mode has increased from one hr to 15 hrs .

I have a question here do we need to always run the time evaluation with forced run date filled in or the forced run is a one time activity and once the quoat have been genertaed we can remove the forced run option and run the time eavluation as usual.

Can some body help me answer this question .

Thanks and regards

Rajeev Chhabra

    Hi Rajeev,

    Forced retrocalculation only done when old record need to update like in your case Dec15th 2013 on Feb2014 else time evaulation run period to period.

    In your case i think so one or more time type is carrying huge data at the time of time evaluation run and not getting clear. So you can do that after the time evaluation run analysis in CUMBT function output details and due to this it's taking longer time for execution.

    Hi Rajeev,

    Forced retro calculation is needed only during configuration changes. And it is a one time activity. The time evaluation duration would have increased because you are retroing back so many months for all the affected employees.

    Once you have done it, you don't need to do this activity again because the changes have already been taken into consideration.

    Thanks and regards,

    As suggested it is not mandatory that you have to execute forced retro all the times.

    There are 2 cases one system will check the master data changes and triggers the retro depends up on info type and fields characteristics.

    2nd any configuration changes done in the system with the past date then to imply the changes you have to key in the forced retro date execute it.
