The deduction of absence and attendance quotas has been
completely revised for Release 4.0A. The following new functions
1. The number of places behind the
decimal point for the quota entitlement has been increased to five.
This makes the automatic accrual of quotas extremely precise (see
also the following release note: Accruing
Absence Quotas: Leave Accrual ). To ensure
consistency, the number of decimal places for quota used has also
been increased to five.
2. You are no longer restricted to
one quota type per absence or attendance type. You can now specify
a sequence of quota types to be deducted in consecutive
3. The deduction sequence can depend
on the attendance/absence quota type, or on the validity period or
deduction period of the quota. You can assign priorities to these
specifications to ensure that the quotas assigned to an employee
are deducted as you wish.
4. You can also decide whether or not
the other attendance and absence quotas assigned to an employee
should be deducted once the specified quotas have been used
5. Deduction rules are defined not
only for deducting attendance and absence quotas that employees
have not used up. You can also define deduction rules in which you
indicate which attendance and absence quotas are allowed to assume
a negative value (that is, more quota can be deducted than is
actually available). For each individual absence quota type, you
can specify the negative value limit for a quota record.
6. Specify a time unit (hours or
days) for the deduction rules so that the quotas are always
maintained in the same time unit.
7. Quota deduction is recorded
for each individual day in the
transparent table PTQUODED, making it easy to track
