If you configure a leave type with basic entitlements and special rights such as Age-related Hours and/or Seniority-related Hours in a leave scheme, an expiration date will be set for all the hours in the Leave balance screen, provided this has been configured. In basic entitlements, if you have the Leave entitlement per year field set at 0 and special entitlements are configured, then no expiration date was provided for the special leave entitlements. An expiration date was shown only if you left the field Maximum negative empty. Since this is not the way it should function, we modified the software.
As of the 2023-04 release, the software has been modified to ensure that this error no longer occurs. In future, special leave rights without a basic entitlement will also be assigned an expiration date.
If the expiration date is missing from special rights in your organization, you can adjust the leave year. After recalculation of the leave year, you will then be able to see that special leave rights have also been assigned expiration dates.
If in an import file the Unique Personal ID (UPI) was emptied and another field modified slightly, the UPI at the person level was also emptied but the links of the employee and person remained. If you then tried to enter the UPI again using the Change UPI screen, the system would display the error message that the person code already exists, which is correct because the person has not been terminated.
This issue was due to the UPI being emptied for the person and all the underlying employees. We have therefore modified the software so that it is no longer possible for a person’s UPI and the UPI of all the underlying employees to be emptied, while maintaining the link between the person and employees.
In HR Core Business, you can solve this manually by entering the UPI yourself for the Person. This is not possible in the Person screen however, because the Person code field – where you have to enter the UPI – is a read-only field. This can be resolved by creating a free screen where you insert the fields Unique Personal ID (UPI) and Person code, as described below.
