FTE updated to 0 when custom field is updated in Job Information

Hello Team, FTE automatically updates to 0 during the data change in the Job Information. Standard hours has been enabled in Job Information element. There's a rule which defaults the value to 1. Yet, the FTE changes to 0. Any idea? Thank you!

I would also check if the field is visible when the data change in job info is done because if not visible it will re calculate the field following the standard calculation (SWH in Job Info / SWH in the different objects) and if empty then value = 0.

Example mentionned by SAP : Standard Hours are not maintained for any of the four objects – position/job code/location/legal entity. Let's assume, HR Admin role has the permission to maintain FTE while Manager role doesn’t have permission to view FTE. HR Admin sets FTE to 1 for an employee. When employee’s manager edits Job information record of the employee, system will try to recalculate FTE. As per standard configuration, FTE will be 0 since system tries to recalculate FTE based on Standard Weekly Hours which is not available in any of the four objects. System will set FTE to 0 instead of 1.

For info i am currently getting the same issue but only at termination because of the following setting "Enable Centralized Services to Save Changes on the Manager Self-Service UI for Termination Details"

Hi Marion,

Your description makes sense for my scenario, where the user is performing a job information change with FTE not visible.

We made not visible in RBP all non-relevant fields for this particular type of self-service change (manager change), but it seems this was not an issue before release H1 2023.

Have you find any solution other than make the FTE field visible ?

Thanks and regards.

Hello Pérsio,

In my case FTE was visible but not the standard weekly hours. To solve the issue we had to make sure the standard calculation was correct even if the customer did not want to use weekly hours. Therefore we copied FTE to Standard Weekly hours field (at hire and on save on job info - field only visible to admin) and in each Legal entity we store Standard Weekly Hours = 1, so the system at the termination will calculate SWH in Job Info / SWH from Legal entity which is equal to the FTE.

Ex : FTE = 0.8 => SWH = 0.8 and as SWH in LE = 1, at termination the system make 0.8/1 = 0.8 FTE.

FTE is calculated based on the rule set in the system.

You might find the onChange-business rule in the standard weekly hours field of JobInformation.

That rule might give you an idea on why the value is set to zero.
