Loading Absences using REST API in advanced mode

Hi All

 

We are using a Absence Type duration formula to calculate the absence duration for each employee maintained in the system. The FF calculates the absence duration by dividing the work schedule hours by 5 ( during non summer days) and by 4 ( during Summer days)

Our customer does not want to use/maintain work schedules, hence the above workaround to calculate the absence duration for each employee.

The customer also has a 3rd party integration where some of their employees record absences and this will continue to be integrated with Cloud. Employees will record absences as 1 day or 1/2 day in that 3rd party system. That 3rd party system will continue to send us 1 day or 1/2 day absences. Now, how do we convert this 1 day or 1/2 day absences to equivalent of employee hours in Cloud? We were thinking of using a HDL, but HDL file needs the values for absence duration and this duration overrides the value calculated by the formula. 

Howdy, Stranger!
