I would like to know if it is possible to attach an element (Earning, Non-Recurring) automatically when some SIT information is entered to the system. To explain it better we have an SIT to enter the business travel details and once this is entered by the Employee it goes to manager for approval and once it is approved by manager it gets committed to the system. Now we need to calculate the amount/allowance employee is eligible for the business travel.
What I think is we can create an element and associate a fast formula (to calculate amount) with it but I also want to know if it is possible to attach that element automatically to the employee so that payroll department need not to attach it manually. Please let e know if it is possible.
You can also share your view if there is better way to achieve the solution.
Thanks you all,
You can do this using custom schedule Concurrent Program also.
As soon as SIT Information is approved, schedule concurrent program will create element entries for employee for respective SIT information's.
If you are licensed to use Individual Compensation Distribution (ICD) it can be used to manage the entire process with manager approvals. The setup is not very complex and you will get good control over things.
Its always good to know about new things specially in oracle world. I googled about ICD and found it is available with Core HR and Self-service licence.
So could you please explain more about this, if you have any document that you woul like to share that will be even better.
Does any one of you have the contents of "Understanding and Using Application Program Interface (API) User Hooks in Oracle HRMS [ID 73170.1]"
This link is no more available on metalink :-( really dont know why.
I don't have any documents on it but the functionality is very advanced in R12 compared to 11i and that's probably the reason it's still not very popular. The implementation guide is good for it and most of it is through pages and wizards. Try your hand at it and post back if there are any sticky points.
