Retropay(Enhanced) actually runs the process for each of the retro periods with the new values and creates the differential amounts in the current month.
Just because you have information elements, it makes it more complex I guess.
How about entering the same element C , in the recalculation tab for C. See how are the results processed.
Ideally you should not do anything for indirect elements.
Thanks Vigneshwar, phew got a reply. Will try this first thing.
Can you please also let me know what are the normal entries in an event group for RetroPay. Asking this because the team that had implemented this has added a lot on unnecessary entries which creates retro assignment for almost all assignments on running the Retro Notifications report, although they do not add any retro entry still this causes a lot of confusion to client.
On my previous post we just had an arrears element for A and it was not processing for all. I created arrears element for B and C too, attached them to the recalculation tab and now it seems it is processing. I'll try your suggestion to attach C as recalculation to C and remove A and B and see what happens next.
Thank you. If you have used event group earlier please let me know the normal entries for the same.
It depends on what you need -

RetroPay(Enhanced) works the same way as normal Payroll.
What it does is imitate the normal payroll with the new value.
Say, the Annual Salary element is updated as of June. The system would recalculate the Payroll for each of the previous months with the new value and then compares it with the old values, then creates the retro elements with the difference.
Hope that helps,
On second ques regarding entries we have entries like PER_ALL_ASSIGNMENTS_F.PEOPLE_GROUP_ID. I think implementation team put those since those fire Element entries but i think this is unnecessary since we already have entries for PAY_ELEMENT_ENTRIES_F. In our case even if there is a change in People Group which doesnt affect entries it is coming in report (though no retro elements are processed).
This is how i went on o first ques.
Attached C in recalculation tab of C. Created a new testcase but no Arrears element were processed.
Then attached C to C, B to B and A Arrears to A. For this on a new testcase A Arrears were attached to the employee.
I think i would suggest this to client since he is sitting on my head.
