Symptoms

P051129 does not provide a proper summarized view and is very confusing for the approving manager

When an employee uses Leave Planning (P07620) to submit leave requests and managers approve leave in Leave Management (P07640) manager or from Manager Leave Review (P076311) the EMPLOYEE TRANSACTIONS - BATCH FILE (F06116Z1) transactions created do not contain Pay Period End Date (PPED).

This causes an extremely confusing display in Self Service Manager Review and Approval (P051129):
- There is no Pay Period End Date (PPED) so multiple rows are displayed instead of summary and considering this is a summarized view it makes no sense.
-When you view the detail you have to view 'detail' on multiple records which defeats the purpose of having a summarized view entirely.

I see there is a bug 21379497 that states this functions as designed but we disagree.

This needs to be reviewed again on the following basis:
1. The application P051129 is supposed to be a summarized view but it does not provide a summarized view (clearly a defect), it provides multiple lines when leave requests are factored in.
2. It is reasonable to expect the PPED and related fields would populate given the flow of the leave request to the approval screen. If they were not intended to be part of this process then they would not even appear on the approval screen.
3. In the current state the user has to manually add the 'summarized' hours to derive the hours worked for the period that is being approved. This is an unreasonable expectation of a user. It defeats the entire purpose of automating this process which is clearly an oversight defect.
