I got a client requirement to map EL(Earned Leave) quota configuration on monthly basis with 1.5 days per month. User asked me to configure in such a way that if the Employee is present in full month or availed only paid leave for the particular month then the EL quota will be full i.e. 1.5 days. If there is any LWP (Leave without Pay) so the EL quota generation will be prorated as per the present days basis.So in that case employee is not going to get full quota allocation.The quota will be generated in No Time Evaluation Basis.To map the above requirement I used the Reduction Rule concept. Please find the solution details in SAP

        I have a requirement that 1 day EL quota should get updated if there is no PL / SL / LWP in IT2001.

        Can I configure using this method?

          It’s all about reduction rule helps in prorating the quota number. You ve to go for a pcr to validate your condition and then pass the EL time type details with 1 or 0.

                Hi Santosh,

                Followed all your configuration steps. Checked them twice too. However while running PT_QTA00 I am getting below pop up message:

                You have not selected any generation rules
