Future Booked Days are not calculated as expected.

When trying to see how many days I've booked off, the Future Booked Days only displays 1.25 days. Even though I've actually booked 19.25 days, in the future.

Note: Screen shot taken on 3/14/2017




From: https://www.replicon.com/help/how-are-future-booked-hours-calculated
How Future Booked is calculated
Future Booked Hours =
Sum of all hours booked off after the current day, up to your next scheduled balance reset
My reset is on Jan 1st.



My policy renewal (with carryover) is July 9th.



On the other hand, if the calculation was using my renewal (July 9th) as the reset, then it would be 1.25 days.

So...

1) This seems broken (based on the docs), and should instead use the reset date, rather than the policy date.

2) Why even limit the future booking calculation? If it's Dec. 20th, and I've taken 2 weeks in Feb., I'd like to see that in the calculation. It would be trivial to calculate the future bookings, and account for any resets as well.

Hi Bryan,

Thank you for using the Replicon Community!

As per the second screenshot attached by you, I could see that there was an accrual on July 1st and a carry over on the 9th of July. In most cases, the carry over happens as a part of reset on the policy. Hence since there is a reset, the system shows you the future booked days till then

As for your other concern, the concept of future booked days is to make the user aware about the number of days that have been used with regards to the total number of days available as balance. Hence we have put a tap on the same.

Thanks,
Aashnee

If, as you say, a reset happens on carryover, I can understand the calculation, per the docs. Makes sense.

I wonder if that can be made more clear, on the Balance History. Like maybe: "New Policy (Carryover, Reset)"

As for point 2), stopping the calculation at a reset doesn't seem useful to me. If I check my "Future Booked Days" on July 8th, it will show 0 days. But if I check on July 10th, without changing any PTO, I'll see 18 days. This makes no sense. How is this usefull to me?
