ARCOS has updated the email notification employees receive regarding their Bid Preferences to be

The following EVB issue has been resolved:
• RAPD-10443 - If Awarded and Published Prior to Shift Assignment, Hours are Never Deducted from
Accruals When Published When Bid Round Hours Charged is Based on Shifts
Schedule Shift Hours.
Below are scenarios associated with this specific setting in Legacy and EVB, and the results. In all
examples, all employees have 0 vacation accruals in the Edit Paid Time Off Bank. If employees have
more than enough hours, it will never deduct them after they are initially Awarded or Published prior to
1. If shifts have never been assigned to the employee, when vacation is Awarded, it is reflected in the
Award table (as unpublished), with 0 hours to charge, because no shifts to charge against. EVB
works this way as well. (No bug - this is just informational)
2. When shifts are later assigned after awarding vacation, if they don’t have sufficient accrual hours,
their accrual balance hours are reflected negatively in the Future or Past approved PTO. If shifts
are assigned, EVB reflects the published shifts in future or past approved PTO tables, but doesn’t
deduct the accrual hours. (This is a bug as accruals should be deducted when the shifts are assigned)
3. If shifts were previously assigned prior to submitting awards, and the bid package is shortened, they
are charged for the former bid line hours even though no longer in effect (no shifts anymore but
based on former bid line assignment. Not reflected in Future or Past PTO award tables.) EVB
doesn’t deduct accrual hours but does display the labels for published awards without shifts as
expected. (This is a bug as accruals should still be deducted based on the old bid line which was
4. If one extends the same shift bid package bid lines, reinstating the employee’s former shifts, the
awards are reflected in the Future or Past PTO Award tables and deducts the hours from the accrual
balance resulting in a negative balance. EVB reflects the published shifts in future or past
approved PTO tables, but doesn’t deduct the accrual hours (same as #2, but a different scenario).
(This is a bug as accruals should be deducted when the shifts are assigned)
