What is vacation Rule?

A vacation rule in fusion is simply a rule or setup that allows you to reassign or delegate all your system notifications to anyone else within the organization. Though it is known as vacation rule, you are not restricted to use it only when you are on vacation. There is no system validation with your absence.  You can setup vacation rule at any point of time when you feel you will not have access to your application and want to reassign/delegate your FYI and FYA notifications so that approval process still moves in your absence.

  1. I am unable to set Position hierarchy. I have created job, position and employment thro’ manage job , manage positions and manage user tasks.In position , I have also created a Position tree and instantiated it. But the number of incumbent for the FTE is shown as 0 in the top on the manage position page. This causes the approval process, not finding an assignee. I found one sch. process “Position SynchronizationJob”. But i do not have permission to run that.

    How to set the Position Hierarchy for approvals ?
