From release Q1 2018, the background jobs scheduled in EC Time Management have been integrated with the Execution Manager dashboard, which is available in the Admin Center. In the Scheduled Jobs tab of the dashboard administrators can now monitor the status of the time management job runs. In addition, they can manage under which conditions and to which recipients email notifications should be sent with the results of the job runs.

From release Q1 2018, a new Time Account Payout object is now available. It links the corresponding Time Account Details record for the deduction and the Spot Bonus record for the payout of a time account balance. Thus, an administrator will not just be able to create a payout, but to edit and cancel it as well. Time account payouts that have been administered outside of the system can now also be easily uploaded as Time Account Payout records.
Note that you can only use the new object in the People Profile (PP3), not in the v12 UI.

Time and Attendance Management
As of the Q1 2018 release, automatic account creation and accrual is available for time accounts based on time account types where the Employee Flexible Date has been selected as the reference date. In earlier releases, administrators had to create the corresponding Time Off calendars manually, and schedule them to run on a regular basis. Now, the system creates such calendars automatically and runs them as part of the daily background job.
