When I added a field to create the "Total PTO" field, it defaults to "Text" and does not allow me to select Number (decimal). I assume because of that, when I select "Calculated (read only)" option, I am not able to do a "Sum of" because it thinks it is a text.
I have tried to delete this field and followed advice from another forum posting to delete the PTO Leave and set up PTO Object. This had other issues related to that approach so I am back to my original issue with PTO Leave.
Please advise on how I can get the Total PTO property to be a Number (decimal) instead of a text.
To be more specific, locate the TotalPTO property in the Application Explorer, i.e. navigate to the class that contains the TotalPTO property, open the property and click on "Delete" button to delete away.
If you can still use the Form Configuration dialog, then create a new one using it. Otherwise, right click on the "Data Model" in the application explorer and create a new TotalPTO property as Decimal.
I apologize but I think I need more specific instructions. I clicked Designer Studio and have looked around in the various areas as well as in HRServices but I really don't know how to navigate this environment yet. I am very new to all of this and am struggling to find my way. At first I thought I found what I needed to delete and realized that I deleted the PTO Object instead. I don't know if that is going to negatively impact me down the road. I did not see a Total PTO property in that area and I do not know where else to look.
