Is Something Wrong With my Role List? Level 1

Hi, 

 

So while trying to update my Emp02 Employee Expenses module calculations for bonus, car costs, phone costs and medical costs to reference Emp03 Employee Drivers by Role module, I get this error: 

 

"Invalid error for 'EMP02 Employee Expenses'.Bonus: Automatic sum of 'EMP03 Employee Drivers by Role'.Bonus % over Role Hierarchy is not possible as Role does not have a built-in top level"

 

I'm guessing the issue stems from my Role list configuration because from my General list pane, my Role list doesn't have any text in the top-level box or in the parent box. What could I be doing wrong? 


I attached a picture of the error message.

@AashcaJ 

 

Tried that too, I got this error message: 

 

'All Roles' is not valid for the name of the top level item of Role. 'All Roles' clashes with the name of an existing List Member. 

 

However, no other list goes by the name "All Roles", so I'm confused as to where the 'clashing' is happening.

Hi @sosunkwo - I have been stuck on the exact same problem you had "Role List Problem" And can't seem to find an answer anywhere. Did you ever get to find a workaround for this? Thank you in advance!

Thank you @SatyamArora Please see more detailed info below as well as an screenshot. 

 

Original Formula:

IF Employed? THEN Salary * 'EMP01 Employee Drivers'.Bonus %[LOOKUP: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Department, LOOKUP: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Country] ELSE 0

 

New Formula: 

IF Employed? THEN Salary * 'EMP03 Employee Drivers by Role'.Bonus % [LOOKUP: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Department, LOOKUP: 'SYS08 Employee Details'.Role] ELSE 0

 

When I enter the new formula the attached Error Pops up.

Try to think which all line items do you need to apply this formula to, is it asking you to lookup specific .... related to employees
