Folks, this will be reflected in october, I saw it in an email that was recently sent out especially to USDC folks The subject for the email was something like USDC Promotion process for FY22 and they attached a deck. You can find it in the deck when it will get adjusted.

C1 .its not autocalculated .... i have already taken it & logged pto..it never reflects ..so it is 100% adjusted at year end...

In a USDC all-hands a little while back they said that util is based off 45 hours a week with PTO worked into it. They insinuated that, provided you work how you're supposed to work, your util should still hit percentage marks even after you use PTO. Not sure what the adjusted util percentage is. Hopefully someone here has better insight into this.

I don’t know if it applies to USDC too but you should have received a few emails about it if so. It’s adjusted utilization, you report it at year end.

It does apply to USDC practitioners, it is adjusted util and if you reach out to your RM they will share the excel that has the formulas in it to calculate what it will be after adjustment.
