3 key configuration setups to master in Variable Pay
Variable Pay is a highly complex module of SuccessFactors.
It can do a lot but can also take a very long time to configure and fine-tune if we don’t know how to navigate its sometimes choppy waters.
In this post I will show in 3 recordings how to master some key configuration setups to be more efficient when configuring or administrating Variable Pay.
- #1 – Save time when running the “Import Employee History from Employee Central” job by using the Global Eligibility Rule for EC records (also called Records Filtering rule).
- #2 – Know how to control the number of records that show in employee history by using the Merge criteria in the varPayEmpHist background element.
- #3 – Control Assignment Details fields visibility with assignment level custom fields (ALCF)
For this #3, please find below the xml with the specific tags from the example in the recording in bold (to facilitate copy pastes) :
<comp-field-definition id="customAssignmentLevelCountry" isCustomField="true" isVisible="true" type="string" useFor="varpay" level="assignment" importKey="country" importSrc="DM" readOnly="true" hidePercentage="false" hideAmount="false" percentageReadOnly="false" reloadable="false" displayOrder="1" reportable="true"> <comp-field-label><![CDATA[CountryAAA]]></comp-field-label> </comp-field-definition>
Assignment level custom fields can also allow us to make calculations at the record level for example below to calculate the number of days for each assignment which is a frequent request :
All the best,
