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 be very long 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 your employee history by using the Merge criteria in the varPayEmpHist background element.



  • #3 – Control Assignment Details fields visibility with assignment level custom fields.
