Removing assignment proration in Variable Pay
In this recording we look at how to remove the built-in assignment proration in Variable Pay through additional custom fields in the employee history. The recording also provides a demo of how to mass edit existing Employee Central employee history records through CSV.
The excel spreadsheet to simulate the proration impact that I show in the recording can be downloaded here.
Please note : since EC bonus plans eligibility rules use the standard start-date field of each record for mapping (which we here override with 1/1 for all records) this workaround is only possible with non-EC bonus plan eligibility rules (which SAP recommends using because they make troubleshooting easier for customers, allow for EC and non-EC records to be mapped to the same bonus plan, and make bonus calculation jobs run much much faster).
