  • Salary Positioning: In order to see salary positioning, either current Payguide or final Payguide or both must be selected in column designer or in this plan;
  • History: To see history section, you need do following things first:
    1.  First predefine some periods: go to Compensation Home -> Actions for all plans -> Compensation Profile -> Add/Edit Compensation History -> define some periods (include your current plan);
    2.  In admin tools, select and open your current plan from left plan list -> Plan setup -> Design Worksheet -> Define Compensation Period Data -> pickup some periods in this page which you defined at above step.


Can we rearrange the layout of the Profile or History screens? Not at this time currently.


If you are comparing two periods which contains different plans and have different currencies, for example, plan 1 in period 1 is using USD, and plan 2 in period 2 is using CNY, then the chart view will not be displayed, as by design it is not meaningful to compare two different sets of currency data. You can still view the data from the list view.


  • We cannot update the field property as "Reportable" even after the Forms are launched between the Pay Cycles since the form needs to be relaunched between the pay cycles.
  • The field type has to to be "Money" and "Reportable" must be checked in order for it to be visible
