  • This occurs once the Variable Pay template is updated using the column designer in admin tools.
  • The system automatically adds the code <ordered-by-cld enabled="true"/> when the column designer is utilized.
  • When ordered-by-cld is set to true, the system will calculate the column width automatically and display this accordingly.
  • The system assumes there may be more columns added in the future so it does not utilize the entire page.



To use the full page and bypass the configuration added when the column designer is used, please file a ticket with Customer Success.

The Customer Success representative will need to locate the code ordered-by-cld enabled="true" and set this value to false.

Note: Any xml changes need to be done prior to the launch of the Variable Pay Worksheet to take effect.
