2162679 - Compensation & Variable Pay - Assigning Statements by categories not displayed on the list


When assigning a new statements template to a Compensation or Variable Pay template it is possible to assign employees to this  statement template based on different categories: country, department, location, Job Code etc

In some cases the categories displayed in the drop down menu do not match the customer’s requirements and this screen can be customized to include a wider list of categories.
