Employee Central - Advances and Deductions

Reproducing the Issue

Sync deductions objects via Instance Sync tool


You must enable both advances and deductions, you cannot enable just one of them


Please enable both addvances in deductions in both the source and target instances

The handbook states that you must have both enabled

To enable either feature

1. Go to admin centre

2. Search for Manage Employee Central Settings

 3. Turn on both Advances and Deduction Management
