Lumpsum or Adjustment are not in the template/editable


  • Mass action is available to use with Merit, Lumpsum and Adjustment. If these fields are not within the template or are not editable then the button will be grayed out.
  • If you only have Lumpsum editable then this will be the only option you see under the program drop down and visa versa for Adjustment and Merit.
  • You only need to have one of these fields set to be editable and then the button will appear. Whichever you have set to editable will be the one that shows in the program as stated above. See screenshots below:

Adjustment No and Lumpsum Yes.png

  • Final Result will be the below screenshot. Note Merit, Adjustment and Lumpsum have been set to read only "No":

If Merit is NOT showing in the drop down please refer to point 9 "If Merit split to lump sum is enabled, mass action is available on lump sum only".
This can be found in the XML and can be removed completed.
