Rename the Label for Instructions from the User Interface

Overview of the change

You’re now able to customize and localize the label for Instructions for each of the tabs in your Compensation and Total Compensation templates from Admin Center.

You can include a message to the compensation planners for each of the tabs you've enabled by using the Instructions icon to access the message on the worksheets. To change the label for this message for a Compensation or a Total Compensation template, go to Admin CenterCompensation Home<Template>Plan SetupDesign WorksheetPlan Instruction .

Place the desired label in the text field next to Label. You can also Change Language and enter the label for any other languages. If you don't customize the label, the system displays the default label Instructions or its translation based on the language of the worksheet.

This enhancement gives you flexibility in defining the labels for the default Instructions label as well as in setting up translations in other languages.

What's Changed

In the current version, you can customize the label for Instructions for each of the tabs on your Compensation, Variable Pay, and Total Compensation templates from Compensation Home.

How it Looks Now

Previously, you modified the label for Instructions in the XML of the template from Provisioning.

Enhancements in Compensation Statements

Overview of the change

We've made improvements to the compensation statement editor as well to the way that the statements appear to the users.

What's Changed

How it Looks Now

The changes are made in the following areas:

Multiple language support for statements: In the current version, you can now create a single statement template for all the locales in your company. You now see an Add Language link. Select this link to enable the languages you wish to use when generating statements. You can then add language-specific text in the text fields on the template as well as add any fields from the compensation templates. The labels for languages are populated from the labels configured in the compensation plan.

Preview Edited Statement: You can now preview the statement once you're done editing the statement template. In the current version, you can now use the Preview button to visualize the changes made to the statement template.

In the previous version, the Preview option wasn't available.

Rich Text Editor (RTE) options for text fields when editing a statement template:

In the current version, you have additional options for text editing as well as options to add images or tables to the content in the template.

In the previous version, there were fewer options when editing the content in a statement template.

Bulk print of statements from the worksheets same as from the Executive Review. In the current version, you now have an option in the compensation worksheets to bulk-print statements. When you select the Bulk Print Statement icon, you see the same dialog box where you can choose to print a separate PDF for each employee or a single PDF file for all employees.

Bulk Printing by Target Population: In the current version, you now have the option to print compensation statements in bulk based on users rather than the planner. Go to Compensation HomeActions for all PlansCompany Settings and check the box for Enable Employee-Level Target Population for Admin Bulk Print Statement to enable the bulk printing of statements by target population.

This enhancement is from a Customer Influence Idea 45269

Same number format:We now consistently show the number format that you've defined for the template in the statement editor User Interface. Previously, some areas displayed a different number format in some areas of the editor and on the generated statements.

Statement recall email notification:The email notification that you receive when statements are recalled for employees now includes their usernames as well as user IDs. Previously, the email notification only had the user IDs.

These enhancements make the experience of creating, generating, and managing compensation statements more intuitive and easier for the compensation administrators. Also, the employees see greater consistency in their statements.

Time Management NewYou can use this scenario to hide allowance types under certain conditions from the selection dropdown when an allowance is recorded.

Rules based on application-specific rule scenarios have reduced risk of misconfiguration and the process of rule creation is simpler.

For Global Benefits, the rule scenarios had their own individual checks in the Check Tool functionality. These no longer exist and have been replaced by a singular global check called CheckExecutorRuleValidationRuleScenario. It is displayed as All Assigned Benefits Rules are Valid. All rules that are registered under CheckExecutorRuleValidationRuleScenario will be checked when you run it.
