How to Correct or Update Compensation Information record via Import in Full Purge mode?


Employee Central - Employee Data Imports


Please note that when following the below guidance, the expected outcome is that the existing data is purged and replaced with fresh data from the Import file. For example, if you have 10 records for the user, and you perform a Full Purge import with 3 records, only the 3 records will remain after the import is completed.

Step 1: Download Compensation Information template

  1. In Admin Center > Import Employee Data
  2. Click "Download a blank CSV template" and select the appropriate template
  3. Here Compensation Information



Step 2: Run AdHoc Report

  1. Go to Analytic then AdHococ Report
  2. Create new Report
  3. Select  sub domain: Person and Employment Export
  4. In Column, Select only column "Employee Compensation Info"
  5. Filter Test user
  6. Save
  7. Backup  your report.



IMPORTANT NOTE: Please follow the "Step 2" also in the article 2494885 to ensure you have backed-up the Pay Component Recurring data for the same user, before Full Purging their Compensation Info data (as Comp Info and Pay Component Recurring data are corrected).


Step 3: Run a Compensation Information Full purge import for the user

Review the populated import template to ensure all data are correct.
If the fields in the AdHoc report and import template match, copy and paste can speed up this portion of the process 
Take note of the effective dates of your records to ensure there is no overlap

Make sure the end date column is not populated

  1. In Admin Center > Import Employee Data, for example, select Compensation Information
  2. Choose the ‘Full Purge’ option checkbox
  3. Choose the file created in step above and select ‘Validate’ to confirm the information is correct

Please note that a full purge import will erase all records and replace them with the data in the import file
