2078101 - Manage Data - Employee History Link has dissappeared - Variable Pay


  • In old Admin Tools, I can’t see Import Employee History link anymore and filters have disappeared in Edit Employee History.


  • Variable Pay


  • This is a by design behavior when Enable Assigner Based functionality is enabled in Provisioning > Company Settings.


  • This problem can happen when using Assignment-based Rating. This is a common configuration error where Enable Assigner Based is enabled in provisioning (Company Settings > Variable Pay).
  • As a result, you won’t be able to import Employee History.
  • In many case you won’t even be able to browse Employee History since filters are gone and Search Users returns no result.


  • This functionality has nothing to do with Assignment-based Rating; it has been specifically implemented for one customer who wanted to prevent his administrators from being able to import/modify Employee History.


  • IMPORTANT! In new Admin Tools (Compensation Administration 2.0), Import Employee History link won’t be missing but filters in Edit Employee History will.


  • In many case, you won’t be able to generate any form. You will receive a notification saying that form creation went successfully and 0 forms where created.
