2078564 - Plan Setup - Live Profile View - Variable Pay


  • Live Profile View enables managers and employees to see an individual employee view of the VP bonus calculation in Live Profile.

  • Live Profile view visibility can be controlled by the VP Administrator throughout the VP process, even after VP forms have been created.

  • Your data model requires an update to feed data from your variable pay program into your live profile view. Use the data model elements varPayEmpHistData and vpIndividualView.


  • Variable Pay


  • Admin Tools > Compensation Home > Select correct plan > Plan Setup > Setting > Live Profile Visibility.


  • Note! Live Profile View does not require that VP forms be completed – as soon as the view is enabled, as described above, the current VP form (in its current route step) will be displayed.

  • When implementing var pay, the companies data model will require xml configuration.
     Elements that will need to be included in the data model include:

          <background-element id="varPayEmpHistData" type-id="24">
             <label>Variable Pay History Data</label>


  • Then add the following code to the "read" permission section of your data model:

         <element-permission type="read">
           <description>The roles that may read Variable Pay Individual View in Live Profile</description>
           <standard-element-ref refid="vpIndividualView"/>


  • Once this is configured the data can populate the sections within Live Profile.
     Please contact support or a partner for the full element code required and for implementing var pay, as this is not something that would be done by a client.
