  • Youcalc Setup Guide for Compensation Form. 


  • Compensation



  • Open a case with Customer Success and request this feature is enabled for your instance.
  • Turn around time is typically 1 week.
  • No Costs.
    Note: Your compensation templates are hardwired to specific YouCalc widget IDs. When you create new processes you may also need to update the widget ID referenced or create new widgets and link the new widget to the new template, so please build this item into your yearly checklist for launching a new cycle.

Currently YouCalc now supports Field Base permissions. If you apply ANY field based permission to a user for ANY field, that user will  be able to see YouCalc widgets.

  • Sign in to Provisioning.
  • Go to Company Settings.
  • Enable YouCalc widget on compensation forms.

   Disclaimer: Although the YouCalc widgets will display when field based permisssion is used, the widget will display all data regardless of FBP.  The Compensation administration will be responsible for hiding YouCalc widgets if they contain sensitive   information if field based permission is applied. (CMP-9811)



      Client Admin Sets These Permissions

  • Click Administrative Privileges.
  • Locate the user that should administer youcalc.
  • Click Dashboards/reports.
  • Make Sure ”Youcalc Models” is checked.

 Support for custom YouCalc widgets created by Implementation Partners is limited. If a YouCalc widget not downloaded from SuccessStore stops working it needs to be reviewed by the Implementation Partner.

  • Click the ”Upload Model” button.
  • Fill in all fields, press Save.

  • Locate the App id by clicking the newly uploaded widget, and find the Model ID in the middle of the page.
