2136022 - Statements - Adding Custom Fields to Statements - Compensation



You have information you want to add to the statement that is not available by default in the statement editor to add. You can add basically any extra field value using custom fields. In this example we will use Manager Name,


How do we add a new field to the statement that is not currently available on the statement?






You want to include a field to your statement (for example Manager’s name) but can’t find this field under Statement template editor.


Currently Manager’s Name is not included in the standard Compensation Statements.

Below is a way to include Manager’s Name in the Standard compensation statements by creating a custom column. This same method can be used for any custom data not currently available by default.


IMPORTANT NOTE: This is only possible when you have not launched the compensation forms already because we need to add a custom column to the Form template.

If you need any formatting changes not possible in the editor then you will need to engage our Business Transformation Services Team to create a custom Statement template for you.
