With b1511 release, an Option for Renaming the Pay Types and Restricting their visibility based on Job Country of employee are available. The optional MDF object *Customized Pay Type* allows customers to create upto 4 Customized Pay Types and map them 1:1 to the standard Pay Types.
For each Customized Pay Type, a Country Assignment is required. It allows you to have upto 4 pay types with names meaningful for your employees and displayed only for employees of relevant job countries.
The Customized Pay Type field is automatically available in your Payment Information Detail MDF object and hence, visible on the Manage Data UI. If you do not want to use this option, you can delete the field from the MDF object PaymentInformationDetailV3 or set it to not visible in the filed properties.
If you want to use this option, please create the required Customized Pay Types under Manage Data – Create New – Customized Pay Type.
In order to expose the field to your employees in the Payment Information Portlet in Personal Information Page, you need to add the field Customized Pay Type to your Configurable UI. The field Pay Type can be then hidden on the Configurable UI, as it will be automatically populated with a value as soon as the connected field Customized Pay Type is entered.
In case of Employee Central Payroll – the new Customized Pay Types are not replicating into the targeted ECP system but also do not disturb the replication of the Standard Pay Types. You can start using this option at any time, as Customized Pay Type is an optional entry.
