Associating a Compensation Component with a Planning Cycle

A planning cycle must have at least one compensation component associated with it. For each planning cycle, the list of associated components determines which component tabs (Merits, Promotions, Variable Pay, Stock, and so on) are accessible to managers during the planning process. The plan start and plan end dates are part of the planning cycle itself and apply to all components within it.

This task is a step in Process of Setting Up Compensation Planning.
