Creating a New Payment Release

You can create a new payment release record and associate employees with the release. After the payment release is created, the Payment Release Details view automatically shows the balance for each associated employee.

To create a new payment release

  1. From the application-level menu, choose View > Site Map > Incentive Compensation Tracking > Payment Release.
  2. In the Payment Release list, click New.
  3. In the new record, enter the name of the payment release, and then save the record.
  4. In the Payment Release Details list, select a participant record, and then select the check box in the Release field to include the balance amount in the payment release.

    You can also enter an amount in the Adjustment field, which updates the Release Amount value, and you can enter a comment about the Release Amount.

When you release the Payment Release, payments for each participant with the Release flag set are automatically entered in the Employee Balances. The list of released payments is updated, and, as a result, the balance due amount is also updated. After the Payment Release is released and the payment released date field is populated, the entire record, including payment release details, is locked for audit purposes.

NOTE:  It may take one or two minutes for all the employee position fields to be populated when you create a new payment release. If you choose to save the record by stepping off the record (an implicit Save) rather than clicking the menu button and choosing Save Record, you will not see the hourglass reminder that release is in process. Please allow a few minutes for the process to finish.
