How do I setup a Payroll Trigger for my employee?

In the Employee Profile you wish to set up, go to the Payroll Instructions tab.

Find the Payroll Instruction you wish to set up for Payroll Triggers.

If the payroll instruction has never been overridden, click Add Employee Override in the right-most column. If the payroll instruction has been previously edited, click Edit in the right-most column.

 

To enable the Update Method edit feature, ensure that the checkbox for Override Default Properties is on.

Click Save. This will return you to the PI listing.

Now, Edit the Payroll Instruction you want to set up for Payroll Triggers.

 

Note: The initial or first default value of the payroll instruction should be entered in the Default Value field. The remaining values and their associated triggers will be set up in the Update Method table.

For Accrual Based triggers:
