Edge Import - New Compensation Load Type (Individual Targets)

With this enhancement, Edge Import now provides the ability to import individual targets for Compensation in bulk via manual loads or scheduled feeds using Edge Import. With this load, customers can import records containing bonus and equity target values by user and target date. Feeds are supported with this new load type.

With the upcoming deprecation of Data Load Wizard (DLW) for Compensation, customers will use Edge Import for Compensation data loads and feeds. With the addition of this new load type and the new Salary Structure load type, all Compensation loads that are supported within DLW are now available within Edge Import.

The following attributes are supported for individual targets:

  • User ID - This field indicates the primary OU for the salary range. This value must be a valid OU ID and of the correct OU type.
  • Target Type - This field indicates the type of the target, Bonus or Equity.
  • Target Name - This field indicates the name of the individual target, such as RSA, NQO, LTI, Bonus, or custom bonus type. Acceptable target names are included in the template guide.
  • Amount or Percent - This field indicates whether the target is a fixed amount or a percentage.
  • Amount or Percent Value - This field indicates the individual target value. Amounts are assumed to be in the target user's currency.
  • Target Date - This field indicates the date of the individual target.
