Compensation Task - Compensation Plans Tab

The Compensation Plans tab of a compensation task enables the compensation manager to create a compensation plan. Also, this tab displays all of the compensation manager's compensation plan drafts for the compensation task. If Executive Roll-up is enabled for the compensation task, then the compensation manager can view a subordinate's compensation plan drafts when viewing the subordinate's User Profile Dashboard.

The Compensation Plans tab only displays if one of the following is true:

  • The user that is displayed in the User Profile Dashboard is the compensation manager.
  • The user that is displayed in the User Profile Dashboard is the compensation manager's co-planner.
  • Executive Roll-up is enabled for the task.

To access the Compensation Plans tab of a compensation task, go to Home > Scheduled Tasks. Click the compensation task title. Then, click the Compensation Plans tab.

The Compensation Plans tab is the default tab for the compensation task if the compensation manager or their co-planner does not have subordinate compensation managers (i.e., the Roll-up Summary tab does not appear).

Breadcrumbs

At the top of the page, the breadcrumbs for the page are displayed. Users can click the links within the breadcrumbs to navigate to those pages. Note: The page to which the Home icon is linked is configured by the administrator in Navigation Tabs and Links.

The breadcrumbs include the compensation task name and the name of the compensation manager who is completing the compensation task. If the co-planner is completing the compensation task, then the name of the compensation manager for whom the co-planner is planning is displayed.

When the compensation manager navigates to view the User Profile Dashboard of a subordinate, then the subordinate's name is also displayed in the breadcrumbs.

User Profile Dashboard

At the top of the compensation task, the User Profile Dashboard is displayed. This section displays the compensation task title, the Options drop-down menu, view controls, and a summary of the compensation manager and the compensation task components.

See Compensation Task - User Profile Dashboard.

See Compensation Task - Options Drop-down.

Instructions

The instructions for the Compensation Plans tab are displayed below the User Profile Dashboard. The instructions are configured by the administrator when the compensation task is created.

Create Plan

Click the Create Plan button to create a compensation plan for the compensation task. Note: Users must have permission to manage compensation plans to create a compensation plan. See Compensation Plan - Create/View/Edit .

This button is available when the compensation manager or a co-planner is viewing the compensation manager's User Profile Dashboard and the task is not expired or completed. The button is also available when the compensation manager or a co-planner is viewing the User Profile Dashboard for one of the compensation manager's subordinates and Executive Roll-up is enabled with Edit access for the compensation task.
