How do I manage an employee's salary history via the HR platform?

An employee's salary may change because of a promotion, salary review or annual wage increase, and this would require an update of the information stored within the HR platform. Updating this information will make sure the employee has the correct pay details within the payroll platform, because the HR to Payroll sync for employee file changes is not bidirectional.

You can use the Salary History feature to add an employee's salary details and specify the leave allowance template, leave category, and pay schedule that needs applying. You can also use this feature to edit the information if it changes and delete a record if it is no longer required.
