Friday Feature - Salary Schedule Snapshots

Last week, we talked about using the two columns of the Salary Schedule (Salary Rate and Budget Amount) to perform what-if scenarios. To keep you on track, the Salary Schedule activity has two snapshots that let you see at-a-glance the differences!

Check it out. Here we have a salary schedule for non-represented employees. We have changed our budget by 2.16%. Now, we are going to review the Salary Schedule Snapshot Actual and the Salary Scheduled Snapshot Proposed to see the difference.

 You can select which snapshot you want to see from the list.

 Here we see the figures for the actual salary schedules: what would be used in payroll processing.

 Here we see the "proposed" budget figures. These could be loaded into budget, but they are not a part of payroll processing.

That's a nice spreadsheet view! By running both snapshots, one after the other, you can dig deep into the figures. See how I highlighted the first column in each, making it super easy to see the 2.16% raise.

Let's say that we like these figures. Next week, I will show you how you can have your cake and eat it too, using begin/end dates so that you don't have to rename a salary schedule, saving you a ton of time!
