Once the Payslip is generated, the Layout and the fields selected appear in the Additional Information columns on the employee’s payslip.

    3. Continue to apply the content by checking the desired checkboxes of the information you wish to see on the payslips.

Customise the payslip's layout.

All Payrolls: The format affects all payrolls selected in the Content tab.

Each Payroll Separately: The Specific Payroll drop down list becomes active.

  1. Navigate to the Customisation Layout tab.
  2. From the Scope drop down list, select either of the following.
  3. Select the desired payroll.
  4. From the Available Fields pane, select the field(s) you wish to display on the Payslip.
  5. Drag the field(s) to the desired place in the Payslip Custom Area pane.

    You can display text in the Payslip Custom Area by clicking in the Drag to custom area to add text label field and dragging the cursor to the desired place in the Area to add a text label e.g. Private and Confidential.
