Changing Order for entitlement listing

Hi All,

 

I just want to figure out is it possible to change order (circled in red) without deleting any categories.

I want to push up base salary on top of annual leave pay.

So that whenever i print out payslip, more important categories can be placed on the top and so on.

eg. 1. Base Salary

2. AL pay

3. LSL pay

4. Others

 

Please advise me on this. Thank you.

    The payroll categories lists are hardcoded to be in alphabetical order. If you were wanting to adjust the order of the various payroll categories then they would have to be renamed so that the order you wanted was done alphabetically

     

    This could be done by using a code at the start of the payroll categories name. so if you wanted to have Base Salary above Annual Leave Pay as an example you could rename them to be

     

    A1 Base Salary

    A2 Annual Leave Pay

    B1 Sick Pay

     

    This would allow the payroll categories to be sorted in the desired order. In addition you could also use different letters to create different “sets” of payroll categories. For example “A*” could be the basic wages, “B*” could be allowances and so on

  • something my clients do for categories that they don't use anymore but cannot delete, they rename the Category to add "Z" to it so it drops to the bottom of the list.
