Layouts Maintenance screen is used by the Optimum System
Administrator to define the layout of the payroll interface file for output
from Optimum to your organisation's payroll system. The payroll
interface is processed using the
Payroll Interface screen. Before you can use an interface layout
to create a payroll interface file, you must first associate it with
the salary type on the Salary Types
Caution! If you edit an
interface layout created by another user, your changes will be
applied to their layout. We strongly recommend that if you need to
make changes to an existing layout you copy it and edit the copy or
create a new layout.
You can create
and maintain as many interface layouts as required.
Layouts Maintenance screen has four tabs:
To create a new
interface layout, click New on the Layout tab and work
through the tabs in order.
To copy a layout,
highlight it in the Interface Layouts list and click Copy
on the Layout tab. This will copy all records for the selected
layout (layout, lines, columns and codes).
To copy a single
line, click Copy on the Lines tab. This will copy the line
and any associated columns.
