Identify "Base" Pay Variables

Ensure the System Can Tell "Base" Pay Variables from Other Pay Variables

If you are using SchoolFront integrated with a payroll management system, pay variables (or "pay codes") are likely being exchanged between the systems. Some of these pay variables define the base wage/hourly rates / salaries of employees and others are auxiliary codes which represent things like stipends and overtime.

For salary adjustments to calculate properly the system must know which variables are the "base" ones. 

This section explains how to identify base pay variables in the system.
