It came to my attention that there is a new design in the payslip summary from this discussion - Payroll Summary layout problems
Honestly, we do prefer the previous payslip summary where we can view each line for each employee - Name, Gross Pay, Total Deductions, Net Pay, Total Contributions.
Now with the new layout, which group them by category, thus making it very difficult to view each employee in a row and no longer looking like a summary. The most important part of the summary, “Net Pay,” missing from the report.
We use the Payroll Summary (the previous layout) nearing the payroll day to actually make export data to Microsoft Excel and then convert it to the required format before submitting it to the banking system to make the payroll transfer. We also make printout copy to crosscheck the payments made against the “Net Pay” are actually correct.
The new layout doesn’t provide the “Net Pay,” and our years of workflow stopped with the new layout. We cannot be printing individual payslip or looking through one-by-one and typing the “Net Pay” data into Excel file. The steps of getting the “Net Pay” are getting not friendly user anymore.
Also, there was mentioning of Report Transformation as the means to customize the way we want for the Payslip Summary. However, since I am not technical in HTML, this is becoming more troublesome. Probably, @lubos and Manager team should provide some templates for the Report Transformation like the Payslip Summary (the previous layout), the Contribution Report, the Deductions Report to allow non-technical person like me a straight-cut solution. I would understand that @Tut would say get someone to do the HTML (as he had said that many times to many people), but as a lay user, we can’t be hiring people to do HTML, when the Manager had been providing us that reports, only that the new layout took over and the basic stuff missing from the reports.
I hope something can be done soon as per next week is the payroll week. Or something like a guide that I can grasp easily without hiring a programmer to customize a report for my needs.
Thank you for the helps.
