Create a Balloon Payment Calendar

Navigation:  Main Menu > Set Up HCM > CTC Custom > Balloon Payment ID Table

  1. Navigate to the page and, if this is the first time entering a Balloon Calendar for a college , click Add a New Value.
    • When adding a new value, enter the Company code (college code) and click Add
    • Otherwise, search by Company code (college code)
    • Every ID set is unique to the Company so every school will have their own Balloon Payment IDs
  2. Enter an Effective Date for the ID table
    • If you need to add more Balloon Payment IDs in the future, the user will have to add a new effective dated row
  3. Enter a Balloon Payment ID
    • Follow the ID naming criteria established by your school
    • It can only be 2 characters, alpha or numeric (e.g. 01, 5B, FF)
  4. Enter a Description for the Balloon Payment ID
    • This will describe your calendar to the HR Admin who assigns them to employees
    • It is 30 characters long so the description should be very short
  5. Enter a Schedule for the Balloon Payment ID
    • This must correspond with the payroll period desired for processing (e.g. 01A, 01B, 02A, etc.)
    • It only has to be indicated once for use in the future, a calendar created in 2017 will be good for every year following
  6. Enter a Salary Multiplier for the Balloon Payment ID
    • This will represent the amount of the salary the employee will receive in addition to their regular salary
    • For a multiplier of 5, if an employee gets $1000 per pay period, they would get on the indicated payroll period $1000 + $5000 = $6000.
