9.2 Creating Pay Run IDs
Purpose: Use this document as a reference for creating Pay Run IDs in ctcLink.
Audience: Payroll Administrator
Use the Pay Run Table page to create Pay Run IDs, which will be entered in the Pay Calendar table to combine respective pay groups for processing in a single payroll run.
Pay Run IDs should be created for the entire calendar year.
Pay Run IDs must be created before you can enter them on the pay calendar.
Pay Run IDs for the following year are typically created prior to September 15th of the current year.
Pay Run IDs must be assigned to each calendar entry before you run the payroll to process the pay groups together. See quick reference guide “Updating Pay Calendar Table” for information on making changes to pay calendar entries.
