Click Human resources > Setup > Time and attendance > Payroll > Pay agreements. Select a pay agreement in the left pane, and then click the Pay agreement lines button.

Use this form to set up pay agreement lines for the selected pay agreement.

You can add limitations to a pay agreement line, meaning that the pay for that line is generated only under special circumstances, for example, if a worker has worked on a specific operation or project or a worker is connected to a specific profile.

Pay agreement lines must be set up for each weekday.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
