Information in this document applies to any platform.

You must create a new payroll ID when you process payroll for a selected group of employees for the first time.
When you create a payroll ID, you must assign a unique program version to it.
You use this version to choose the employees to include in that payroll cycle. A version can be assigned to only one payroll ID. If no suitable version exists, you can add a new version when you create the new payroll ID.

Caution:
Verify that the version you specify is not already assigned to another payroll ID. The system checks for duplicate version numbers and it will display a scheduling lock error if two users try to submit the same payroll ID at the same time.

When you create a new payroll ID, you specify the pay period information that the system needs to process the payroll cycle. You also specify the reports you want to print during pre-payroll.

The payroll ID identifies the payroll version library where the system stores all the information for a payroll cycle. The payroll ID number must be unique and the same number cannot be used in different environments; i.e. production and test.
When you create a payroll ID, you must assign a unique DREAM Writer version to it.
