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.

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.
