In Core HR client has three tier model and have a lot of users that have Multiple Assignments or Multiple Work relationships. Created Payroll elements at the Assignment level but now recognized that each time one creates a new assignment for a user, the Salary and the other elements have to be manually reassigned on the new assignment.

For example: A user has the assignment  Active from 1/1/2013 and we assign Base Salary = 50 000. From 1/1/2015 the old assignment become inactive and new assignment is created (Exxx-2). The Base Salary should be still 50000. In this case the old salary is not automatically copied on the new assignment and we need to do it manually. The issue here is that they can assign a Salary of 50000 on the new assignment just from 1/1/2015 and not from 1/1/2013 (since at that time they didn’t have the assignment Exxx-2).

This means that when HRs search for a user in Core HR the information about salary and other elements are not always reliable. To be sure they would have to look at the old inactive assignments of the user and check if the salary and other elements have changed or not.

The issue is also more complex since we set up also a compensation plan that consider the assignment Primary and Active to perform the annual compensation review. Through a Fast Formula client recall in the plan the “Last Salary Increase Date” from the Core HR (Manage Salary). It’s obvious that when performing the review the HRs need to know if that user had an increase last year or five years ago because this make a difference. If they consider the example above, in the plan they would have the following columns:
-Base Salary = 50 000 
-Last Salary Increase Date: 1/1/2015 which is incorrect

Is there a way to automatically copy salary and elements on the new assignment?
Qn2:1. Is it necessary to assign payroll to workers if the elements are recurring? Where can I assign payroll to workers?
