How to add auto repeat for additional salary


#1

Many employees are given certain earnings and other deductions on a certain frequency for a certain duration. E.g.

Fuel allowance for 3 weeks on weekly basis during stay in remote area.

Would an auto repeat of additional salary more applicable?

Can’t add to salary structure as this is a temporary arrangement. It could well be extended for 10 or say 16 weeks.

Salary structure would generally be company wide.

Any help will be appreciated.


#2

Auto repeat feature in additional salary will come soon and under development.


#3

Thank you @nabinhait, for now we have done the following to continue.

We have added draft journal creation upon submission of Additional Salary as well to ease the work.


#4

We have a scheduled python script that runs to create the additional salary records and update the last transaction amount and date.

This is done using a separate custom app.


#5

We also had to create a checkbox to create cash journal so that from a single doctype where we store an account code, we could create the cash journals for deductions (such as advance salary) that are paid to the employee in advance.
