And I also understand that while in [New Payroll Entry->Get Employees->Create Salary Slip->Submit Salary Slip-> Create Bank Entry] flow, manual edit of a draft Salary Slip (say, after “Payroll Entry -> Get Employees -> Create Salary Slips”) doesn’t work. “Submit Salary Slip” overwrites the edited draft Salary Slip.
But, what I couldn’t understand why I cannot edit the Payroll Entry to select (or de-select) employees against whom processing needs to be done. As correctly mentioned here, segregation on basis of predefined filters (Department, Grade or Designation) is definitely possible, but not sufficient.
The Payroll Employee Detail embedded in Payroll Entry is read-only. With no edit of any rows allowed even before “Submit Salary Slips” is done.
Use-cases: There are cases where we need to manually edit certain employee’s salary slip before submission (*). As the process of PayrollEntry->SalarySlip->BankEntry doesn’t allow hand-modified Salary Slips, I would like to remove these employees from processing (Payroll Entry … ) and process them manually (Edit Salary Slip -> Submit -> Create Journal Entries).
(*) in particular a case where we wanted to reduce the tax of an employee for a particular month for his/her financial reasons. It might not be a correct way to increase in-hand, but that is a secondary point.
Anyone can point me to any literature or manual where this reasoning can be concluded?
Or, is it just something we haven’t come around developing yet?
