We understand the changes made to Salary Structure, the introduction of doctypes Salary Detail and Salary Component. However, we notice that on Salary Slip, the old way of Salary Slip Earning and Salary Slip Deduction remains.
We would like to check, if this will be consistent moving forward, especially with regard to Salary Slip. We currently have some customizations, between Salary Structure and Salary Slip, which needs to be edited, with regard to the current changes. Thus, we would like to check if there would be any more similar changes to Salary Slip, so that we can edit our customizations, to prepare for version 7.
I am really unable to understand the new changes in the HR salary in V7 2 new tables have been introduced namely “Salary Component” and “Salary Detail” but the old tables are also there and this is kind of creating a confusion at my end as to what purpose the 2 new table serve.
I would like to understand as how the changes are being incorporated so that I could make my changes accordingly.
I thought that with the new tables old tables would be deleted namely:
Salary Component should have subsumed Salary Structure Earnings and Salary Structure Deductions tables and similarly Salary Detail should have subsumed Salary Slip Earnings and Salary Slip Deductions Table am I missing something since I don’t see these tables being deleted.
In my pull request (https://github.com/frappe/erpnext/pull/5938), it will create columns based on custom fields. But as multiple tables are merged into one, it is not possible to copy the data from old to new, please copy the values manually. Thanks again.
