Post Accumulators can be created and added as a final review to adjust hours after initial allocations have been made. These may be necessary when the final number of hours or the pay code of those hours depends on the sum of hours over the pay period and/or other factors. Think of Post Accumulators as a way to “adjust” the initial results of the regular accumulators.
Selecting the Post Accumulator link opens the list of established post accumulators.
Each Post Accumulator in the list is displayed by name, created by who and when, and the status. Clicking the Edit icon opens the Edit Post Accumulator window allowing the user to update.
Select the History icon to view all changes made to the listed accumulator.

Clicking the Add + button opens the New Post Accumulator window.

Select any Associated Input, Adjustment (Pay Codes that are adjusted when the criteria is met), or Override Input Pay Codes (Pay Codes that will ignore the filter, when used), and/or Employee Classifications components to include by clicking the + Add button in the associated section.
The Impacted section of the page alerts users to the potential impact changes to the current component may have while editing, such as Pay Rule Sets and Accumulators.
