Configure Payslip Messages to Improve Communication with Employees

Many of the communications that you wish to send to your employees do not warrant a formal letter. You can create a payslip message to inform your employees of short but important messages using infotype 0128, which allows you to print messages on your employee payslips.
Key Concept

The HR Form Editor, transaction PE51, allows you to copy, create, and edit forms. It works with many applications and consists of a central GUI in which you develop HR forms.

HR departments communicate with employees primarily via formal letters. Some messages, however, require only a line or two to inform either all or some of the workforce. For example, you could tell employees who their HR contacts are, warn them of the last dates to sign up for a particular benefit, or wish them “Happy Holidays.”

Formal communications are too cumbersome for these messages, so the HR department often overlooks them. However, all versions of SAP provide a simple means of distributing this information using infotype 0128 (notifications) and payslip messages. This is standard SAP functionality available to anyone who uses the HR Form Editor (transaction PE51) to configure payslips.
