Scenarios and comp reviews

Comp reviews depend on scenarios in order to function properly. Consider that a comp review is really just a type of scenario (or a collection of scenarios) where a set of compensation changes are proposed.

As such, when creating or viewing a comp review, you'll notice there's a section for scenarios included in review.

Adding a scenario to a comp review

When adding a scenario to a comp review, it all begins with a CQL query. In the example below, we are indicating that anyone matching the sales department filter is eligible for a comp review. You can use CQL to narrow down this list as much as needed.

After inputting comp review eligibility, the next step is to select the managers that should be invited to this comp review. Selected managers are automatically added to the approval workflow.

The next step in the workflow requires a budget to be set for each scenario added to the comp review. The budget is used in determining the allowances for each comp review.
