M_PY_DNP_BALANCE_DISTRICT query was updated 08/17/18

posted Aug 17, 2018, 1:19 PM by Peyri Herrera

It was found that the query M_PY_DNP_BALANCE_DISTRICT was reporting incorrect balance amounts. The query was corrected today, August 17, 2018, and will now report the correct amounts. If you ran this query previously, it is recommended that you run it again.

Please keep in mind that this does not impact DNP balances that were automatically placed on the payline, nor does it impact the DNP balances maintained by the system. Those are correct.

If you have any further questions, please submit a HEAT Self-Service ticket at

PROBLEM: The “short URLs” for ESS ( from multiple browsers) and Portal ( from Internet Explorer) takes you to a screen that says “Error No Access to: /” or does not redirect to the login screen. The redirects appear to have stopped working.

FIX: Use the “long URLs” for ESS ( and Portal (

Stopping, adding, or changing Additional Pays

posted Aug 6, 2018, 12:19 PM by Barbara Thiss

Stopping Additional Pays
To stop an additional pay, it is highly recommended that you enter the last day of the effective month for the End Date, and also take off the check from OK to Pay flag on the Additional Pay screen.

Example: To stop an additional pay from paying in August 2018, set the End Date = 7/31/2018 and remove the OK to Pay flag.
Create Additional Pay screen

Adding or Changing Additional Pays
Additional Pay Overrides are only evaluated during the Paysheet Creation Process. If you have made any additions or changes on the Additional Pay and Additional Pay Override pages after the Paysheet Creation Process, please audit the Paylines to ensure you have the expected outcome.

August paysheets will be available on Wed, 08/08/18

posted Aug 3, 2018, 4:22 PM by Peyri Herrera

Based on a poll taken by the Post Implementation Team, the August on-cycle paysheets will be available to districts on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 (not Monday, August 6 as is stated on the payroll calendar). This is being done to allow districts extra time to complete any necessary data changes due to summer month hires and adjustments.
