The Rules set in your compensation plan define the conditions an Associate must meet to earn volume or Rank. Use the GUI (Grid Editor) tab to dynamically configure the default Unilevel Monthly and Weekly compensation plans provided by DirectScale. This tab allows you to configure the following Rules:

  • Rank names

  • Qualification volume amounts

  • Generation bonus percentages

  • Team Commission percentages

  • Check matching bonus percentages

For more details and definitions, see DirectScale Default Compensation Plan Explained.

Grid Editor Features

Compensation Plan elements
  1. Template Name and Revision Dropdowns: The Template Name dropdown is where you select a previously saved template. A Template Revision is a specific version of a template. Your cloned templates appear in this dropdown list.

  2. XML Template Features: These features allow you to customize your commission template. Some of the steps to use their functionality will need to be completed on the XML tab. Click below to learn more about these features:

  3. Custom Content Notification: This notification appears when the compensation plan selected has custom configurations that the GUI’s UI can’t display.

  4. Period Type Dropdown: Changes the template’s Volume Range to the basic configurations of a Monthly or Weekly compensation plan.

  5. Section Enable Checkbox: When checked, two features are enabled. These are:

    1. The section fields display, allowing you to configure the section to your preference.

    2. Adds the section’s default template XML to the compensation plan template. If it is disabled, the section’s default template XML that was added will be removed.

        The Enroller Bonus, Fast Start Bonus, and Kpi sections are currently being configured and won’t display on the GUI tab. However, when enabled, they still add their default XML to the compensation plan on the XML tab.

    If a section in the selected compensation plan has configurations the UI can display, the section will automatically be enabled when the template is selected.

Filling out the sections, the Grid Editor dynamically changes the default template XML on the XML tab and vice versa.

When your template is configured to your preference, remember to Save it.
