In Payroll Define Lists, you can add and edit custom event descriptions. This is helpful for recording and tracking events like salary increases, employee reviews, benefits, and hire information. You can use these custom event types to track events on the Events tab in Add/Edit Employees or print the Employee Events List report in Payroll Reports.

After adding event types, you can edit them if you need to or deactivate or delete them. You can also edit the Reprimand and Accommodation event types. You cannot delete the permanent event types (Hire, Exit, Evaluation, Raise, Comment, and Future Review), but you can edit their descriptions to meet your organization's needs or deactivate them.
