After you have completed your payroll, follow these steps to Publish Pension Communications:

•Click ‘Pension Dashboard’ then ‘Publish’
This can also be accessed via 4 – Practice Pension Details | Auto Enrolment Details | Pay Period Dashboard or 4 – Practice Pension Details | Auto Enrolment Details | Print Pension Reports | Print Auto Enrolment Reports | Publish Pension Communications.
This screen displays the pension communications that are to be sent or have already been sent to IRIS OpenEnrol, depending on the options selected in the View box at the top of the screen.
By default, the screen shows all the currently available unpublished data. You can also view previously published data if you need to. The data is sorted alphabetically, by surname and forename.
You can reorder the grid by clicking on a column heading. Clicking again will toggle the order ascending to descending etc.
If there is no unpublished data the screen will display the first page of the most recent published data in alphabetical surname/forename order.
• Code – the employee code
• Name – the surname then forename
• Date – the date the communication was created
• Description – describes the type of letter to be sent
• Period – the year, frequency and pay period e.g. tax year 2014/2015 Week 23 would appear as 2014-2015 W 23
• Sent – tick box showing whether a communication has been published to IRIS OpenEnrol
• From Date and To Date – these can both be blank or either can be blank or both can be populated:
• If both dates are blank, all data matching the criteria in the View box will be displayed
• If the From Date is blank all data up to the To Date will be displayed
• If the To Date is blank all data from the From Date will be displayed
• If the From Date and To Date are both populated only data in that date range will be populated
• The From Date and To Date can be the same day
Click this button to reset the screen to its initial state. Both dates will become blank. The View field will be reset to Unpublished or Published depending on what was set when the screen was first opened. The grid display will be refreshed and the Refresh button will be disabled.
The Refresh button is disabled until you change the View selection or enter a date range. The text, Click Refresh to update view, will appear when the Refresh button is enabled. After clicking Refresh the button will be disabled and the text, Click Refresh to update view, will not be visible.
You need to click the Refresh button if you make changes to the View selection or the From and To dates
Click ‘Print’ for a printed listing of pension communications. You can choose to print All, Unpublished or Published, a Date Range and selected employees using the Selection button.
This prints a summary of the communications, not the actual letters
Each single row in the grid can be highlighted. Multiple rows can be highlighted using standard windows functions e.g. CTRL & click or SHIFT & click. Highlight the rows you want to delete then click the Delete button.
When you are ready to send the unpublished pension communications to IRIS OpenEnrol you need to click the Publish button. Publish will always send all unpublished data for the current company. This will send the communications to the IRIS OpenEnrol portal and directly to employees with email addresses in their Employee Details.
This option allows you to republish data that has already been published previously, for a date range you select.
Recalculating the payroll will re-assess any actions relating to Automatic Enrolment or IRIS OpenEnrol. If a payroll is recalculated, employees will be reassessed, if communications have not been sent, they can be amended or deleted before the pay period is complete.
