Assigning a Deduction Recipient to an Earning or Deduction at Employee level using the “Payee Data > Net Pay / Recipient Elections > Add Deduction Recipients” Component works, but there’s an easier way that improves usability for payroll administrators.
Here’s how to configure a solution that allows Deduction Recipients to be selected from Element Assignment, using a simple Formula and “Configuration by Element”:

A simple Formula is required to return the Variable to the Deduction:
The Formula is then added to the Deduction, Recipient Formula:
Now we configure “Configuration by Element”:
Select the Deduction and add the new Variable.
Select “Edit Type”, “Prompt” and select a View to be used. In this example the delivered View named “RECIPIENT_I_VW” as been used, but you can create your own as required.
The finished result! Deduction Recipients can now be selected directly from Element Assignment.
