Wage Subsidies: Configuring the Wage Subsidy BDF's

Why is this important?

The Wage Subsidy Module has the ability to associate the new Wage Subsidy Request to the ESS Status or existence of the Wage Subsidy Request within ESS. With the option to prevent Payment Schedules being added against a Wage Subsidy Request until this is approved in ESS, along with filters to identify the status of the request in ESS, we recommend that this is configured prior to using the Wage Subsidy Request Module.
