Step One: Set Up Pay Period

Pay Periods are the time period used to generate the Payroll Report.  How often do you want to run the Payroll report?  When do you typically pay your staff -- weekly, twice a month, monthly?  We recommend setting up your Pay Period to match your payment schedule.

1. Go to Setup>Staff>Payroll Reports. Upon your initial visit to Payroll Reports, you will have the opportunity to set your Pay Periods.  Please note, once you set your Pay Period, it cannot be changed later.


2. Select the Begin Date for your first Pay Period and the duration of each period.  This will generate a sample schedule for you to review. If you select "Every 2 Weeks," you may then customize the time frame of that pay period (screenshot below.) Review the "Proposed Schedule" to ensure the appropriate dates.


3. Click Create Pay Period.
