Pay Run Tasks

Follow

As a payroll manager, you get requests coming in all the time from staff that can potentially affect your pay runs. Ad hoc requests to add a child support payment for exampleor to change an employee bank account. Sometimes these things can be done in advance, but sometimes you need to adjust them in a pay run.

On top of this, you have the normal things you have to do like check the bank account for funds, review timesheets to ensure they’re all approved, check for employees taking more leave than they should and more. These are standard operating steps that can easily be forgotten or missed on each pay run.

Pay run tasks makes it easy to track all your payrun processing steps by allowing you to setup recurring and one off pay run tasks that can be applied to the entire pay run or specific employees.

From within the task management screen, youcan quickly add new tasks as well as review upcoming tasks for a given pay run

 

Getting Started
