PAYROLL

 

Warning on local of payroll

After you have finalised payroll and click the Lock button, you will get a dialog which includes the following:

  1. Payroll period
  2. Pay date
  3. Payroll roll number
  4. Number of payments within the payroll roll
  5. Payroll errors
    • This is errors within the payroll that are preventing the calculation of an employee to be done. Such errors need to be resolved in order to finalise payroll.
  6. Payslip change warnings
    • These are warnings related to changes that were done on the profiles or leave of employees within the payroll but such changes haven’t been reflected in the payslip calculator within this payroll. You may choose to ignore these warnings if you do not want these new updates to actually be reflected in this particular payroll calculation.

Leave period dates

When creating a payroll roll, you may choose the leave date period that would determine which leave requests should fall within this payroll period. 

You can specify these dates by clicking the blue “Specify Leave Period” toggle button. You will be able to modify these dates at any time as long as the payroll is unlocked, by going to the payroll list and clicking the Edit button (pencil icon).

If no leave period dates are selected, by default the leave period dates will be the payroll period dates.

If you do select the leave period, a note will be automatically added to each payslip in the following format: “Includes leave for dates between {date} and {date}”. You may edit the note through the Add Employee button within the payroll roll.

When the leave period is selected, the leave that is then added to that month’s payroll will only be that which falls within the leave period dates and not the payroll period dates.

 

Example:

Payroll period dates: 01/01/2020 - 31/01/2020

Leave period dates: 15/12/2019 - 15/01/2020

 

Any leave booked after 15/01/2020 will not be considered for this payroll even though it falls within the payroll period.



Bulk uploads - Basic Hours

You can upload Basic hours in bulk by filling out the Bulk upload template. A template is to be downloaded for every client and payroll to which you would like to upload your basic hours to. This is because the template itself would automatically include the payroll number and a list of employees added to the payroll.

Please note that the employees need to be first added to the payroll in order to download the template.

LEAVE

Leave request notification email

When more than one person has the Approve Leave permission for an employee, a Unit or Global, you can set who is to receive the email notification. 

 

To do so:

  1. Go to the profile of the employee who has Approve Leave permission
  2. Click the burger menu (three dots on the employee dashboard profile section)
  3. Click Email notifications
  4. Here you will see a list of Units and/or groups for who the employee in questions has Approve Leave permission
  5. Tick the relevant employees and/or Units for who this employee should get email notification regarding Leave requests

 

Note: The employee will still be able to approve leave of those employees/units that are unticked. We are simply setting which emails this employee should receive.
