First Time Payroll Setup
Payroll frequency can be defined, allowing users with timekeeper report access to export the Timecard for a selected payroll cycle.
To define payroll frequency:
- Go to Settings > Payroll > Manage Payroll
- Click Payroll Cycle Setting button
- Choose your preferred frequency and Day of the week the pay periods start
- Depending on your selection, there will be additional fields to specify the day of the week or date of the month that each pay period begins
- Click Add Payroll Cycle Setting button
Creating more Payroll Cycles
Once payroll frequency is defined as in the First Time payroll Setup above, create payroll cycles by clicking the "Add New Payroll Cycle" button. Each time this button is clicked, an additional cycle is added to the list below. It's recommended to add several cycles at one time.
I don't see Payroll on my account
Go to the Security Settings for the user and select Timekeeper Manager. Save the security settings. Log out of JM and back in. The user should now see Payroll under the Account menu.
Some JM features are only available on some JM plans. If you do not see this feature and wish to use it, contact support for more information on your current plan.
Payroll settings allows you to control how calculated employee time is rounded up or down.
Go to Settings > Payroll > Rounding
You can choose to:
Round down – Enter a number here to allow for max hours. For example, if you enter 4 hours, the employee time will be capped at 4 even if they worked over 4 hours.
Round up – Enter a number here to allow for minimum hours. For example, if you enter 1 hour, even if an employee worked only 30 minutes their time reflected will be one hour.
The settings selected in Rounding will impact actual hours in the Timecard report (Reports > Time > Timecard).
