How to set up and edit your pay period

Pay periods define the frequency with which your payroll reports are run. You can choose from the following:

  • Weekly

  • Bi-weekly

  • Four-weekly

  • Monthly

  • Twice-monthly

  • Last (x) of the month

  • Second to last (x) of the month

  • 4/4/5

Monthly and twice-monthly pay periods do not calculate overtime automatically. Please contact Customer Support if you run a monthly or twice-monthly pay period and want to calculate overtime automatically. 

To edit a pay period, go to your Account Settings and scroll down to Time & Attendance. Here you can click the 'Change Frequency' button.

Note: Changing your pay frequency will not delete any individual attendance records. All of your employee's clocking in and out times and hours will stay the same. However, all pay periods (past and future) and any Payroll Exports you access will appear under the new format you input. The old format will no longer be accessible.

If you've made any manual changes to these records; such as Hours Paid, Overtime, or Total Pay, then these changes will also be lost on the new timesheets and payroll reports.
