Overview

Editing Pay Periods provide more flexibility to Account Holders and Managers with Payroll privileges. Editing Pay Periods ensures your account does not have overlapping, duplicate, or gaps between Pay Periods.

Things to know before you begin

  • At this time, this feature is only accessible via the web app (on a computer).
  • By default, only Account Holders have the ability to Manage Payroll. Account Holder must edit a Manager’s User Access Privileges and turn on “Can Manage Payroll” to provide Managers the ability to edit Pay Periods.
  • If the previous pay period is closed or finalized, the system will force the next new pay period on the following date to prevent a gap between pay periods.
  • The longest pay period can be up to 2 months.
  • If you need to change the type/length of your pay period, the account holder or a manager with “Can Manage Payroll” enabled can edit the pay period length in the account’s attendance settings.
