Set up your office employees for Office Timesheets so you can track working hours and run payroll.


Things to know

  • If you use Payroll Sign-off, make sure managers have their permissions enabled to review payroll for the employees they manage.

  • Set up timesheet codes to track time for all non-job events used by your office employees.

  • You can set or update employee payroll settings in bulk by going to Settings > People > Payroll and clicking on Employee Payroll Settings. See Manage employee payroll settings for details.
