The Pay start date is appearing as a later date than the pay end date.
We pay fortnightly and it comes up as a weeks pay dates.
Any ideas

Hi Kerrie

It sounds like the pay periods haven't been kept in check during the Payroll process each fortnight.

Generate & modify a report to check this:

  • Go to "Find ..." (Under Edit - along top toolbar)
  • On the "Advanced" tab ....

Select Transaction type in the Filters list & choose "Paycheque" as well as Detail Level, "Summary Only" (Can choose a Date range too if necessary)

  • Click on "Find", then "Report"
  • Click on "Modify Report" (top LHS)
  • On the "Display" tab ...
    Select/deselect (tick/untick) relevant columns:
    • Scroll down the list & select "Date From & "Date To" 
    • You can also select “Gross Payments” to display both the net & gross columns
    • Deselect “Account”, “Clr”, Split” & “Balance” (You can also just “Close” these columns in the report itself, by left-clicking & dragging across each column from the diamond separator between each heading)  
  • Under “Total by” select “Two week” in the dropdown & “Sort in” Ascending order”.  Click on “OK”
  • You can move the columns around by hovering over each heading - until you see the hand symbol - then left-click & dragging the column across the page to insert elsewhere as       indicated by the red insertion arrow
  • Check that everyone’s Pay in each grouping has the correct & same pay period (Date From & Date To)
  • Any that are incorrect can be amended by drilling down into the pay, clicking on “Paycheque Detail” & correcting the Pay Period dates.  Don’t forget to “OK” then “Save & Close” out of each one you change, to retain
You can give this - or in fact, any - Report a specific name & rememorise for future use if necessary:
  • In the report, click on “Modify Report”
  • On the “Header/Footer” tab, edit/update the “Report Title” text to a name of your choosing then click on “OK”
  • Click on “Memorise” to “save” this report (including all your modifications/formatting) to your “Memorised Reports List”

You can choose to create “Groups” of memorised reports under specific headings with the option to generate all/some reports all in one go
