Update an employees pay run details | HR Employee File


As an organisation, you will have some employees who may need to submit timesheets for their hours worked, and other employees who do not need to undertake this task. You may also have some employees who do not need syncing over to your payroll platform, so having a simple way to manage these employee requirements will reduce your HR administration.

The Pay Run Details feature allows you to manage each employees unique setup by allowing you to select whether they do not need to submit timesheets, submit them only as an exception, or they submit a timesheet for all work they undertake within your organisation. You can also use this feature to select whether the employee syncs over to your chosen payroll platform.

The payroll platform allows you to create and manage your work types. You need to complete these steps first before you can apply them to an employee file. To read further details on how to create a work type, refer to the following article.

So you have now updated your employees pay run details and you are now wondering what next can I do. There are two recommendations I would make on this front and they are:

  • HR Employee File: Certifications This feature allows your employees to complete their assigned certifications, update the data if it expires, and view a history log of their uploaded documentation.
  • HR Employee File: Banking Details This feature allows you to add an employee bank account, specify the account number, and how much to pay into each of their accounts.
