Following these steps, you can effectively process payroll for your business, ensuring accurate and timely payments to your employees.

  1. Log in to Fingercheck as an Administrator.

  6. Select Pay Period: You can select the pay period for which you are processing payroll, the pay schedule will update automatically.

  7. Click Next to continue.

  8. Time Review: If you use Fingercheck for your time and attendance needs, you can preview the employees’ hours, lock time sheets, and update an employee’s time card.

  10. Data Validation: You can review exceptions, requests, and alerts to any timesheets that may still require approval from employees and supervisors.

  11. Click Next to continue.

  12. Click OK to transfer time card details to the payroll entry.

    Please note: the payroll at this point will save your progress going forward. So if a change is made on the employee’s time card after this point, that new data would need to be pulled into the payroll with the refresh icon.

  14. To add an additional check or edit an employee’s check, click the hamburger icon next to their name, and select an option from the menu that appears.

    The edit check screen allows you more options to set up an individual employee’s check. These options include blocking scheduled earnings and deductions, direct deposit, employee taxes, and labor allocation.

  15. Click Next from the Payroll Entry screen to continue.

  16. Click OK to continue to the payroll preview.

  17. Preview Payroll: Review the total amount of money you will pay your employees.
