If you would like to pay an employee outside of your normal payroll cycle, you can do so by running a Special Payroll.

  • From the Fingercheck side menu, click “Payroll”. Then, on the Payroll Dashboard, click on “Special Payroll” in the "Quick Actions" subsection.
  • Enter your desired pay date under “Check Date”
  • Enter 1 under “Run Number” if this is your only payroll for that check date. Increment this number if there are other payroll runs on that date. 
  • Leave the “Status” as Scheduled.
  • Select the “Period Begin” and “Period End” dates you are paying for.
  • By “Schedule Date”, enter a date that is at least two days prior to the “Check Date”.
  • You can add additional overrides by clicking any of the sliders below the Schedule Date (i.e. to block taxes or direct deposits).
    Note: "Block Tax Filing" does NOT stop required taxes such as SSEC and Medicare
  • Once you are done, hit “Save”.
  • With Special Payroll, you will automatically be brought into Step 4, “Payroll Entry”, which will start off empty. Press the + button to add employees to your payroll.
  • Place a check in the boxes next to the names of the employees you want to pay, and then press Add.
  • Use the Payroll Grid to fill out their hours/amounts and then press Save Changes. You can also click the "Actions" icon (the 3 horizontal bars) next to each name to do things such as individually edit or delete checks.
  • Press Next to continue onto Preview Payroll section to get a line by line breakdown of your employee payrolls.
  • Complete the payroll as normal.
