If you need to pay an employee outside of your normal payroll cycle, you can do so by running a special payroll.


How to run a special payroll

  1. Log in to Fingercheck as an Administrator.

  2. Click the PAYROLL tab.

  3. Click Special Payroll.

    The Add Special Payroll pop-up window appears.

  4. In the Check Date field, enter the pay date.

  5. In the Run Number field, enter 1 if this is your only payroll for that check date. Increment this number if other payroll runs are scheduled on that date. 

  6. Leave the Status as Scheduled.

  7. Select the Period Begin and Period End dates you are paying for.

  8. In the Schedule Date field, enter a date that is at least two days prior to the Check Date.

  9. (Optional) To add other overrides, select the toggles under Block and Other (for example, to block taxes or direct deposits).
    Note: Tax Filing does not stop required taxes such as SSEC and Medicare. 

  10. Click Save.

    You are automatically brought to Step 4 (Payroll Entry), which starts off empty.

  11. In the pop-up window that appears, select the employees you want to pay, and click Add.

  12. Use the Payroll Grid to fill out hours and amounts, and click 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.

  13. Click Next and complete the payroll as usual.
