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.
