You might want to set up additional frequencies for how often deductions are taken from paychecks. By default, Fingercheck includes an Every Payroll frequency, but employees might have other regular deductions (for example, monthly life insurance).

How to set up a frequency

  1. Log in to your Fingercheck account as an Administrator.

  2. Click the SETUP tab > Payroll > Frequencies.

  3. Click Add.

    The Details screen appears.

  4. From the Frequency Pattern drop-down list, select a frequency. (Monthly is a common frequency.)

  5. From the Frequency Date Option drop-down list, select CheckDate.

  6. Leave the Month field empty.

  7. From the Include Weeks of Month, select the week of the pay period where the deduction should occur. (First or Last are common.)

  8. Click Save.

    When you create a Deduction code, the frequency you created will appear in the Frequency field's drop-down list.
