Using our Auto Run Payroll feature, you can now auto-run your payroll with zero manual labor required! Simply set a pay run schedule and like clockwork, Fingercheck360 will automatically run payroll moving forward, auto-calculating your employee time cards, and processing your company's entire batch of payroll data. Enabling Auto Run Payroll takes just a few steps:

  • Log onto your Fingercheck account and go to the "Payroll" tab.
  • From the menu, click on "Auto Run Payroll."
  • To set up your company's Auto Run Payroll, you have two settings you can use alone or in combination with one another. We designed these options to give you total control over the way you want Auto Run Payroll to work for your company.
     
    To auto-run payroll for your current payroll run only, slide the toggle button to the right next to the first option. To auto-run payroll for all future payroll runs, slide the toggle button next to the second option. To auto-run payroll for the current payroll and all future payrolls, slide the toggle button to the right for both.
     
    The third setting is a "Payroll Preview" alert you can set up to enable a comprehensive, detailed payroll report to be sent to you before payroll is processed. This can prove invaluable in briefing you on the costs of your payroll ahead of time. All you need to do is toggle the button on and a report will be sent to you automatically before each payroll cycle is run.

These options offer you flexible scheduling regarding which payrolls you'd like to run automatically. If you want to schedule Auto Run Payroll during a week when you're out of town, you can do so and not have to worry about disabling it for the future. If you want Auto Run Payroll to take effect after the current pay cycle, you can do that too.

  • Once you click "Continue," you a pop-up will appear, requesting confirmation to enable payroll. Type the word "YES" to continue and then click "OK."
  • A pop-up should appear letting you know the process has completed successfully.

What to expect once you've enabled Auto Run Payroll: The day payroll is due to be processed, you'll get an email listing the total cash required, and a follow-up email confirming your payroll has been run. If there are any issues preventing Fingercheck360 from running payroll, you'll receive a warning email. If these factors still aren't corrected by 4:30 PM EST that day, Fingercheck360 won't be able to auto-run payroll. However, we will notify you in time for you to manually run payroll and make your payday deadline.


Proof-checking hours: In order to avoid having payroll run automatically without reviewing your employees' hours, we suggest setting up a daily time card report to review your time card data at the end of each day. That way, when it's time to run payroll, you'll have approved all the data ahead of time.
 
If you can think of other uses for the time you normally spend manually running payroll, we are confident that you will love our new payroll feature. Not only is it easy to set up, but it also keeps you in the loop as payroll is processed, ensuring that you won't miss a beat
