Setting Up Pay Periods

TimeForge will allow you to manage your labor, employee schedules, and time and attendance in the way that works best for your business. If you want to manage different departments differently, TimeForge will let you.

However, to ease the administration of staff schedules, payroll exports, and labor statistics, TimeForge supports the concept of pay periods. Each location, store, or unit can have a specific pay period. Payroll periods can be:

 - Weekly, where staff are paid every week

 - Bi-Weekly, where staff are paid every other week (common in many hospitality and restaurant businesses)

 - Monthly, where staff are paid on a specific date (common in many professional and teaching businesses)

 - On the 1st and 15th, where there are always two pay periods in a single month

After setting up pay periods, you will be able to quickly and easily export payroll, approve sick, vacation, and PTO time, and run reports that correspond to your pay periods.

Here are the simple steps to set up payroll periods in your account.
