My company has a new pay period cycle

If your company is changing it's pay period cycle, eg: moving from weekly to biweekly. Then use the + Pay Period button to create a new pay period cycle.


Who can create and edit pay period settings?

Only users with the Workyard role of Administrator can add and edit pay periods.

If I apply a change to an existing pay period setting how does this impact time cards?

This will change which time cards are grouped within each pay period cycle based on the new cycle and start date applied. If any changes are made to the start day of the work week, overtime calculations on previously generated time cards will not be updated. Please contact if you require these to be recalculated.
