This article provides an example of how to use the Enable auto pay distribution by % checkbox, which is in the Locations and Departments section of the Setup > Employees screen > Main tab, and shows how the distribution affects an employee's payroll checks.

Example: Enable the auto pay distribution percentage

In this example, your grocery store client has an employee who consistently works 75% of his time in the bakery and 25% of his time in the deli.  You can set up the employee in the Locations and Departments section, as shown below, to have the application automatically split all distributions between the correct locations/departments during payroll check entry for the employee. This includes the gross pay, deductions, taxes, employer contributions, and employer taxes.

Grocery example

Enter the payroll check

Enter the hours for the employee as usual.

Enter payroll information

View the distribution of hours and amounts for the pay item

When you click the Ellipsis button, you can see that the application has automatically distributed the hours and amounts 75%/25% between the departments.
