Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

For details, see CSA license expiration 2017 – frequently asked questions.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

  1. When the Payroll Check Entry dialog is active, open the Data Entry Options dialog by choosing Edit > Options or choosing Options from the F3 or right-click context menu.
  2. From the Calculation profile drop-down list, choose either the Default profile or a custom profile you have created.
  3. To define one or more sets of calculation options that will be commonly used in payroll check entry for this client, click the Edit profile button to display the Calculation Profiles dialog. See Calculation Profiles [Setup menu] for additional information.
  4. Choose All employees, Do not autoprompt (default), or Non-salaried employees only from the Autoprompt Emp ID drop-down list. (As a timesaver, if All employees or Non-salaried employees only is chosen, you will be prompted for the next ID after one check is entered.)
  5. If you prefer to enter employees' worktime in hours and minutes (instead of hours and decimal fractions), select the Convert hours to decimal checkbox.
  6. If you want to sort by employee name (instead of by employee ID) during payroll check entry, select the Sort by employee name checkbox.
  7. As a timesaver, select the checkbox in the Fields to disable group box for each field you want to automatically skip in the Payroll Check Entry window.
  8. As a timesaver, select the checkbox in the Columns to skip group box for each column you want to skip in the Payroll Check Entry window.
