  8. If you entered locations and departments for a client’s payroll in Accounting CS and you will split up payroll data entry among multiple NetClient CS users, you may designate a NetClient CS user as the payroll administrator so that NetClient CS user can facilitate the payroll data entry process at the client site. To designate this NetClient CS user the payroll administrator, mark the Payroll Administrator checkbox. Learn more about the payroll administrator role.
    When you export a Remote Data Entry worksheet, the payroll administrator receives an email message and is responsible for notifying each payroll entry person in each location and department that the worksheet is ready. When payroll entry is completed for each location and department, the payroll administrator receives email notification. The payroll administrator should determine that the worksheets have been completed for all locations and departments, and then click the Payroll Complete button to submit the payroll information to your firm.


    • If you split up payroll entry by location and department and you do not designate a payroll administrator, all messages regarding the completion of Remote Data Entry information will be sent to your firm.
    • You can designate only one payroll administrator per client.
  9. Do one of the following.
    • If the NetClient CS user is responsible for entering all payroll data for the selected client, leave the All Locations button selected under Access Permissions.
    • If the NetClient CS user is responsible for entering payroll data for a specific location and department (as set up in Accounting CS Payroll), click the Selected button under Access Permissions and select the locations and departments for which this NetClient CS user is responsible for entering payroll data.
