You can view all the days of your pay periods in the timesheet rather than just one week. When you do this you'll also see the number of hours scheduled for that pay period. You can use this to compare the number of hours you've entered with the number of hours expected for the pay period.

Let's say employees are paid on the 15th and last day of the month. In that case, there would be two pay periods. The first one would be from 1 --> 15, and the second would be 16 --> the last day of the month. Set these up, and employees can use them to view hours in the timesheet.

Pay periods are also shown as date ranges for reporting. That means you can quickly choose a pay period date range to see all the time and expenses for employees.

The good news is that there are no special rules for pay periods. You set them any way you like. You will need to set them up for future date ranges so they automatically appear on timesheets and report when the dates arrive.



Hey, business owners! My name’s Mike and I’m with Standard Time®.

Does your business operate on pay periods? I know mine does.

You know the 1st through the 15th is one and the 16th through 31st.

In Standard Time these are called ‘Pay Periods.’ And they’re configurable.
Look here!

You can view each timesheet by week or by pay period.

Let’s say we configured this one to view it by pay period.

Each employee sees the total scheduled hours for that pay period, and their actual hours.

So this allows them to compare expected hours with actual hours.

It’s just another way Standard Time helps eliminate human error.

Pretty nice, huh? I thought you’d say that!

I’m Mike. Give it a try, let me know what you think!
