Timecard Batch Edit

Within a batch is a list of one or more employees being paid, with a Payroll Date selected for the pay period and accounting. Highlighting an employee shows their timecard codes, benefits and deductions for this batch, below the batch employee list.

Some of the data like tax, EI and CPP can be edited from this grid for Unposted timecards. As an employee is added to the batch their withholdings, deductions and benefits are automatically calculated. When amounts of pay are added they are re-calculated.

Irregular timecards

Multiple timecards for the same employee can be created for the same pay period, such as for bonuses or commissions. These additional timecards will be marked with an Irregular status, and any Benefits and Deductions associated with the employee will default as zero, but can be modified as needed. It is typically recommended to enter irregular timecards after the regular timecard for the pay period has been entered and posted, if possible.


When editing a timecard, you can access the reports toolbar button to print either payroll checks or the direct deposit slips for electronic deposits. These reports can also be printed immediately after posting a timecard batch.

Payroll Cheque – Bottom / Center / Top – Prints a 3-part check form for selected or all employees within the timecard, with a check portion and two identical sections with employee timecard income and deductions. The reports differ only with the location of the check portion within the form.

Payroll Direct Deposit Slip – Prints a 2-part form for selected or all employees within the timecard, with a check portion and a section with employee timecard income and deductions. This report is typically emailed to employees as a PDF attachment, rather than printed to paper.
