This may be a strange question, but for somebody who has just signed up for QBO Payroll, are they able to access the Payroll Settings and preferences before doing the Get Started steps to setup payroll? I ask for training purposes because it would be nice to go in and setup employee deductions, vacation/sick time, and detailed pay schedules before it has you start adding employees.
Welcome to the Intuit Community, @Nathan-K.
I appreciate you providing a screenshot for me to get a better picture of your concern.
You can access the Payroll Settings to set up pay schedules, vacation/sick/PTO, and deductions/contributions before adding your employees. Please make sure to assign the correct settings when you're ready to set up your employees in the program.
Once you've entered all the information you need, you can go to the Workers menu to complete the Get Started With Payroll process. Please see the screenshot below for your reference.
