How do I toggle an unscheduled payroll when I see no such toggle switch?

Step 4 of the help guide says to toggle the Off-cycle button but I see no such thing.

Hi there,

 

If you use the pay date (2 weeks) you'll still be able to use it again to process the other employees. To get Advanced Payroll, click the Apps from the left navigation menu > search for Advanced Payroll powered by Wagepoint > add the app. Once it's been installed on your account you'll be able to use Advanced Payroll. I encourage you to check the differences between Standard Payroll and Advanced Payroll using this link. Let me know if you have questions.

Hi there,

 

Happy to have you post in our Community. I'd be happy to share more info about unscheduled payroll.

 

I want to make sure I give you the correct info. For me to do this, are you using Standard Payroll or Advanced Payroll powered by Wagepoint?

Hi James

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. The only info I have from About QB is that we are on version 4.0.7 but nothing on payroll. How would I find that?

No worries. I'll help you figure this out. To find out which payroll you're using, click Employees and go through the steps you would when running. Standard Payroll will just come up as Payroll whereas Advanced Payroll will highlight that it's powered by Wagepoint. Let me know if you have questions.

For sure it is Standard as it just pops up as payroll and never mentions Wagepoint. So I would guess that the standard version won't allow unscheduled pay runs. Correct?

 

Thanks again

Thanks for confirming. You may have been following the steps for Advanced Payroll. Standard Payroll allows you to process as many payrolls as you need to. You'd just have to run payroll as you normally do, select the dates and go through the same process as though you were running the normal payroll. What happens when you try doing that on your end?

The help file in QBO does have Advanced Payroll solution only. When I run a normal payroll my only choices for dates are the bi-weekly scheduled dates on the drop-down menu.

You'd have to choose the Pay periods offered as those are based on how you set up your employee's pay period. However, you can change the Pay date. Let me know if you need help with that.

Hi James

 

But if I use up that pay date (2 weeks) then I can't use it again to process the other employees, correct? What would I need to do to get Advanced Payroll?
