If an employee has been paid on the existing pay schedule, you're unable to change the pay frequency schedule. However, you can have multiple pay schedules, so you have the choice of selecting between weekly and monthly. Let me show how.
First, set up the pay schedule by following the steps outlined below:
Click the Employees menu, then go to the Employee tab.
Select the employee's name.
From the Pay Schedules drop-down, click Add schedule.
Enter the following: pay schedule name, next pay date, and days you are paying your employees.
When you're ready to run your next payroll, you will have all the pay schedules frequencies displayed.
If the employee hasn't been paid, you can change the pay schedule directly to their profile. Here's how:
On the left pane, select Employees menu.
Go to the Employees tab, then click the name of the employee under this pay schedule.
Select Pay Run Defaults.
In the Default Pay Run Settings, click the Pay Schedule drop-down and select Monthly.
