How do I track time donated to a charity?

Welcome to the Community, @fourhokez. I'm glad I've got to answer your first post. 


You can use the timesheet to track employee's time donated to charity. This is useful for your business when entering or editing a single day or event at a time. 


So, Instead of going to the Payroll section, you enter the time data in the Timesheet section. Here's how: 

  1. Click the +New button in the left navigation bar.
  2. Under Employees choose between Single Time Activity or Weekly Timesheet.
  3. In the Who's time are you tracking for field, select the name of the employee.
  4. Select the pay type in the field provided.
  5. Enter the time.
  6. Click Save and choose.


The total hours will automatically move to the employee's profile after saving. Then, it will show up when you create a paycheck. Please note that the period on the timesheet data should be within the pay period of the payroll.


For additional reference, read through this article: Set up timesheets in Payroll.
