i got items set up for reported cash tips ans reported cash tips offset then i decide to run paychecks but i am not seeing anywhere where i plug the tips in for the employee. I got these boxes set up in the employee record but the employee tips varry by week so i cant set a fix amount
Please learn from this input. This is exactly what they Cannot do for Tips, since tips Vary: "After you set up these items, you can add them to the employee paychecks under Other Payroll Items. Enter the amount for each item in the Rate column."
In Run Payroll (Pay Employees), the First screen, where you checkmark Who is being paid, you can customize the columns here, or single click each name to open their Paycheck Details View. That's where you input Values, such as Tips.
