Thanks for coming back, servalstudios.

 

I appreciate your time following the steps provided by Steve_C. The instructions will also help you move last year's data to the new class. I've got some sample screenshots below for reference.

 

For this screenshot I have the old class, which all paychecks are assigned to and the one I just created:

 

 

Next, I updated the class following the steps above and selected the Starting date. 

 

 

Finally, run a report for the new class by following these steps:

 

  1. Go to the Gear > All Lists.
  2. Select Classes.
  3. Click the Run report link of the new class.
  4. Choose the Report period and click Run report.

 

 

I'm also adding this article for more details: Payroll accounting preferences.

 

Please let me know if you need something else. I'll be around to help you some more.

Hi servalstudios. To assign the classes to your employees, you will need to edit your payroll settings. It's actually quick and easy and I can guide you through in just a few steps. Here's how:

  1. Select the Gear Icon in the top right corner
  2. After that, select Payroll Settings under the Your Company tab
  3. Choose Accounting.

  4. In the Classes section, select I use different classes for different employees.
  5. Click on OK.
  6. In the Preferences - Employee Classes section, assign a class for each employee. 
  7. Click on OK.

You'll be prompted as well as to select a date for the changes to take effect from. Just select the desired date and everything will automatically be reclassified. Let me know if this helps, and feel free to leave a reply if you need anything else.Have a great rest of your day

Sorry, not what I asked. I have already done this.

 

I want to move last year's paychecks to this class. Right now they are unassigned.
