Hello, gina_vu.


What you'll want to do is skip your payroll for this scheduled pay period. 


In order skip a payroll, you'll need to manually edit the dates to the next period:

  1. Choose your Payroll Schedule under the Create Paychecks table.
  2. Click the Payroll Schedule button at the bottom of the table.
  3. Choose Edit Schedule. This will open the Edit Payroll Schedule window.
  4. Change the dates for What is the pay period end date and what date should appear on paychecks for this pay period.
  5. Click OK.

Once you do this, you should see the correct dates under the pay period that you're skipping. 


If you need further guidance on this, or help with anything else. I'm just a click away!
