Provider Payroll and Employee Payroll Reports

  • We have added two types of reports to make HR management easier for users.
  • Provider Payroll has custom setup to allow you to setup providers salaries to be calculated automatically.
  • Employee Payroll will now provide employee hours in each payroll cycle in graphical or tabular manner for easy entry into your HR software (quickbooks, Wave Accounting, ADP, etc).
  • We plan to integrate these with their APIs in the future.

Bug Fixes
