What is the Main Schedule?

The Main Schedule determines the schedule to which a salaried employee's costs will be assigned.

Please note: If you do not assign a Main Schedule to your employees who are paid salary, their labour costs will not be applied to the schedule

How to assign employees a Main Schedule

What you need to do is assign a Main Schedule to your salary employees - this will decide which schedule that employee's costs will be applied to. There are two ways you can do this - either within the Work tab of employee's profiles OR you can do this in bulk using the Update Employee Profiles feature in Settings.

How to Assign Main Schedule within Payroll tab of Employee Profile

  1. Sign into

  2. Click into 'Employees' tab from navigation bar

  3. Select relevant employee to click into their profile

  4. Click into the 'Payroll' tab

  5. Scroll down to the 'Main Schedule' field

  6. Select relevant schedule from the drop down that appears. (Note that if the relevant schedule does not appear in the drop down, you must assign the employee to that schedule first using help article).

  7. Click save at bottom of the screen

How to Assign Main Schedule in bulk using the Update Employee Profiles feature

Please note: Only Account Administrators have access to do this.

  1. Sign into as an admin

  2. Click your name/email at the top right of the screen

  3. Select 'Settings' from the drop down menu

  4. Select 'Employees' on the left hand side

  5. Select 'Update Employee Profiles'

  6. Read through instructions in the blue box on the right hand side

  7. Choose field to update from drop down menu

  8. Download the Active Employee List CSV

  9. Update column G with the main schedule you wish to assign to each employee

  10. Save the file

  11. Select the CSV file that you have saved. Upload and click the 'Import' button

  12. If an employee has been assigned a Main Schedule that they have not yet been added to, the file will not go through and an error list will appear stating that 'Schedule not found under: Employee Schedule field'
