The Payroll Report is a summary payroll report for an individual or department for a given date range. All payroll and payroll marked as cost sharing are included in this report.

This report has two views, which can be toggled above the results table: Pay Period and Account.

  • By default, you’ll be viewing Account view, which will show the 100% total payroll for the employee broken out by project.
  • Pay Period View will switch the report to show the employee’s 100% payroll for the period broken out by pay period.

Note: The Pay Type column will display additional details about the payroll transaction, if any exist.
