ShiftPlanning aims to centralize the activity around schedule making, time-clocking, and related payroll processing. As part of this effort, we’ve recently rolled out Payroll-specific reporting. You can find payroll reports in the ‘reports’ tab of the application. In order to aid in payroll reporting, ShiftPlanning allows managers to add wage information to staff profiles.

Default Wage & Currency

After selecting the appropriate staff profile, visit ‘edit details’ to see the wage field. Wages can also be bulk uploaded as part of the staff import. Payroll settings (Found under account setting in the admin tab) offer the option to set a default currency from a list of the most common.

Position Specific Wages

In ShiftPlanning, the payroll options allow for managers to change the wage and assign paycards for each position offering great flexibility. Therefore, if someone is paid more for example for closing the store than the general shift, the manager can specify the differential. Position specific wages are set by visiting the ‘payroll’ section of the staff profile.

Rate Cards & Overtime

Rate cards allow for managers to assign different levels of pay based on day and time. For example, if weekend hours are time and a half, the manager simply has to change the rate card to “150%” for these hours (the default is 100%). This will make the pay 150% of the base wage set in the staff profile. Overtime rules allow managers to set changes based on the number of hours (i.e, 150% of base wage after 8hrs worked).

The Scheduler

With the employee schedule maker, ShiftPlanning provides inline information for costing data that updates in realtime. Therefore, managers can keep up with wages totals while putting the schedule together. Inline costing totals can be see in both the employee and positions views.
