This article will explain how to enable and configure the payroll feature in Time Doctor.

Payroll can be generated at any point in time for any user(s) and exported in CSV format.

Only the company owner can enable payroll and give payroll access to another user (with any access level).

IMPORTANT: The payroll feature is not available for silent companies.

Enabling and Setting up Your Payroll

First, you’ll need to enable payroll in your Company Settings.

After doing that, you’ll see a new menu item at the top called “Payroll.”

Now, you can configure and generate your payroll.

  1. Enable additional payment method(s): PayPal, TransferWise, Gusto and ADP
    Note: If you want to make manual payments, don’t enable those options.
  2. Select the user(s) that you want to include in the payroll.
  3. Select a date range for your payroll.
  4. Select the payment currency for each user.
  5. Optional: Add or deduct an adjustment.
    You can add additional pay if your user(s) received a bonus, for example.
  6. Enter the pay rate for each user.
  7. Select the payment method for each user.
  8. Now you can export your payroll as a CSV file and upload it to PayPal, TransferWise, Gusto or ADP to make a batch payment. If you export the manual payment payroll, it will contain all the information available on the Payroll page.

If you’ve enabled multiple payment methods, your payroll will be exported as a ZIP file containing separate CSV files for each payment method.

Currencies, pay rates, and payment methods will be remembered for your next payroll.
