Payroll: Ability to remove categories used on timesheets

We use timesheets and then process the payroll from there.

It would be most useful to be able to deselect a wage category from individuals when the category is no longer used.

This is not possible - the message that appears states:- This wage category is used on timesheets for this employee and cannot be deselected.

Even if the category is in previous payroll years it is still not able to be deselected.

Your consideration in fixing this would be appreciated.

Thanks

Judy

I can not fathom why this was marked as an issue nearly 5 years ago and it still has not been fixed. Nearly 90% of our employees are paid under an EBA which has different categories for each level, but once an employee is promoted I can not deselect there previous category for payment.

 

If I knew this was an issue I would have never started using the timesheet function!

I definitely need this option.   When staff move from casual to permanent I use separate payroll categories, but am still left with the casual payroll categories as well.  Can create havoc when using API sync and wrong pay category is used in the roster system and pays the staff a casual rate instead of permanent.

Yes - extremely frustrating that a category cannot be deselected just because there is history in a timesheet. Leave the history with the Timesheet! I dont want to have to plough through 25 incorrect category options just because a previous MYOB user didnt know what they were doing, or because I've changed an employee from hourly to salary, or from casual to part time or full time. The logic being used is TOTALLY illogical and frustrating.

Are there any updates on this? Is it going to be included in upcoming versions?  Please?

This is such an annoying detail that I'm encountering for the first time now, but I see from reading the threads that it's been an issue for other users for years! 

Time to fix it guys! It's not like MYOB is free, it costs enough that you should be able to manage things like this in less than 5 years!

This drives me crazy that we cant deselect a payroll categories from an employee.

I was so excited to clean up the categories now that I am in a new payroll year, but I cant.

Make its really easy to make an error and choose the incorrect payroll category that is no longer relevant.

I cant believe this issue still has not improved. Due to a complex EBA the only way 30+ employees are paid the correct rates & allowances is to have difference payroll categories, which should be cleared after the payroll year has been rolled over.

Any update at all on this MYOB? There have been numerous people requesting this but you have been ignoring the issue for the past 5 years!

This would be amazing to have - at some point ten or fifteen years ago, one of my clients was using expense payroll items to do their employee superannuation. This is no longer true - those payroll items have not been intentionally used in a number of years. I need to be able to remove them to prevent their inadvertent usage when someone is setting up employees.

I so need to be able to unselect pay categories from employee's standard pays after timesheets have been submitted as we now have new payrates for our employees, which then means more payroll categories to be created.  Is there any chance that this is still being looked at to have this function please.
