Timesheets to Salary

I'm trying to change an employee from Hourly timesheets to Salary.  I've followed the instructions on the help bar, but I get the error message "One or more payroll categories cannot be deselected as they have been used on recorded timesheets" amd it won't allow me to change it.  

Please help!

Re: Timesheets to Salary

Hi @Katey,


Thanks for reaching out.


Once a payroll category has been used on a timesheet, you will not be able to remove that category from the employee's card. This is due to the historical data attached to those transactions and how they affect certain payroll reports. 


Please note that even though the category appears when you're processing the payroll, it will not appear on the employee's pay slip once they receive it as it will not be getting used. 


The alternate workaround would be to create a new employee card and make the old one inactive. 


Do let me know if you have any further queries or concerns, happy to assist further.
