Please allow payroll categories to be added or pay rates to be adjusted while in the middle of processing a pay run.  Very inconvenient to have to run a separate run or cancel and start all over again.

Thank you.

This is indeed very annoying particularly when you have a number of employees in a pay run.  Would make life a lot easier to be able to add pay catergories during the payroll processing.

Yes, it is very annoying to have to skip one employee who has a new payroll category and then have to go back and manually add that one wage.

Hi Everyone


A new pay item can be added to the employee in the middle of a pay run in MYOB Essentials by

  1. Selecting the Save button on the current pay run (bottom right),
  2. Selecting the employee>>Adding the new Pay item via the Pay items - earnings & deductions tab before selecting Save
  3. Go back to the Enter Pay window and select Resume Pay Run.
