In this video, we will show you how to unlock your last pay period in order to make additional adjustments or edits. As covered in our other videos, once you run your payroll report using Pay Periods and you finalize it, the timesheets get locked in the system preventing any retroactive changes to be made. If you do, however, need to make changes to already processed pay period, then you can unlock your last pay period.
To do so, navigate to the settings area and choose the payroll tab. Click on the “View History” button in the upper right corner. You will access a list of all your pay periods to date.
This data is sorted into the following columns:
- The date range
- The type
- The indicator that the pay period is locked
- The name of the person who last made changes
- And the date and the name of the person who locked it.
