Pay Groups can be set up to group employees for different pay rules, such as: pay frequencies and locations, or to separate reporting. Most accounts have only one Pay Group, where all employees’ pay is processed together. Multiple Pay Groups can be set up when needed; they are processed independently, with separate pay period reports.
Time Entry Grid by Pay Group

Located under the client notes are the available Pay Groups for payroll processing. If your organization has a single Pay Group, only one group will be visible; multiple Pay Groups will display when applicable. The Pay Group box(es) will show your organization's next scheduled payroll run.
