New FingerCheck360 Feature: Pre-Defined Check Types

When you think of payroll, what do you think of? The first thing that comes to mind is probably paychecks.

Paychecks are the life force that keeps your business going. Gross wages, bonuses, commissions, and reimbursements – the list goes on and on.

Since paychecks are so important to running your business, we decided to make it easier for you to add additional checks during the payroll process by allowing you to select checks by “type.”

The best part? The “type” is created by you, and you can create as many as you want. While creating your check types, you can even enter pre-defined check rules.    

For instance, say you want to pay an employee a bonus. If you decide that bonuses should always be paid with a traditional paper check, you can create a “Bonus” check type and select a rule that says “Block Direct Deposits” to stop the usual direct deposit transaction from taking place.

Say you don’t want to make deductions on bonuses. You can select “Block All Deductions” to block all deductions from occurring on bonus checks.

Once you’ve created your check types, every time you add an additional check, you can select one of your check types and the system will automatically apply the rules of that template to calculate the check.

We felt compelled to create this unique feature because we recognized the inconvenience of being required to modify the same rules on every check. Now, with our new check type feature, the administrator can build templates for each type of check and apply the correct template to the check.

Doing so is simple! In our help desk article, we explain how to build your check types, and how to select them during the payroll process. We hope you like our new check type feature! At the end of the day, our goal is to serve you.
