This workflow is for monitoring the processing of payrolls. If the payroll doesn't require client authorisation, you can skip this section after you have processed the payroll.

How to use this workflow

This workflow attaches to a "job", which in turn attaches to an "assignment". If you are already using assignments and jobs, and the prerequisites below are fulfilled, you need to right-click on the relevant job and select "start workflow". Select the workflow "_CCH Payroll".


The relevant "assignment template" must show this workflow as available and as default.
The "assignment template" must show the correct frequency and algorithm.

This is typically monthly; however different time periods can be used if necessary.

All instances of this assignment must also show the correct frequency and algorithm (this can be achieved using "bulk update" if required).

Note: that if you have exceptional cases where the frequency is different, this can be catered for by changing the frequency and algorithm on the individual assignment instances (i.e. in those specific clients).

The relevant job needs to have "Target date" completed with the payroll deadline (NB: this only needs to be completed for the first period).

Possible Enhancements

If you want to permanently record which payrolls need client approval, you could create an extra field category. You could then add a "Check extra field" step in the workflow to automatically route the flow accordingly.

Responsibility for all tasks are currently allocated to the client partner. If you wish to use the "Tasks" homepage control, the workflow steps could be changed to reflect the responsibility types reflected in the assignment or client level responsibilities.
