PayItems and PayGroups within ShiftCare allow the flexibility to assign varying payroll categories to staff. Each payItem (weekday, weekend or public holiday) makes up a payroll category. In turn, each Pay Group can be assigned to staff members. For example, Casual staff can be assigned to a Casual  Pay Group, same goes for Part-Time etc).

Note: Naming conventions may vary from organisation to organisation.

Creating Pay Items

In-order to create Pay Items and assign them payroll categories, first start with creating Pay Group based on category suitable to your staff and organisation requirements.

To create a PayGroup navigate to the main menu and select the Settings > Pay Items. Under Pay Items, select Pay Groups.

Selecting the Pay Groups will open the Pay Groups list page. Click Action > Add Pay Group to get started.

Give your Pay Group a name.

Once you've created your new pay group you can begin adding pay-items. PayItems should cover each of the days of the weeks and times of day, for example, Weekday Daytime or Weekday Evening and what times those start and end.

  • Day of Week: This is will tell the system to apply this Pay Item based on shift's day of week.
  • Effective Date: The commencement date allocated for the pay item.
  • Code: Add the appropriate payroll code from your MYOB Payroll software (find out more here).
