Overview of the Icons in the Workforce Now Payroll Cycle
The icons in the following graphic correspond to the six steps identified in the Workforce Now
payroll cycle:
The following table describes the purpose of each of these icons:
Icon
Start New Cycle
Description
Clears all temporary information from previous pay periods and advances the cycle
to the next pay period. Once the cycle has been started, the icon reads Cycle
Started and it is grayed out.
You cannot start a new cycle unless the previous cycle is complete and there is no
active user lock for the company. You must also accept the payroll before you start
a new cycle.
Note: A schedule must exist in order to start a new cycle.
Add New Hires
Accesses the New Hire Wizards. These wizards contain step-by-step instructions
to walk practitioners through the required fields to hire a new employee. There is
also a Quick Hire Wizard to help speed up this process.
Note: You can also import new hires.
Enter Employee
Changes
Used to enter permanent employee changes.
Note: Changes can also be imported or entered though self service entry.
Examples: Address changes, direct deposit changes or pay rate changes.
Enter Paydata
Contains three options: Current Pay, Payment Adjustment and EI History. Data can
be manually keyed or imported into paydata. When the cycle is closed, the icon
reads "View Paydata", when it is open it reads "Enter Paydata."
Examples: Entry of Hours, one-time deductions, manual cheque updates.
 2015 ADP, LLC

MODULE 1 - PROCESSING BASIC PAYROLL
ADP Workforce Now® Modules & Features Overview
The payroll module works in conjunction with many other products and features to create a
seamless solution.
Modules Working with Payroll
Examples of modules that correspond directly with Payroll are Time & Attendance, HR,
Time Off and Benefits.
The Time & Attendance Module
Timecard information is entered/scheduled in the Time & Attendance module and then sent to
Payroll for processing.
Example: Timecards have been gathered and approved for processing. The Time &
Attendance practitioner with the appropriate security access selects the Prepare for Payroll
process to initiate the transfer of data to payroll. Time & Attendance data joins the payroll
data at the Verify Payroll stage and appears on preview and process reports. Once the payroll
is processed the payment are made to the required employees.
HR Module
In the past when HR and payroll were separate, entries had to be made multiple times or
imports were required to ensure that both systems were in sync. Workforce Now® allows the
personal data to be entered once and all modules purchased link to that information.
Example: Sally Hodgen is hired as a salaried employee and needs to be paid. Sally's name
will automatically appear within payroll due to the integration with the HR module. No
additional entries are required.
Time Off Module
Workforce Now® allows the Time Off information to be entered once and visible in both
payroll and time off sections of Workforce Now®. The two modules also have a direct feed so
that time information can be prepared for payroll and it will feed directly into payroll.
Example: An employee is entitled to two weeks vacation. An employee requests one week of
vacation through the employee self-service request feature. The time off request is approved
and the vacation is automatically paid out through payroll on the required dates.
Benefits Module
An integrated Benefits module may be included with your implementation if you purchase the
HR module as well. The Benefits module allows you to set up and manage various benefit plan
types, including Health and Welfare, Insurance and Custom benefit plans.
Example: Your organization has a different benefits package for new employees depending on
the level for which they are hired. Regular employees are eligible for the Bronze Benefits
Package, while anyone hired as a Manager is eligible for the Silver Benefits Package. You can
create separate Benefit Offerings to reflect the various Benefits packages your organization
requires.

MODULE 1 - PROCESSING BASIC PAYROLL
Features Used with Payroll
Here are some examples of features that enhance the Payroll module:
Security
The Security feature provides practitioners with the ability to create security at:
 Menu level: Practitioners can specify which menus and submenus for which each
profile has view and/or edit privileges.
 Person and company level: Where personal level access is granted.
Example: The Payroll Supervisor is responsible for opening the pay cycle, reviewing the
preview reports for accuracy and then processing the payroll once validated. Create a custom
practitioners profile that provides access to the menu options for opening a pay cycle,
previewing reports and processing payroll.
Effective Dating
The Effective Dating feature allows practitioners to identify when a task will take place, today
or in the future. Future-dated entries will remain in ADP Workforce Now® until the date
entered falls within the payroll period dates.
Example: Annual raise amounts have been confirmed for all associates in the company. The
payroll administrator has decided to be proactive and key the entries in advance with a date in
the future. The entries will not take effect until the effective date falls within the payroll period
dates.
Workflow
Workflows can be designed to create a notification or an approval process when specific
changes are made. When a change is made, the workflow is triggered and a notification and or
an approval request goes to the recipient's message centre for review.
Example: Using the example of a raise, Sally (manager) enters a raise into the system for
Jacob (employee). A workflow is then triggered sending a notification to Sally's manager with
an approval request to Brenda in HR. The item must be approved by Brenda before the change
is processed in payroll.

Schedule Overview
Schedule Types
There are two schedule types that must be coordinated so that payroll is processed accurately
and on time:
 The Mainframe Payroll Schedule
 Workforce Now® Pay Period Schedule
Payroll Schedules
Payroll Schedules are set up for each client on ADP's mainframe. This schedule contains
Input Date, Run Date and Return Date for each pay cycle.
 The initial schedule is set up by Implementation and then the mainframe automatically,
generates the remaining dates based on the pay frequency, desired input and return
dates, as well as funding terms.
 A copy of the Payroll Schedule showing the Input Date, Run Date and Return Date is
provided to the client during the initial implementation process.
 Schedules are automatically generated in the spring of each year. The schedules cover
the time period of June 1st of the current year, to May 31st of the following year.
Clients are then responsible for validating and requesting any changes with their ADP
representative.

Payroll Data
Understanding the types of data you are entering and ways of reducing keying time can be
valuable asset before opening a Payroll Cycle. Let's take a look at how these details can save
you time.
Cyclical and Non-Cyclical Data
Many clients do not want payroll cycles opened until they are ready to key payroll.
Understanding the difference between cyclical data and non-cyclical data can help you save
time. There are many different types of data. Some examples are payments and adjustments,
Record of Employment (ROE) or employee changes. To save time, it would be valuable to
know what data can be entered into a closed pay period and what data must wait until the pay
cycle is open. The terms used to describe these two types of data are cyclical and non-cyclical
data. Let's take a look at these terms and see the types of data fit within each of the categories:
Cyclical Data
Cyclical data refers to data that you enter for each payroll cycle.
Some examples of cyclical data are:
 ROE requests
 Enter pay data
Non-Cyclical Data
Non-Cyclical data refers to data that you enter on periodically in the payroll cycle. You can
entered this type of data into a closed cycle, however the data will not be processed until the
cycle is opened and the payroll is processed.
Some examples of non-cyclical data are:
 Employee changes
 Entering a new hire

The Start New Cycle Icon
The payroll cycle is currently closed. The practitioner has had the opportunity to enter any
required non-cyclical information. The actual entry process for an open pay cycle is the same
as it would be for a closed Pay Cycle. Non-cyclical type of entries will be discussed further in
Part 2 of this course.
Now that all required schedules have been created, let's explore how to open a new pay cycle
and how that looks.
Start New Cycle is the first icon in the payroll cycle. It opens the cycle so that all tasks are
enabled. Once the cycle has been started the icon will grey out and the wording will change to
Started Cycle (see icon images).
Note: Once the Start New Cycle icon is selected, ADP Workforce Now® clears any existing
paydata from the previous payroll and advances the payroll calendar to the next pay period.
Starting a new cycle will trigger any effective dated entries for his period to take effect.

Pay Rate Types
Payments are calculated based upon different pay rates types, which are determined based on
an employee's role in the company. The following are common pay rate types:
Salary
Pay rates and standard hours are entered during the hiring process for all salaried employees.
The salary per pay field is calculated by taking the annual salary and dividing the annual salary
by the number of pay period in the calendar year. The standard hours are used for the Record
of Employment.
Salaried payments are automatically generated each pay period. The amount paid is equal to
the salary per pay or the adjusted amount, regardless of the number of hours worked. No
manual intervention is required with this payment type unless adjustments to the payment are
required.
Salary Example
Bill has a biweekly salary of $2,600. If no changes are required for this pay period, ADP
Workforce Now® will automatically create a payment of $2600.00 (minus deductions) for Bill
with no manual intervention required by the practitioner.
Exception Hourly
A regular hourly rate and standard hours are entered as part of the hiring process for all
exception hourly employees. This payment type is calculated by taking the regular hourly rate
and multiplying it by the standard hours. Exception hourly payments are automatically
generated each pay period, and can be adjusted as required. No manual intervention is
required with this payment type unless adjustments to the payment are required.
Note: Standard hours can be overridden with a different value at any time.
Exception Hourly Example
Pauline receives a bi-weekly payment for 20 standard hours per week, at a rate of 14.00 per
hour. If no changes are required for this pay period, ADP Workforce Now® will automatically
create a payment of $560.00 (minus deductions) for Pauline with no manual intervention by
the practitioner
Hourly
An hourly employee rate is entered as part of the hiring process for all hourly employees.
There are no automatic payments generated for this payment type. The number of hours
worked per pay period either must be entered by the practitioner or prepared and sent to payroll
from the Time and Attendance module. Once the system has this information the payment is
calculated by multiplying the number of hours worked by the rate in ADP Workforce Now®.
Hourly Example
Sally worked 78 hours the first pay period and 73 hours the next pay period. These hours may
arrive into payroll in one of two ways:
 By keying the data directly into the Paydata grid.
 If you use the Time and Attendance module, the hours accrued will be uploaded from
Time and Attendance into the Payroll Cycle.

Paydata Grids and Batches Overview
Grids and batches are the two components that make up the paydata grid. Practitioners have
the option to create a new grid, use a default grid or use a custom grid created in the past.
Grids remain even after payroll processing takes place. Practitioners must create their batches
each pay period. These two components form the earning headers and the employee names
make up the rows.
Paydata Grids and Batches
Grids and batches work together to create a customized template used for entering Paydata
each pay period. The grid creates the headers, and the batch populates the employees. Each of
these can be customized as required.
Grid and Batch Example
David had three groups of payment types in his company and he wants to keep them in
separate batches. He can use the same grid (headers), but have three different batches each
with the different payment types.
Terms and Descriptions

Description
Paydata grid
A grid is a series of labeled columns and rows that you use to enter paydata that
contains commonly-used pay information fields as column headers. You can also
create a custom grid to specify fields for specific paydata tasks.
Paydata batch
A batch is a group of payment records (for a specific payment type) for multiple
employees.
Note: Batches must be recreated each pay period and are deleted as part of the
Start New Cycle process.
