FAQ & Troubleshooting
How do I change the 'Current Applying Period'
The current applying period is as a reference point for deciding how to order your weeks if you have more than one. There is no need to match this date to your pay period start date. Once set, this field cannot be changed - if you change your pay periods, simple re-order the times you have entered to match the new order. For example, you might need to switch the hours from the second week to the first week.
What's the difference between regular hours of work and the roster?

Who should use regular hours of work?
