How can I track Projects in PayMaker?

We were recently asked by a customer on how they could track time spent and amount paid out on projects for their staff using PayMaker?

This would be useful to any company where employees work on multiple projects e.g. Construction companies.

You can do this using the Accounts feature of PayMaker. This lets you allocate a different account to each line of your timesheet. Most of our clients do not use this for anything useful and simply allocate it to one account called Wages.

However you can use it for Project cost tracking as explained below.

Step 1: Setup your Projects as Accounts in PayMaker

           1. Go to Administration
           2. Select Table Maintenance and click OK
           3. Select Accounts and click OK
           4. Click Add and enter the Project names as per your requirements (Example shown below)

Step 2: Enter timesheets with Account/Project information.

         1. Create your batches as you normally do to enter your timesheets.
         2. After the batches are created you can select the project names as shown in the                                    picture below by using the Account drop down.

Step 3: Print reports with Project/Accounts information.

PayMaker has a number of reports that you can use to print out project/account related information.

      Payroll Reports:
          1. Go to Reports
          2. Select Payroll Reports
          3. Choose Accounts or Account Details (Based on your Company requirements)

We hope that this post helps you to use PayMaker even more effectively to manage your business. If you need any further help, please contact us at or call us on + (679) 3304554
