When entering labor.  Do you input the gross check amount or the net amount for salaried employees?  I have 20% logged for contributions.  Thanks

I entered the labour for saturday the 2/12/17 and saved.. now that day has disappeared from the calendar, and if i go to the labour calendar and choose any date when it opens it, it shows every day empty, but if I go manually on the days apart from the 2/12/17 it shows the saved work!??!?! 


How do I get a report for each particular employee? Like a wage and earnings statement? And how do I get the estimated cost for payroll to go away and stop recording .79 cent a day in estimated payroll cost? I have already adjusted the fields in Settings to 0. 

When entering labor, you enter the net amount and let BACON guesstimate what the gross will be with the additional fee's.  There is no way would know the gross amount daily, that is why.  Regarding the daily labor entries, you can turn that off in settings by turning off post daily labor.

My labor numbers seem to be way off. Can someone please help fix this?

when entering labor is it better to do it daily or bi-weekly?

You should enter labor daily.  The more daily data you have, the more useful the budget and forecasting tools are.  Plus, if you only data bi-weekly, you will not be able to make real time decisions, which is the entire point of the software.  We want you to have as much near-real-time data as possible.  We suggest reviewing your numbers every Monday or Tuesday at the latest and making changes each week to influence those numbers.

BE SURE TO watch the videos in the support section on setting up labor and entering labor so you can do your best to estimate your expenses and get an accurate labor cost.
