We have published Knowledgebase article 104171 The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (United States) / Canada Economic Response Plan, which includes steps so you can track COVID-19 related absences. A report will be available next week.
Can Sage not simply add an additional Pay Type? Or can we have our Sage business consultants do this?
Hi Jolyn Grant
Thank you for your question. Pay Types are hard-coded and a consultant won’t be able to add them to the program. Our product team discussed how to solve for this recent challenge, and determined the best and quickest method is the one covered in the article. A report to use in conjunction with the new absence fields will be announced soon.
A report is now available and attached to KB article 104171 (link is in the above post). You can also download the report and instructions for using it from KB article 104238.
I am not versed in using absences within Sage100. Can you point me to a source for that? And, I am not understanding how we are to use absences to pay (and track) for days worked under a Payroll Protection Program PPP loan?
We can help you if you are still not sure how to implement.
