In uAttend, you can set up your pay periods as you wish. You can specify the length of time for each pay period, the day that the work week will start, and the day(s) of the month that each pay period will begin.

To create a pay period, follow these steps:


1.  Click the Settings tab on the main menu.

2.  Click the General tab in the options that appear below Settings.  (this should be highlighted by default)

3.  Click the Edit link in the Pay Period row to adjust the length of time that your pay periods will be. The options are:

  • WeeklyPay periods are one week long.
  • Bi-WeeklyPay periods are two weeks long.
  • Semi-MonthlyThere are two pay periods per month.
  • MonthlyThere is one pay period per month.

NOTE: If you choose either the Monthly or Semi-Monthly option, a third setting (Pay Period Starts On) appears on the screen, allowing you to set the day(s) of the month that will begin each pay period.

4.  Edit the Workweek Starts On setting to adjust the workweek start date.

5.  When you are finished with each setting, click Save.

NOTE:  If you change your pay period after users have begun punching in and out, you must recalculate timecards to reflect the change. To recalculate timecards, click the Timecards tab, then select the user's name from the list. Click the Recalculate link in the lower-right corner of the screen.
