Xero Business Community

Hi everyone, Come on over to the new discussions in Xero Central. It’s a more intuitive way to connect and chat all things business with one another. Ask questions, dish out answers, and get involved.

You can still view topics in the Xero Business Community to see all the useful knowledge that’s been shared there; and you can restart conversations you feel have been of huge value to you on Xero Central.

If you have brilliant ideas for innovations, you can keep on adding feature requests in the Xero Business Community, and voting on existing requests. There’s more in store, as we come up with the best way to take on your thoughts and share developments

AU Payroll: Allocate days of week worked by permanent part-time employees

Started by Sharon Casagrande in Payroll Feature Requests | Idea

For permanent part-time employees, it would be great to be able to allocate days of the week that are worked, so that public holidays would be eliminated for those days not normally worked.

For example: If an employee works 30 hrs per week and do not work on a Friday, therefore Xmas Public Holiday 2020 would not apply.
Thanks for the detail here, Sharon!

There's no plans currently to develop this for AU Payroll but if there's any updates on this heading into the new year, I'll be sure to come back and let you know.

We'll continue to keep an eye on this request to get a read on the the interest - don't forget to come back and add your own support as well 😊

That would also mean that when leave is entered it is only applied to the set working days rather than spreading over the full week. Great idea

I'm new to Xero and I don't know how old this post is (is there a date her somewhere?) but I was frustrated at this too, but my workaround was to put their "normal" hours in a timesheet and saved as a template. Sorry if you already knew this and this isn't what you were asking for.
