Employee Report

Details Overview

The Employee report within the Administration menu of the SapphireOne Payroll/HR mode is the major reporting area for all employee pay information. Reports may contain a single line for each employee, to a full A4 page of details. The user also has the option of using the quick report or custom report functions built into to SapphireOne. 

The user should retain your employee summary reports after each pay period run for future reference. You are then able to refer to period figures for every employee through their Historical details.

When printing employee reports, the user should be aware that SapphireOne will assume that it is to print the selected report on all Employees that are currently active in SapphireOne. This may be from just a few employees but could extend to hundreds or even thousands of them.

When the Employee report is selected from the Administration menu, SapphireOne will present a print dialog screen named ‘Employee Details Reports’. The user may then select and customise the criteria and data they would like included within the report. This screen is displayed immediately below and note carefully the Report Selection option by default is set as Active Only. If you have 1000 employees SapphireOne will print the report for all 1000 employees.
