With the spread of COVID-19 globally, we decided 2 weeks ago to transition our entire team to remote work. It was a bit daunting at first, but we’re grateful to be able to say it’s largely business as usual again at SimplePay (albeit with a bit more distance between us and significantly more Zoom meetings every day).
With that in mind, we have been hard at work to ensure we reduce the burden on employers and payroll administrators where possible. We have introduced new functionality to allow users to manage their employees’ services in bulk. A new Employee Actions section has been added to the Bulk Actions page to allow users to do the following for their employees in bulk:
- End Service
- Undo End of Service
This new bulk functionality allows you to manage multiple employees’ services in one place on SimplePay without requiring you to navigate to each employee, one at a time.
To learn more about how this functionality works, head over to our help page here.
For larger companies we recommend limiting this bulk functionality to batches of 50 employees to ensure smoother results.
If you have any questions, please contact our support team.
We are happy to announce the release of a new feature that allows you to override payslip end dates in bulk. This feature is used to extend or shorten the payment period for a specified payslip.
This feature is particularly useful for companies that have an annual shutdown and pay their employees upfront for the period that they are on leave. Of course, overriding payslip end dates in bulk is not exclusively for annual shutdowns and this feature can be used in various contexts.
For more information on how to use this bulk action, refer to our help articles:
We hope that this new feature enhances your payroll processing experience. If you have an annual shutdown in December, be sure to bookmark this blog post for use later in the year.

We are happy to announce that we have increased our bulk actions functionality to include bulk actions for once-off payslips. If you have multiple employees with once-off payslips and need to add items to these payslips, you can now do so in bulk by going to Employees > Bulk Actions.
From here, you can select either Payslip Inputs or Clocking Imports. Then click on Switch to once-off payslips and capture your data accordingly. Please take note of the following:
- Payslip Inputs: As always, only once-off items (i.e. no regular items) can be added to once-off payslips.
- Clocking Imports: Only custom items with Payslip Inputs are supported for this method.
