Question: In payroll, how do I lock the payroll transaction that have been processed as I do not wish any other users to do changes for past payroll transaction?


In payroll, go to Tools > Lock Period.


In Period Locker, select the year and the month that you wish to lock the payroll transaction.

For example, August 2017.
