So… from our second day’s tutorial. we were able to set up leave types, creating leave group,setting up time-off days. Lastly, we learnt how to create a new user group and your first login user(You).
So, ready to go… Today, we would be looking at the following topics;

To begin, open your browser and type in the address csmanager.com.ng. The page displayed is the landing page from which this entire tutorial would be done. Proceed to login to your administrative account.
  1. Click on the Payroll Management menu to expand,scroll down and then select add/edit payroll group.
  2. Fill in a group name and its  description
  3. From the drop  down menu select the employee employment  type in the Leave Allowance field  the employee minimum level and the PAYE Tax scheme
  4. Enter the maximum pay amount
  5. Tick the Overtime payment and/or Weekend payment if you have a third party tool (Bio metrics)that captures in-out of office and would like to upload data from it monthly to calculate the overtime.
  6. Then click on the create payroll button  (Note: All fields with a red bar to the left side are compulsory fields and must be filled to proceed)
