Email Settings: UK Payroll | Payslips - Schedule date for payslips to be emailed
Ability to have an automated scheduled payslip.
Purpose: To make Payroll admin workflow easier, especially when they aren’t working on the day when payslip needs to be sent.
Rodney Freeland commented
I can't believe that this has not been picked up on and actioned. Such a basic feature for a payroll application.
Michele Grisdale commented
Great idea. The delay can be critical as the clients are notified of the amounts to pay. When payslips are sent before the payment is made the employees expect the payment has already been made. Also, they can be scheduled so they do not hit the employee's mailbox in the middle of the night when we sometimes run pays.

would be great for us BUSY bookkeepers/BAS Agents. Sometimes I can complete the payroll on the Friday for the Monday so this would be great for those situations!!!
Lee Phillips commented
How has this not been added yet? This should be a very simple feature to implement and would make life a lot easier for a lot of people!
Rachel Evans commented
This would make everyone's life so much easier - to have a delay timer on mailing payslips on the paydate.
I keep forgetting to go back on the actual day of the payrun and mail out the payslips. This feature would make sure it never gets missed.

They don't look at our comments, they don't like to fix bugs, and they don't really know or care how the UX and UI Interfaces work with their users.
It's shame that they don't seem to do what the users want, nor listen to their concerns. They've been contacted about illegal settings by myself, and they've denied it's illegal - in print. Then, quietly, they've make a change because it was indeed illegal, and don't bother to contact anyone to let them know.
Martina Ford commented
When will you be implementing this?? It is important

Payslips - Create a schedule (date/time) to automatically email payslips rather than having to complete manually.

Come on Xero your users have spoken!
I have 9 separate payrolls to run, please make our lives easier by having this simple feature, it will save us all a lot of time and hassle having to remember to go and email payslips!
Dean Outlaw commented
This has been going since 2013?
Fair dinkum, you guys are slow.
Michael Shacklock commented
Really need this as we process our payruns several days in advance..then have to remember to go back in to send the payslips out on pay the day. What a hassle..Doh
Surely this would be simple to add & make things a whole heap easier!
Andrew Blair commented
This is such an easy thing and will help users so very much. Whats the delay?
Or is the update 'scheduled'? (Pardon the pun)
Freya Pieroz commented
I'm running three weeks worth of weekly payroll for one client today, with the client's permission, because neither of us wants to be in the office in between Christmas and New Year's. I'd really like to schedule the payslips to automatically send on the day that the payments are scheduled for.
(Payslips that aren't sent within 24 hours of payroll payment day are breaking employment law; me working while I'm on annual leave breaches my contract. Basically, I currently have no option available to follow all legal requirements)
Jill Fechner commented
This is a must have. This feature was available in Quickbooks and I was really surprised that such a basic thing was not available in Xero.
Martine Mcgurgan commented
I would use this every pay run! Please add this feature!
Andrew Blair commented
This is a feature that would be VERY helpful. When is the feature expected to be live?
Kathryn Grouden commented
It would be great if you could schedule the emailing of the payslip to a particular day or time also, currently you have to log in and do it manually to send at the time of clicking the button, its annoying as I always want them to send a day or two later
Freya Pieroz commented
Fair Work Australia says payslips are to be sent within a day of payday - we like to queue up payroll so as much as possible runs automatically over Christmas, when we're all on leave, but payslips being required to be sent within a day of payday means that we can't, for example, create a payroll to be paid on 28/12/22 and then go on holiday - someone has to log in while they're visiting family just to send the payslips.
Carmel Cristofaro commented
I run payroll for two separate organisations and this would be a great feature especially when I run a payroll before the scheduled day.
Kathleen Hemmings commented
Would be great to have this functionality so that employees receive their payslips on their payday as I often finalise the payroll beforehand.
