Payroll Batch is a record representing the salary payment of staff. You would add the staff to the payroll batch and the system would calculate staff salary according to the formula set in Job Order Template.
You can adjust the amount by clicking on the individual payroll or through importing.
Go to Payroll -> Payroll to create the Payroll Batch. In the Payroll Batch, go to More and you can generate the report you want.
