Admins can add important reminders to their personal calendar, or use Gusto's in-app calendar if you'd prefer to keep the below information centrally located in Gusto.
Every time the calendar is synced, these events will be refreshed for the next two years as well as three months in the past.
Once added, these payroll reminders will reside under the calendar name: Gusto Reminders. Syncing frequency depends on the settings in your iCal, Outlook, or Google Calendar account.
Troubleshoot default calendar issues
Some browsers may default to a particular calendar. If you're having trouble syncing your preferred calendar, copy the subscribe URL and import it manually inside the calendar app.
To remove the calendar sync and reminders, you will need to unsubscribe from the calendar in your iCal, Outlook, or Google Calendar account.
If a payroll administrator is removed from a Gusto account, all Gusto reminders will automatically be removed from that former admin's calendar after the next calendar sync.
Q: Do the deadline dates for payroll consider bank holidays?
A: Yes—if a bank holiday falls within the timeframe for processing your payroll, this will be reflected correctly in your calendar so that you're aware you need to run payroll early. These deadlines indicate the very last day to run payroll in order to pay your employees on time through direct deposit (bank holidays and weekends included).
Q: Does this feature support multiple payroll schedules?
A: Yes—if you're using multiple pay schedules, pay days and deadlines to run each payroll will sync to your calendar.
Q: Can I customize which reminders sync to my calendar?
A: Not at this time. Once you've added the calendar URL, a standard set of reminders will sync automatically.
Q: I have multiple Gusto accounts. How can I distinguish which payroll reminder is from which of my Gusto accounts?
A: Payroll reminders will reside under the calendar name "Gusto Reminders" by default. We recommend editing the details for "Gusto Reminders" in your calendar by changing this name (i.e. to the actual company account name) and a different calendar color for each Gusto account.
