How can we help?

Enable Payroll on AutoPilot® with a single pay schedule

AutoPilot is a feature that allows you to process your payroll automatically without logging in to Gusto. You can eliminate the time it takes to pay your employees by using Payroll on AutoPilot®.

  • Note: The Autopilot® feature does not exist for contractor payments. If you need to pay contractors in the future, adjust the check date when paying them.

Enable AutoPilot with a single pay schedule

  1. Make sure your workers have the following settings:
    • All workers are set up with direct deposit payments.
    • For hourly employees, include default hours set per pay period.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Click the Payroll tab.
  4. Next to Payroll on AutoPilot, click Edit.
  5. Click Enabled.
  6. Click Save.

Your payroll will automatically process each pay period 1 day before the deadline. Once payroll is processed, you'll receive an email notification. You'll also be reminded that you have 24 hours to make changes to your payroll or cancel it if needed. Once you make the changes, click Save Changes for Later and your changes will apply to the next payroll.
