How can we help?

Enable or disable payroll on AutoPilot®

AutoPilot is a feature that allows you to process your payroll automatically without logging in to Gusto. We'll automatically run your payroll for you one day before your payroll deadlines. If you want to run all your payrolls manually, please disable 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 or disable AutoPilot

  1. Make sure your workers have the following settings:
  2. Go to the Company details section.
  3. Under the "Pay Schedule(s)" headline, if eligible, you can click the text next to Auto Pilot.
  4. Toggle to Enabled or Disabled.
  5. 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.

Reminder: 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.

Payroll, benefits, HR and more.
