Summary

This guide explains the differences you'll notice after moving to Sage HR Online Services from Sage Employee Online Services

Description

After you have moved to Sage HR Online Services, there are some differences you will notice and need to be aware of. This new payslips portal will allow us to develop and introduce new features and functionality going forward that was not possible in our previous Online Services. 

Let's take a look at the differences below.


Changes to your login page

The way to log in to your Online Services is now different, but don't worry it's an easy process. 

What does Sage HR Online Services look like?

Once you are logged in, your online payslips portal page will look different. It will look similar to the screenshot below. 

 NOTE: The options you see may vary depending on whether you are an admin or an employee user, and if you have chosen to subscribe to the optional Sage HR modules too.

What do payslips look like?

When logged in to Sage HR Online Services, this is what the view of payslips and P60s looks like.

To view published payslips you must view them via each individual employee's profile. For more steps on how to view payslips and P60s Read more >

Changes in Sage 50cloud Payroll 

When logged into Sage 50cloud Payroll, there are some subtle differences you should be aware of. In the Online Services section, once you've moved to Sage HR Online Services, it now says Online Services Settings, instead of Online Documents Settings.

Changes in the way you upload payslips

There are a couple different ways you can upload payslips in Sage HR Online Services:

NOTE: When you click publish payslips, there is now no longer an additional step to follow. They will either be avaliable on Sage HR Online Services immediately, or will be available to view in Sage HR Online Services on the date you scheduled for.


Payslips email notifications

Email notifications have been removed from the payslips service as we redesign the process to utilise the ability of Sage HR Online Services to message in multiple ways. This means notification emails aren't sent when payslips are uploaded from Sage 50cloud Payroll. However, employees can access their payslips at anytime using the Sage HR app.

 NOTE: If you are a Sage 50 People Package customer, you can use the announcements feature in Sage HR's Core HR module to let your employees know their payslips are ready.


Optional Integration with Sage HR modules

Using Sage HR Online Services provides the ability to easily add and integrate optional Sage HR modules to help with your day to day HR admin tasks, such as onboarding or offboarding employees, keeping track of company assets, managing employees' time off etc. 

NOTE: If you are a Sage 50 People Package customer, you already have the Core HR module as part of your package, which you can set up once you have upgraded to Sage HR Online Services.


Using Online Documents

The ability to upload employee documents is no longer part of Payslips and P60s in Online Services. However, an online documents function is a key feature in Sage HR's Core HR module with a lot more functionality, including the ability to sign documents digitally.

 NOTE: If you are a Sage 50 People Package customer, you already have the Core HR module as part of your package, which you can set up once you have upgraded to Sage HR Online Services.


Using Online Timesheets

Online Timesheets is no longer available to purchase as part of Online Services, in its place is Sage HR's Timesheets module which is an optional HR module you can add to integrate with Sage HR Online Services.
