Enabling Employee Access to Self Service

BrightPay Connect provides a web-based portal where employees can browse and download their history of payslips and other payroll documents, view their payroll calendar, including annual leave, sick leave and parenting leave, request leave directly from Self Service, view their personal details and request to make updates to their personal details.


There are two ways for an employer/bureau to set up employee access to self service:

a) When linking an Employer to BrightPay Connect for the first time

 1) Within your BrightPay software, open the company you wish to connect and click the grey Cloud icon in the top right hand corner of the screen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) Enter your BrightPay Connect login details and click ‘Sign In’.

 

3) Next, click 'Link to BrightPay Connect' to bring you through to the set-up wizard.

 

4) Read the information on the following two screens and click ‘Next’ when ready.

5) On the Employee Self Service screen, if your employees will be availing of the employee self-service facility, select when you would like finalised payslips, P60s and if applicable, P11Ds to be made available to them and click ‘Next’ again.

 

6) On the following screen, confirm the employees who will have access to Self Service, along with the email address they will each use to log in (each email address entered must be unique).

 

7) You are now ready to link your employer file to BrightPay Connect. Click ‘Finish’ to complete the process, followed by ‘Close’.

5) Under 'Payslip and Document Availability', select when you would like finalised payslips, P60s and P11Ds to be made available to the employees and click ‘Save’ on completion.

 

You are now ready to send invitation emails to your employees to notify them that they now have access to the Self Service portal, where they can access their payslips and other payroll documents, view their calendar and request leave, and view their personal details and request to make updates to their personal details
