Payroll schedules allow you to group employees who have the same pay frequency in whichever way that helps make your payroll runs convenient and hassle-free. More ...
A payroll schedule defines when you should run your payroll so that you can pay your employees on their pay day. You define how often you pay your employees (weekly, biweekly, monthly, and so on), which date their paycheck is due, and which day you run payroll, and QuickBooks calculates your upcoming payroll schedule so that you can pay your employees on time.
After you set them up, payroll schedules appear in the Pay Employees section in the Payroll Center. Here's an example of what payroll schedules look like after you've set them up.

Why should I use a payroll schedule?
When you use payroll schedules, QuickBooks automatically determines the payroll processing dates for each pay period, taking into account weekends and bank holidays. You set up your payroll schedule one-time and assign employees to it, and QuickBooks creates payroll schedules, based on the frequency you set up, for each upcoming pay period.
