Vagaro and Gusto Troubleshooting
The following steps will assist you with getting your Vagaro and Gusto integration running properly. First, for the sync to work, make sure that your Payroll settings match in Vagaro and Gusto. This includes Payroll frequency, Day of the Week, and Payroll closing date. To check your Payroll settings in Vagaro, go to the Payroll Configuration page.
- Click Reports at the top of the page. Then click Payroll Configuration on the menu on the left side of the page.
- Once you are on the Payroll Configuration page, you will want to verify that you have the correct Payroll Frequency, Day of the Week, and Payroll Ending Day.
- Once you have verified the information in Vagaro, verify it in Gusto. You can do this from the Company Details page.
- On the Company Details page, select the Edit button next to Pay Schedule.
- From the small window, select the same Pay Period, Day of the Week, and Payroll Ending Day that you have in Vagaro.
- You must also select the First Pay Day on New Schedule and select on which dates the work was done to be included in this pay period.
If the information matches, your sync issues should resolve on their own. If your Payroll ends on a Saturday or Sunday, this will not align with the settings in Gusto as they do not offer Saturdays or Sundays as paydays, because most banks do not process payments over the weekend.
If you already have your Payroll end date in Vagaro to Saturday or Sunday, here are the steps to manually sync your Payroll settings.
- In Gusto, select the same Payroll Frequency as what you have selected in Vagaro. For Day of the week, select Monday.
- Select other on the For Work Done drop-down list, and then select the Payroll Ending Date that you have entered in Vagaro.
- Click Save.
When you go back to Vagaro, the error message should have cleared. Make sure that your employees have their profiles completely set up in Gusto as well, so that your Payroll will be processed, and you can pay all of your Employees on time.
