Self Service

  • 1.  Self Service

    Posted 13 days ago

    We are updating our GP from 2013 to 2018 and I see that there are many enhancements to GP. I am looking at the W2 and it states that a payroll user can print out the W2 without having preprinted forms. My question would be can the payroll user print out all the W2's  for the year using GP self service system thus, eliminate the purchase of preprinted forms? Because when you create the W2 it states that you can publish to employee self service but we don't have employees using the self service at this time and would only have internal staff using self service for W2 printing. Also  do we need to set up each payroll user as in our internal payroll processor in self service?  Any feedback and information is very appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Hi Lena,

    Oh you are going to LOVE the new version, we have added so many features across the board, it will be like a new system for you, kids in a candy store :-)

    Yes you are right, employees can be set up with a self service user type then they can log in and print their own W2.  Once you upgrade, you can set the prior years as publish to self service and then they can print a 2019 or 2018 W2 as well, whatever year you want them to print.

    We also added 1 form the single up with lines, lets say you let your employees print their own W2, out of the 500 employees you have all but 50 of them printed, then you could use the 1 up form with lines and print those last 50 to mail out.  Then like you said no need to buy forms.

    Here is the blog on the pre-printed form
