Recipe overview

For smaller companies, or those in which payroll doesn’t change much between pay runs, it makes sense to set up automated pay runs that take the largely administrative work of approving payroll off your plate.

But when auto-approval fails, it’s important that companies are informed of such failures quickly, so they can go in and correct the issues or errors that cause the approval to fail—otherwise, they risk not getting their employees paid on time. 

With this Recipe, you’ll be able to stay on top of your failed, automated pay runs. When the auto-approval of a pay run fails, Rippling will automatically send a notification to your Payroll admin, alerting them to the situation at hand.

Want to add a Task to your alert? As with all our workflow Recipes, you can customize this template to your exact needs, including when it should trigger, what the actions should be, who it should go to, and more.
