Correct a payroll schedule that shows in red
The payroll schedule showing in the Payroll Center is red. This can happen when you pay employees using unscheduled payroll instead of your normal payroll schedule or you entered the wrong dates on the payroll schedule setup.
You have an active QuickBooks Payroll subscription and have set up at least one payroll schedule.
Your payroll schedule will no longer appear in red.
To correct the payroll schedule so it doesn't appear in red:
Choose Employees > Payroll Center. (In Simple Start, click Payroll to enter the Payroll Center.)
Click Related Payroll Activities and select Add or Edit Payroll Schedules.
In the Payroll Schedule List, double-click the payroll schedule showing in red.
Change the two date boxes on the bottom to the next pay period end date and check date.
