      • Manual checks do not inherit salary/standard hours but do inherit payroll defaults.
      • Rate of pay/rate number is not applied automatically.
      • Users must enter hours/rate and perform calculation to populate amount (does not calculate automatically).
      • Scheduled E/D amounts like Child Support should accept entered amounts.
      • No EP, EO or EQ hours or amounts in manual checks.
