Online Access/Audit report

The Online Access/Audit report lists all authorised Novopay users at a school, and the level of access that they have.
See Request access to Novopay Service for a description of the access levels.


Check this report regularly to ensure that only the people who are currently delegated by the board of trustees to carry out payroll administration tasks have access to Novopay, and that their level of access is appropriate. Also check that access has been cancelled for authorised users who no longer require access or who have left the school.


This report is available in CSV and PDF formats. For information on these file formats, see CSV and PDF file formats.


Only school-wide administrators and principals can access this report.

It is recommended that the principal signs this report to confirm that the authorised user list is correct.
