You should check for updates at least once per quarter. You can check for updates as often as you wish, for example before processing paychecks to make sure that you are up to date.

If you have checked the box “Don’t show this window again” you can also check for updates once the payroll program opens to the main Payroll Navigator screen by clicking the “Check for Updates” button with the green circle in the lower left corner.

If an update is available, you will be prompted to install the update.
