Return to the Pay Rate Loading section in Brevity (Administration > Pay Rate Loading). From here double-click into each entry and ensure they are mapped to the related PayPayroll Categories in MYOB by selecting the MYOB Payroll Categories in the Pay Item field. You can also create new Pay Rate Loading records here if you wish to match the Brevity setup to what you have in MYOB. 

You need to select every Earning Line for each line item in MYOB. If and Pay Rate is not mapped, Brevity will not sync the total hours for that specific Payroll Category.

The illustration above explains the Syncing of the timesheet from Brevity to MYOB. On the illustration above, the employee's saturday will not be sync because there is no Payroll Categories in MYOB that will receive the total number of hours they work on Saturday. So it is important that you sync all the Payroll Categories that you specify in the Pay Rate Loading into Employee's Pay Template in MYOB.
