Before exporting to Ace Payroll first make sure that the Payroll ID and the Department Code for each of your employees in TimeDock match their respective values within Ace Payroll.


Export timesheet file from TimeDock

  1. Login to your TimeDock account and navigate to Export.
  2. Choose Ace Payroll from the list of export formats.
  3. Select your timesheet date range by modifying the From and To filters. You can also choose a different rounding option or filter the exported timesheets by a specific department.
  4. Choose if you want to create automatic break deductions by changing the settings in the Break Deductions box.
  5. Choose your department mode for employee matching. N.B. the employee department code must match to the employee department code within Ace Payroll.
  6. Click Download File to save the timesheet file to your computer. The file name should be kept as IMPORT.TXT and in most cases the file location should be c:\winpay\ (unless the configuration in Ace Payroll has been changed).
