Custom export to payroll

Last updated - Jun 02, 2020 at 2:55PM

Before exporting to payroll first make sure that all your employee unique ID's are aligned with the employee reference code within your payroll software. We also recommend that you have an IT person or a support person from your payroll available for assistance upon your first export to payroll.

To export your hours from TIMEDOCK first log in to the web portal and then navigate to EXPORT, from the top menu. From here you can elect to customise your own CSV export (Custom CSV) for use with Excel or other CSV-compatible software.

For more information on customising your own CSV export, please see the advanced topic Creating a custom CSV export

Frequently asked questions about custom payroll exports.

How can I manage or set up lunch breaks?

At the moment (July 2023) there are two ways to handle lunch breaks. Firstly, staff can clock out for unpaid breaks and for paid breaks you could use Activity Codes, clocking into one designated for breaks. Or alternatively, you can set a simple automatic break deduction at the point of exporting or sending your timesheets to payroll. However we are planning to expand upon break deduction functionality within the future.
