TimeIPS Payroll Export can generate a file with your payroll data. Using the IPSEPI Extended Payroll Integration module, the file can be imported in your Peachtree payroll application.

Security Level Required: Payroll Administrator

Using the left pane Main Menu, click on: Administration » Payroll and Reports » Payroll Export



Step 1: Select Export Contents


    Select a Payroll Type and Payroll Period for the date range you are working on from the drop-down boxes and click on the button labeled Prepare Payroll for Export. Next you should see the payroll calculation being scheduled

    Select Peachtree from the drop down menu and then click on the button labeled Export Payroll Data


Click on Add Preset to begin setting up a preset for the Peachtree export

NOTE: A Preset is a set of stored settings that are used each time a payroll file is generated. If your settings change from one group of employees to another, you may create multiple presets and select the preset that applies for the group you are exporting at the time.



  • The preset window will appear.


      The following export settings should be defined prior to running your Peachtree export:


    • Preset Name: Enter the name you wish to assign to the preset.


    • Ticket Number Prefix and Starting Ticket Number: Each time ticket transaction in Peachtree has a unique ticket number. You can define the Ticket Number Prefix (such as IPS) and the starting ticket number (such as 1). The first transaction TimeIPS submits will be IPS1 and TimeIPS will increment the ticket number by 1 for each transaction.


    • Activity item ID Field Mapping and Default Activity Item (if ´┐ŻActivity item ID´┐Ż field above is blank):


      • If all transactions should be imported into a single Activity Item, set the Activity Item ID Field Mapping to Use default and enter the Peachtree Activity Item ID in the Default Activity Item ID field.


      • If you are storing Activity Item IDs for each employee or transaction in a TimeIPS field (such as the Employee's Department or Job Control Number), select that field in the Activity Item ID Field Mapping pull-down. Enter the Default Activity Item ID TimeIPS should use if the mapped field's value is blank for any transaction.


    • Customer/Job/Adm (Adm will ignore "Completed for ID"), Completed for ID Field Mapping and Default Completed for ID (if "Completed for ID" field above is blank):


      • If all transactions should be imported as Administrative Time Tickets (not per job), set the Customer/Job/Adm to Adm, leave the Completed for ID Field Mapping to Blank, and Default Completed for ID blank.


      • If you are storing Job or Customer IDs for each employee or transaction in a TimeIPS field (such as Employee's Department for Job Code), set the Customer/Job/Adm either to Customer (indicating Customer ID) or Job (indicating Job ID), select the TimeIPS field in the Completed for ID Field Mapping pull-down, and enter the Default Completed for ID TimeIPS should use if the mapped field's value is blank for any transaction.


    • Override Billing Rate with Job/Employee Hourly Rate from TimeIPS: TimeIPS can provide Peachtree with employee's hourly rates as the Peachtree Job/Customer Billing Rate for each transaction. If you want to use this functionality, set the pull-down to Yes.


    • Standardtime Code: Enter the Code used to define regular hours


    • Overtime Code: Enter the Code used to define overtime hours


    • Doubletime Code: Enter the Code used to define Doubletime hours


    • Deferred Holiday Code: Enter the Code used to identify Deferred Holiday hours

    Step 3: Export Payroll



    1. On the next screen be sure that your new preset is the one selected in the Export Settings Preset drop down menu.
    2. Optionally if you wish to add a comment to the export making it unique and easily identifiable you can do so now.
    3. Click Continue




    Step 4: Download Payroll Export


    Note: Editing of time events is locked during payroll processing to avoid having another user make changes via the Time/Edit Report that would not be reflected properly in the current payroll run.

    Click on the download link to save the newly created payroll export file.

    If you have confirmed that the information contained in this export is correct and wish to permanently lock the payroll period click the button labeled Yes, the export was accepted otherwise choose Cancel, return to TimeIPS

    If you chose Cancel return to TimeIPS the export will be listed as Pending. Pending exports can be exported again to other payroll output formats as often as you like until they have been finalized

    If you chose Yes, the export was accepted you should now see the payroll run labeled as Exported Exported payroll runs are locked, time can no longer be edited in the system for this period of time.
