Payroll Export



TimeIPS Payroll Export can generate a file with your payroll data. Many of these files can be opened in a spreadsheet application, such as Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice Calc, or, if using the Payroll Integration with Benefits Tracking optional module, the file can be imported in your payroll application, such as ADP, Paychex, or QuickBooks.

 

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