Integration format: INP file
The Attaché add-on allows you to easily process payroll by exporting a file with employee hours as set up in your Ento employment contracts for easy import into Attaché.
The Attaché integration can be added to your account by navigating to Add-Ons > Attaché.
Export options are set within the add-on edit screen:
Name: The name of the integration that will appear in your list of export options when exporting pay cycle data.
Cost account code: This option allows the area/location/store ID’s set up in Ento to be exported to the ‘cost account’ field in the Attaché export file.
Location: As above, this option allows the area/location/store ID’s set up in Ento to be exported to the ‘location’ field in the Attaché export file.
Configuring Ento to communicate with Attaché
To ensure that the export file created by Ento can be imported and read by your Attaché system successfully and without errors, you’ll need to ensure that:
All employee IDs in Ento all match those of your Attaché setup
Each earning rate in your Ento Employment contracts have a earning rate ID that matches a corresponding pay element in Attaché
Each leave type in Ento has an ID that matches a corresponding pay element in Attaché
Each earning rate has an ‘Attaché Mapping’ field that can set whether Attaché sees it as a ‘Normal rate’, ‘Award rate’, ‘Other rate’ or ‘Allowance’.
This should all be set up during your Ento implementation, so for any future changes or additions, it’s advised to chat to Ento Support for assistance.
Exporting timesheets as part of a pay run
Once you’re ready to send timesheet data to Attaché, simply navigate to Payroll & Leave > Pay cycles and click ‘Export’ next to the pay cycle in question.
Choose the Attaché export type and it’ll display information relating to the processing of data, before allowing you to download the file that you can use for importing.
