Integration format: DAT file
The ADP – Payforce integration allows you to speed up and increase the accuracy of payroll processing by enabling the export of employee hours (as set up in your Ento employment contracts) in a file format that can be directly read and imported by ADP Payforce.
Note that this for the ‘Payforce’ version of ADP. The ‘Payline‘ version uses a different file type add-on.
The ADP – Payforce integration can be added to your account by navigating toAdd-Ons > ADP – Payforce.
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.
Client ID:This should be set as your ADP Client ID. Multiple ADP ID’s/accounts can be supported by configuring multiple add-ons.
Export 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 ADP export file. This can be included for all employees timesheets, or only those hours that were worked outside of the employees primary cost account.
Configuring Ento to communicate with ADP Payforce
To ensure that the export file created by Ento can be imported and read by your ADP Payforce system successfully and without errors, you’ll need to ensure that:
- All employee IDs in Ento all match those of your ADP Payforce setup
- Each earning rate in your Ento employment contracts have a earning rate ID that matches a corresponding pay element in ADP Payforce
- Each leave type in Ento has an ID that matches a corresponding pay element in ADP Payforce
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 ADP, simply navigate to Payroll & Leave > Pay cycles and click ‘Export’ next to the pay cycle in question.
Choose the ‘ADP – Payforce’ 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.
