Importing timesheets from Deputy Standard and Premium editions | Payroll Guide

How it works

As an organisation, you may require employees to submit their timesheets via your Deputy Standard or Premium platforms. If this is the case, the payroll platform allows you to import your timesheets directly from your Deputy platform onto your payroll platform, so you can include the data in the relevant employee pay runs. Before you get started, you will need to make sure that you have platform administrator or location manager privileges on your deputy platform.

Helpful Hint

Before exporting your timesheets, you will need ‌your Payroll API Key. To read further information on sourcing your API Key, refer to the following article.
