This article looks at the method of using Deputy to export to ADP RUN.

Getting Started

For more information about connecting Deputy and ADP Run through the connector, check out our help guide here:

How to setup the Deputy + ADP Run Integration in your Deputy account

Enable ADP to Deputy Employee Sync

The employee sync integration will pull employee data from your ADP WFN account and sync it into your Deputy account.

Data Fields

The following fields will be pulled into your Deputy account from ADP:

     1. First Name
     2. Last Name
     3. Work Email
     4. Mobile
     5. Primary Address
     6. Birth Date
     7. Hire Date
     8. AOID
     9. Pay Rate Type (Hour or Salary)
     10. Pay Rate Amount ($/hour or annual salary)

Data Sync Frequency

The Employee Sync will check every 15 minutes for any employee data updates coming from your ADP account. If any updates are found, the data will be synced into your Deputy account.

Please Note: While all other employee details dynamically update, Pay Type is unique, in that it is a one-time sync from ADP RUN to Deputy. Upon sync, an Employment Term is generated in Deputy based on the information found in ADP for the employee. After the Employment Term is generated, and the employee is using Deputy, ADP stops communicating employee pay details to Deputy. 

This means that, for example, if an employee who is already using Deputy gets a pay raise, and their pay is changed in ADP, this change will not be reflected in Deputy. Pay rates must be adjusted in both ADP, and the Employment Term in Deputy. 

For more details, see our guide on how to configure and run the ADP RUN Employee Sync:

Exporting to ADP RUN

The ADP RUN Timesheet Export will allow you send approved timesheets from Deputy into your ADP account. This will allow you to process payroll inside of ADP using the Deputy timesheet data.

Data Fields

The following fields will be sent to ADP from your Deputy account:

     1. AOID
     2. ADP Earning Code
     3. ADP Department Code
     4. Hours
     5. Units ($ Amounts)

Data Sync Frequency

The Timesheet Export must be run manually in the Export Timesheet screen in your Deputy account.

*Please note that we can only export timesheet hours for 1099 CONTRACTORS  if the account only contains 1099 CONTRACTORS. We do not export timesheet hours for 1099 CONTRACTORS if the account also has W2 employees.

At the top of your screen in Deputy click Timesheets, then Export Time Sheets.

Use the location selector in the top left corner to choose a specific location to export, or all locations. Use the date selector to match the export dates in Deputy with your Pay Frequency Period start and end dates (find these in ADP Run under Company->Pay Frequency).

If the dates above do not match, you will not be able to export. If you are exporting for multiple Pay Frequencies in ADP Run, export only the employees associated with a given Frequency. Each unique Pay Frequency must be exported separately, and between exporting different Frequencies you will need to finalize the export in ADP as shown in Step 3.

Once the date and location have been selected, select employees to export by clicking them on the list to the left.

After selecting the employees, click the blue Export Selected Items button. In the window that appears, select ADP (US) - Over the Air.

There are two options for exporting timesheets to ADP Run:

  • Use Deputy Award Library pay rates*
  • Manually select overtime rules during export

*If your company uses semi-monthly payroll periods, you MUST use the Deputy Award Library export method.

Use Deputy Award Library pay rates

Using the Award Library rates requires that all employees be setup with an award rate (e.g. FLSA Standard, California, Labor Law) in their employee profile. If the employee does not have an award rate setup, or they are using the wrong award, then their pay, overtime or shift loadings will not be properly calculated if using the new Award Library rate option. You can learn more about the using the Award Library and US labor laws here: Custom Awards Library and USA State Labor Laws.

You will need to select the correct ADP earnings codes for each type of pay you wish to export. You can do so by selecting the correct code from the drop down menu for each of the following:

  • Ordinary Hours
  • Overtime
  • Double Time
  • Sick Leave
  • Annual Leave/Vacation 
  • Shift Loadings (Eg. Allowances)

Once you have chosen the options you need, click "Export".

Manually select overtime rules during export

In the list displayed use the dropdown menus to designate which rate codes your hours in Deputy should be exported to. Ordinary Hours are any hours worked that do not fall into Overtime categories. Shift Loadings (tips) can be exported to your desired rate code. For help on setting up tips, contact our support team at experience@deputy.com.

Overtime hours are any hours that fall within your chosen overtime buckets. You can select the following overtime categories by ticking them in any combination:

-Any hours over 8/10/12 per day
-Any hours over 40 in a week
-Any hours worked on a Sunday
-Any hours worked on a public holiday

You will need to select the correct ADP earnings codes for each type of pay you wish to export. You can do so by selecting the correct code from the drop down menu for each of the following:

  • Ordinary Hours
  • Overtime
  • Double Time
  • Sick Leave
  • Annual Leave/Vacation 
  • Shift Loadings (Eg. Allowances)

Once you have chosen the options you need, click "Export".

You will receive a notification that it has gone through successfully. Next, open your ADP account.

In ADP, go to your Home page and click Time Sheet Import.

On the following screen you will be asked to select the pay frequency you exported for. Please click it.

After selecting the Frequency, you will see the hours appear.

First, verify the hours are correct. You will see them assigned to the departments assuming you set them as explained above. Leave hours from Deputy will always appear as Unassigned. After verifying the hours, click "Accept Import Only" on the lower left. This will allow you to make any changes you need to. Finally, click "Approve" on the lower right corner in ADP.

Please note, after clicking Approve you will not be able to revert this import.
