Push/Sync Sales Data from Abacus to Deputy
You can push your previous sales data from Abacus to Deputy.
1. In Abacus, go to Push Sales Data to Deputy and select the date range of the sales data you would like to push to Deputy.
Note: the period selected must not exceed one month (31 days).
Click Start to begin.
2. If you have more sales data to push from other dates, repeat the above step until you have pushed all the necessary data.
3. To continue to push sales data ongoing, under Push Sales Data to Deputy, ensure that the toggle is switched to ON.
Notes about the sales sync
- If you did not push historical sales data to Deputy, connecting the account to push hourly data to Deputy will still push data from the past 7 days. If you did happen to include the last 7 days in your initial manual push, this should not duplicate the data.
- This integration will push sales data at every subsequent hour (at 12:59pm, 1:59pm, 2:59pm and so on).
- If you turn the Sales Data Push toggle to OFF, and then turn it back on at a later stage, it will sync the data from when it was turned OFF to when it was turned back ON. This means that it will sync the data in between toggles, leaving no gaps.
- Under Pull Total Timesheet Cost from Deputy (Daily), click ON. This will update the Labour Cost Report in Abacus. However, this will only pull timesheet costs from Deputy every day at 23:59.
