Using a file download, you can create a file export in Deputy to import into Extensis.

Before You Begin

Please ensure that your employees have a timesheet export code, and that it is no longer than five (5) characters.

Exporting to Extensis

Please ensure that you have some approved timesheets before you begin.

Now navigate to the Export Timesheets page, select the employees you would like to export, then click 'Export Selected Items'.

Select 'Extensis' from the payroll application drop-down list.

There are a number of boxes you may need to fill in, depending on your business setup:

  • Code for Ordinary Hours
  • Code for any hours over 8 hours per day as 1.5 times
  • Code for any hours over 13 hours per day as 2 times
  • Code for over 40 hours a week as overtime, 1.5 times
  • Apply 7th day rule. If worked 7 consecutive days, first 8 hours paid as 1.5 times, and the rest as double
  • Apply a Sunday overtime code
  • Apply a Public Holiday overtime code
  • Code for Sick Leave taken
  • Code for Annual Leave take

When you are done, click 'Export'.
