Exporting to Microsoft Excel
You can also export your data to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. For that, you won't need to download an export. Here's how to do it:
- Run a report in TimePilot Central. (See the software's Help system for
- Click the "Export" button at the top left side of the screen.
- The standard Windows "Save a file" box will appear. Choose where to save the file and a name for it.
- In the "Save File as type" area, click the dropdown arrow and choose
"Microsoft Excel Workbook Data-Only(*.xlsx).
- Click "Save."
Once you've collected your employees' time and attendance data with TimePilot Central, you may want to
"export" the data to a payroll company or to payroll software.
TimePilot has prepared export software for many of the leading payroll software packages and services, and we're
completing more all the time. What's export software? It's a small program that takes the payroll data
that TimePilot collects and translates it into a format your payroll company or payroll software can understand.
These exports are currently available:
- ADP TimeSaver
- Foundation Software
- Paychex Preview
- ComputerSearch Micro/Pay
- Microsoft Excel (You won't need export software to do this; see below for instructions.)
Don't see your payroll package? We're adding new export formats all the time.
