ADP Payline Add-on

Export your payroll information in one easy file for direct import into ADP – Payline

Integration format: TXT file

The ADP – Payline add-on allows you to easily process payroll by exporting a file with employee hours as set up in your Ento employment contracts for easy import into ADP.
Please note: This is for ‘Payline’ version of ADP. The ‘Payforce‘ version uses a different file type add-on.

Initial setup

The ADP – Payline integration can be added to your account by navigating to Add-Ons > ADP – Payline.
Export options are set within the add-on edit screen:

Name: The name of the integration that will appear in your list of export options when exporting pay cycle data.
Client ID: This should be set as your ADP Client ID. Multiple ADP ID’s/accounts can be supported by configuring multiple add-ons.
Export cost account code: This option allows the area/location/store ID’s set up in Ento to be exported to the ‘cost account’ field in the ADP export file. This can be included for all employees timesheets, or only those hours that were worked outside of the employees primary cost account.
Pay frequency: Usually best left as ‘take from pay schedule’, but you can also set it to always export as monthly, fortnightly or weekly.

Configuring Ento to communicate with ADP – Payline

To ensure that the export file created by Ento can be imported and read by your ADP Payline system successfully and without errors, you’ll need to ensure that:

  • All employee IDs in Ento all match those of your ADP Payline setup
  • Each earning rate in your Ento employment contracts have a earning rate ID that matches a corresponding pay element in ADP Payline
  • Each leave type in Ento has an ID that matches a corresponding pay element in ADP Payline

This should all be set up during your Ento implementation, so for any future changes or additions, it’s advised to chat to Ento Support for assistance.

Exporting timesheets as part of a pay run

Once you’re ready to send timesheet data to ADP, simply navigate to Payroll & Leave > Pay cycles and click ‘Export’ next to the pay cycle in question.
Choose the ‘ADP – Payline’ export type and it’ll display information relating to the processing of data, before allowing you to download the file that you can use for importing.
