Core HR > Account Data > Import Data
If you are using your payroll system to calculate leave balances then you might want to import these into Ento.
If you are using Ento to allow to view their balances and to be able to apply for different types of leave then you are going want to routinely export this information from your payroll system then import it into Ento.
Importing vacation balances
To start a new file import, go to Core HR > Account data > Import data and click Create new.
Open the Type dropdown list and select ‘Vacation balances’. This name may change depending on your chosen terminology.
The purple bar under the file selection will then update to include a ‘Click here’ link for downloading a CSV template that includes all the fields necessary to get importing.
Select ‘Create’ as the Mode – this will overwrite the existing Leave balances, so is effectively creating a new balance.

Please note this should be run as an Update import, so only the leave balance fields are updated.
