Export your timesheet information in one easy file for direct import into Reckon
Integration format: IIF file
The ‘Reckon – Accounts Pro’ 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 Reckon.
The Reckon integration can be added to your account by navigating to Add-Ons > Reckon – Accounts Pro.
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.
Match Reckon types using: These options allow the employee/area/location/store ID’s set up in Ento to be exported to the various fields in the Reckon export file.
Please note: Despite the option for employee ID, employees should always be set to match by employee name, as that’s Reckon’s best method of matching.
Configuring Ento to communicate with Reckon
To ensure that the export file created by Ento can be imported and read by your Reckon system successfully and without errors, you’ll need to ensure that:
- All employee names in Ento match those in Reckon exactly, as that’s how Reckon interprets the data, rather than ID. Eg. Matt Smith won’t match Matthew Smith.
- Each earning rate in your Ento employment contracts have a earning rate ID that matches a corresponding pay element in Reckon
- Each leave type in Ento has an ID that matches a corresponding pay element in Reckon
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 Reckon, simply navigate to Payroll & Leave > Pay cycles and click ‘Export’ next to the pay cycle in question.
Choose the ‘Reckon – Accounts Pro’ 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.
