Export your timesheet information in one easy file for direct import into Shoebooks

Integration format: CSV file

The Shoebooks integration allows you to speed up and increase the accuracy of payroll processing by enabling the export of staff hours (as set up in your Ento awards) in a file format that can be directly read and imported by Shoebooks.


Initial setup

The Shoebooks integration can be added to your account by navigating to Add-Ons > Shoebooks.

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.

Job field: Allows you to export the area or role ID of the shift itself, or the ID/name of the staff's primary area or role, as the job field of your Shoebooks export.


Configuring Ento to communicate with Shoebooks

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

  • All staff IDs in Ento all match those of your Shoebooks setup
  • Each earning rate in your Ento Awards have a earning rate ID that matches a corresponding pay element in Shoebooks
  • Each leave type in Ento has an ID that matches a corresponding pay element in Shoebooks

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 Shoebooks, simply navigate to Payroll & Leave > Pay cycles and click ‘Export’ next to the pay cycle in question.

Choose the ‘Shoebooks’ 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.
