How do I export timesheets? (Desktop)

Modified on Wed, 24 Jan 2024 at 08:54 AM

Okay, you've created your shifts, your team have dutifully turned up and clocked in and out, and you've even double-checked that everything looks right... Exporting the timesheets so that you can use them for payroll is probably a good next step.


  1. Head over to the timesheets page by clicking on the 'Timesheets' navigation item on the left of your screen. 

  2. Use the pay period selector above the employee menu to select the correct period to export. A period with a green tick icon is already fully approved and ready to be exported.

  3. The export button can be found on the right of the timesheets page header. Click this to open a confirmation dialog with filters.

  4. Use the filters to export timesheets from a certain location or job role (or both, if that floats your boat).

    1. If your filters include any timesheet entries that haven't yet been approved you'll see an error message to warn you. If you proceed with the export those timesheets will be excluded so you may want to approve them before you continue.

  5. Once you’ve filtered and approved all timesheets you wish to export, click the Export button at the bottom of the dialog. The timesheets will be exported into a CSV spreadsheet so that you can sort the data and import it into your chosen payroll software as needed.
