Integrations > Time and Attendance > Generic CSV Clocking File Specification

Time and attendance information can be uploaded into SimplePay using our Generic CSV import feature. You can create your own CSV file for import as long as it meets the following criteria:

  • The first row must contain headings – these can be anything that suits you but cannot contain special characters
  • The first column must contain employee numbers, which must correspond to those used on SimplePay
  • Only hours can be uploaded – we do not currently support importing of days

In order to use this file, the columns in the CSV will first need to be mapped to the relevant items in SimplePay. Please see the following related articles for details on importing the file and configuring your mappings:
